Roche Bobois French Cantilever Burnt Orange Suede Side Chairs on Chrome Bases

$5,950per set

About

Original set of (6) exquisite Roche Bobois dining / side chairs. These channel tufted burnt orange suede chairs are equal parts 70's glamorous and modern. The original chrome finish has been hand polished allowing the metals to gleam in the light. Perfect for any Mid-Century Modern or Hollywood Regency interior. Very uncommon creation by famed French maker Roche-Bobois. We've never seen anything like them and are uncertain as to the designer. Nevertheless, their look is timeless and quality is exceptional. Don't hesitate, might be the last time you ever see 'em, and certainly not in original orange suede. Don't compromise or settle for anything less (unless you really have to). Roche Bobois is a world leader in furniture design and distribution with 225 locations worldwide. Working closely with renowned designers such as Marcel Wanders, Kenzo Takada, Ora Ito, Cédric Ragot, Sacha Lakic, Christophe Delcourt and Stephen Burks and with Haute Couture fashion houses such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Missoni Home and Christian Lacroix Maison, Roche Bobois offers a broad range of exclusive made-to-order designs, manufactured with a high level of customisation in small European workshops.

About Milo Baughman (Designer)

Milo Baughman was one of the most agile and adept modern American furniture designers of the late 20th century. A prolific lecturer and writer on the benefits of good design — he taught for years at Brigham Young University — Baughman (whose often-scrambled surname is pronounced BAWF-man) focused almost exclusively on residential furnishings, having a particular talent for lounge chairs, perhaps the most sociable piece of furniture.

     Like his fellow adoptive Californians Charles and Ray Eames, Baughman’s furniture has a relaxed and breezy air. Baughman was famously opposed to ostentatious and idiosyncratic designs that were made to excite attention. While many of his chair designs are enlivened by such effects as tufted upholstery, Baughman tended to let his materials carry the aesthetic weight, most often relying on chair and table frames made of sturdy and sleek flat-bar chromed metal, and chairs, tables and cabinets finished with highly-figured wood veneers.

     Like his colleagues Karl Springer and the multifarious Pierre Cardin, Baughman’s designs are emblematic of the 1970s: sleek, sure and scintillating. As you will see from the furniture presented on these pages, Milo Baughman’s designs are ably employed as either the heart of a décor or its focal point.
