Stellar Restored Set of 16 Block Island Cane Chairs by John Hutton for Donghia

About the Item

This magnificent large set of organic dining chairs is shipped as professionally photographed and described in the listing narrative: Meticulously professionally restored, newly custom upholstered and completely installation ready. Expert custom upholstery service is available. A sublime set of sixteen (16) dining chairs from the limited production Block Island collection created by John Hutton (1947-2006) for Donghia, circa 1995. This design is Hutton's graphic, highly textural interpretation of the work of Jean-Michel Frank. Examples from this particular series are nearly impossible to find for sale; a set of this magnitude is the equivalent to capturing a purple unicorn. Mr. Hutton was the firm design director from 1978-1998 and was responsible for many of the now iconic Donghia designs produced during that period. While Hutton's immense talent was always recognized within design and architectural circles, this influential modern designer's work has finally become more commonly appreciated by the mainstream. Stout mahogany frame construction veneered in block patterned cane, executed to look like Rush style wicker. The custom tobacco glaze finish has aged to absolute perfection. Incredibly crafted pieces built for heavy regular use - built like a battleship. Important chairs intended to anchor a serious dining room. Excellent Restored Condition. Meticulous professional restoration. All cane veneer is intact, complete and aged to perfection. NEW expert custom upholstery in a neutral Larsen fabric. The price listed is for the set of sixteen (16). Retains the Maker mark. Expert custom upholstery service available.
