Cherry Art Nouveau Armchair
This armchair was designed and built as two of a set of twelve chairs for a New Hampshire residence. It provided me with the opportunity to develop and refine some of the basic Art Nouveau motifs that would become part of my design signature, as they evolved over the years. The carving design of the crest rail, back splat and apron reappear in varying forms in my work.
I was able to use leather for the seat and back splat, which supports a clear definition of the form, and a more uniform coloration. This armchair appeared in an exhibition in Boston, and was selected for publication in the "At Home" section of the Boston Globe, on 11-16-1984.
