  • T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings for Saridis Klismos Chairs in Walnut with Leather Thongs
    By T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, Saridis
    Located in St. Louis, MO
    Single T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings Klismos chair for Saridis of Athens, Greece in Greek walnut and leather woven seats. This chair was part of the collection he designed for Saridis of Athens in 1961, inspired by the drawings he saw on ancient Greek vases.

Its simple but opulent curves hint at sleek penthouses with butlers who serve cocktails on the terrace at sunset. (Indeed, Robsjohn-Gibbings’s Saridis...
