About

Lawrence Peabody Danish Lounge Chair for Craft Associates Furniture Lawrence Peabody Danish Lounge Chair for Craft Associates Furniture is expertly crafted and upholstered. Each chair boasts hand cut high-density foam and high grade commercial fabric. Constructed to spec from the original, each frame breaks down and ships flat. The chair's frame and base are constructed from hardwood by hand, not machine. The walnut base is then shaped by artisans and finished with a hand applied oil OR commercial grade finish. about the designer Lawrence Peabody, an architect, interior designer, and furniture designer, was born in 1924 in Haverhill, MA. Mr. Peabody often preferred the name "Larry" instead of Lawrence although he tended to use the name Lawrence professionally. He was known to be a flaming extrovert and was rarely reserved in his opinions. He had a clear love of design even choosing the Navy because he liked the uniforms. After serving in WWII he was able to take advantage of the GI Bill. This allowed him to study at the Rhode Island School of Design. At RSID he was heavily influenced by Ernst Lichtblau who was part of the Austrian Werbund. At the time there was a heavy Bauhaus influence due to many Europeans who had fled to the US for WWII. After RISD the story goes that he wandered around Europe and ended up taking courses at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. While there he met his wife Bette who he wed in 1952. She was originally from Norway, a bit older and extremely interesting in her own right. She was part of the Danish resistance during the war, helping out as a nurse. She had also studied psychology and was a teacher. During a trip to Haiti, Lawrence became friends with Dewitt Peters, the founder of Haiti's Le Centre d'Art. Together they promoted interest in primitive Haitian art by corresponding with museums overseas. Lawrence bought a beautiful home in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti in which he split his time later in life.

It is recognizable by it's clean, unadorned interiors. Use of natural materials such as wood, leather, teak and linen are prominent. Molded plywood and plastic is very popular in modern furniture, as well as polished metal. Furniture is very open and raised off the floor allowing for an airy feeling. Walls are often white adding to the expansive feeling. Modern interiors generally have bare floors and if area rugs are used, they are typically wool, and neutral in colour. Hints of colour were used in moderation…" - Relish Interiors Blog designer: Lawrence Peabody Manufacturer: Craft Associates® Modern Furniture Period/Model: Mid Century Modern Specs: Walnut (oil finish), Hardwood Frame, High Grade Commercial Fabric Yardage: 5 Yards (1 chair); 7 Yards (2 Chairs), 4.5 Meters (1 chair); 6.5 Yards (2 Chairs) **Please note, if the fabric has a repeating pattern, extra fabric is required** dimensions H: 28 (71.12cm) W: 30.25 (76.84cm) D: 32 (81.28cm) Arm Height: 21.25 (54.61cm) Seat Height: 17.5 (44.45cm) Seat Width: 22.5 (57.15cm) Seat Depth: 19.25 (48.895cm) pricing Pricing to trade: Yes International Shipping: Yes
