MODERN FURNITURE DESIGN

By | July 4th, 2011|all, Andre Sornay, Dining chairs, Dining Space, Jean Prouvé, Mid-Century Modern, Tables|

Modern Furniture  features simple geometrical lines with plain surfaces. Some of the most well known Modernist designers include Jean Prouve, Pierre Chareau, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, Alvar Aalto and Le Corbusier . Modern designers combined a functional, linear and proportional approach to furniture, where the structural elements are the most important to the aesthetic look of the piece of furniture.

This is a  pair of custom dining room chairs we just created for a client. The chair on the left is one of a set of six dining chairs that the client had and the other two chairs to the right are two additional reproductions we created. When designing a space something to consider is the existing furniture you would like to keep.

FRENCH MODERN DINING FURNITURE

By | May 4th, 2011|Chairs, Dining chairs, Dining Space, Dining Tables, French Hand Polish, French Modern, SEATING, Tables|

This dining room features a dining room set in the French Modern style.  French modern furniture has a simple, linear character with the fine craftsmanship similar to those of traditional furniture designs.  This style of furniture can match nicely with other styles including art deco and a range of contemporary styles.  Some of the noted French modern furniture designers (or designers who achieved notoriety in France) include Eileen Gray, Jean Prouvre and Le Corbusier.  Modani has a nice summary of some of Eileen Gray and Le Corbusier’s work. Dining room designed by Glenn Gissler Design.

Swedish side chair

Designer: Grant K Gibson

The Gustavian chairs incorporated in the design to the left reminded me of a set of six Swedish dining chairs we created a few years ago. The dining room set of chairs were drawn from an original Gustavian chair that the client had found at a show. The additional five chairs were custom made by ERA Interiors for the project and were finished to match the existing gold leaf of the original chair. These chairs look elegant in modern as well as traditional spaces and incorporate the warmth prevalent in this historic design style.

It is essential to have a master craftsman with the ability  and knowledge necessary to create an identical reproduction.  There are a  lot of factors involved  in reproducing a furniture design including using the same materials/wood type and creating the same finish.  Here the client provided the chair on the left side and we created an identical side chair that will be finished and upholstered with the same finish and fabric as the original. When creating an identical match, especially if the two furniture pieces are located in the same space, we strongly recommend that the client to provide us with the original furniture piece so we can create an identical furniture match.

KLISMOS CHAIR

Here is another version of a Klismos chair brought into our studio for production.  The client likes the shape but would like a new fabric and another matching chair for a set. Having an original is always the best, however not always possible.

This version of the Klismos, especially the seatback is quite popular and looks great in a number of different of variations.  We’ve done several klismos chairs over the years including this ebonized version and here is an extended discussion on it with several other variations.

Pictured is a dining space that was designed and created by Steven Gambrel. The dining chairs  in the picture are vintage and were provided by Axel Vervoordt . These dining chairs are very similar to a pair of solid oak chairs we are currently making for a client.  The new custom chairs will be finished in a light natural wood polish and will feature brushed stainless steel metal stretchers at the bottom of the chairs, instead of the wood stretchers featured in chairs in the picture.  The main advantages of creating custom furniture is the flexibility and the great number of elements that could be incorporated or changed to achieve the clients desired furniture design.
