About

Mid-Century Modern brown saddle leather bar stools, Charlotte Perriand, France 1960s. Stunning set of 3 French Mid-Century Modern bar stools designed by Charlotte Perriand for the ski resort “Les Arcs” in France 1960. The stools have chrome plated tubular metal frames and thick natural saddle seats with amazing patina. For sure one of the most popular bar stools around the world. The French designer Charlotte Perriand won instant acclaim for her design for the “Bar sous le toit” (bar in the garret) in 1927 - then only twenty-four years old -, shown at the Salon d’Automne in Paris. The project brought her to the attention of Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, who asked Perriand to join their atelier. Passionate about mountains and nature, she was one of the architects and interior designers of the ski station Les Arcs, in Savoie. Throughout her career, Charlotte Perriand focused her research on the relationship between man and his environment. In this way she created furniture which is comfortable, functional, but also recognizable and timeless. Charlotte Perriand worked on such legendary designs as the Shelving System Home of Mexico, the Table Extensible, and the wall lamp CP-1.

About the Designer

Charlotte Perriand

A pioneer of modernism in France, Charlotte Perriand was one of the most influential figures in 20th-century design and architecture. In her long career, Perriand’s aesthetic grammar constantly evolved, moving from the tubular steel furniture of the Machine Age to a lyrical naturalism.

Perriand’s studies at the Ecole de L'Union Centrale de Arts Decoratifs left her enthralled by Le Corbusier and his vision of a new, rational architecture. In 1924, she joined his studio to design furniture along with Pierre Jeanneret, Corbu’s partner and cousin. Together, they devised some of the finest examples of early modernist furniture, including two icons of the era: the B306 chaise with its swooping frame and hide upholstery; and the chunky, steel-framed Grand Confort club chair. Collaborative design produced another Perriand triumph: in the early 1950s, she and Jean Prouvé were engaged to produce desks, worktables and bookcases for the University of Paris. The bookcases — slim pine shelves with brightly painted aluminum dividers — are minimalist masterpieces.

By the end of that decade, Perriand’s aesthetic had changed completely from the earliest days of her career. She produced a series of furniture in ebonized wood: chairs with gentle S-curve legs, front and back; tables with elliptical tops. In the mid-1960s, she adopted an almost rustic look, designing simple chairs with dowel-cut frames and rush seats. Yet everything in Perriand’s oeuvre is beautiful, whether it’s the centerpiece of a décor or an accent. Charlotte Perriand’s work is in every great design collection, public and private. Works on these pages will show you why.
