Item Details
“As if you could kill time without injuring eternity...”
—Henry David Thoreau, Walden
Everything seems as if it has been done before; but take a minute and think outside of the box. Even if you really just take a box: elongate it gracefully, tilt it slightly, recline it majestically and upholster it smartly. This chair is handmade by the finest craftsmen in Los Angeles, upholstered with genuine leather and Hermès fabric, this duo provides durable comfort with substance and panache. It is soft, yet firm, supple and unexpected, but the perfect solution for all occasions.
In ‘The Ocean at the End of the Lane’, Neil Gaiman said, “Nobody looks like what they really are on the inside. You don’t. I don’t. People are much more complicated than that. It’s true of everybody.” But I still have hope and I put it all into this chair’s design. I hope that it somewhat came to be a soft place to land away from life’s frenzy.
We invite you to sit and kill time without injuring the eternity.
