Robsjohn-Gibbings Style Lounge Chair in Cowhide Leather

Robsjohn-Gibbings Style Flared Arm Mahogany Lounge Chair in Cowhide

Out of stock

Description

This Robsjohn-Gibbings style chair is unmarked, but we are certain is has a designer pedigree. The angles, contours, sculpting and dimensions scream Gibbings and Grete Jalk, but our team was unable to ascertain our suspicions. Observe how the arms not only flare outward from the back joints but blossom in width. The legs arch away from the frame as well in a graceful curve. Every inch of this chair is steeped in thoughtful design and constructed with the precision of a true craftsperson.

About Robsjohn-Gibbings:

Terence Harold Robsjohn-Gibbings (1905–1976) was a British-born architect and furniture designer. In the late 1930s and 1940s, he was the most important decorator in America. After opening a shop on New York’s Madison Avenue in 1936, Robsjohn-Gibbings proceeded to design houses from coast to coast for major patrons including tobacco heiress Doris Duke, Alfred A. Knopf, and Thelma Chrysler Foy. In the 1960s, he became designer to Aristotle Onassis. Gibbings’ style is hallmarked as a modern mixture of the classical elements of Ancient Grecian design and Art Deco design. His sculptural, sparse, elegant furnishings achieve his trademark brand of modern historicism.
