Mid Century Sofa with Handmade Textiles and Vintage Obi

About

This sofa is part of the Gendo Collection, the first collaboration between couture-trained fabric artist and designer, Maki Yamamoto and Melissa Dougherty, designer and creator of one-of-a-kind upholstered seating. The collection includes a sofa, chair, bench and vanity-sized stool. The Saidai sofa (meaning "maximal" in Japanese) demonstrates a variety of techniques, including pleating, free-form hand and machine stitching, and creation of flowers (or other sculptural details), along with the use of traditional (e.g., Japanese Obi) alongside contemporary textiles. Custom designed fabric treatments are applied by hand using sculptural and traditional upholstery techniques–ensuring that the design retains its original integrity and gains strength. All fabrics are lined in muslin to reduce wear.

View Profile
Couture seating, made in Brooklyn. Our seating stands apart, it sets an agenda. Simple frames are selected so that an artistic collage of textiles can be the focus of each piece. We work with weavers, fabric artists and designers whenever we can, to create textiles that will adorn an individual seat. Like any work of art, the completed piece will be a special part of your room design for years to come. The Studio Series is our line, designed and created in our Brooklyn studio. Our Vintage Collection leverages existing frames to create entirely new pieces, elevating chairs to works of art. We collaborate with textile artists, pushing the boundaries of what is possible with seating. Each seat is envisioned and sketched individually, allowing artisans, designers and their clients to be in synch. In addition to a variety of commercial fabrics (or COM), textiles are created and applied by experienced masters using traditional techniques and a sculptural hand, We love visitors, so feel free to stop by our studio.
