CHESTER'S X D'ASCOLI
We are pleased to collaborate with Chester’s, the artisanal furniture maker from Bangalore, to create a range of upholstered furniture featuring our signature printed fabrics.
The Jamavar group of seating is inspired by the famed shawls of Kashmir that have been favored by Indian nobility for centuries and had reached the pinnacle of European fashion for much of the nineteenth century. Prized for their detailed paisleys, stylized bhuti, and ornamental stripes, our ensemble mixes an array of patterns engineered on single, double, and three seat sofas paying homage to one of the most enduring styles in the rich Indian design vocabulary.
Sitting 18 inches off the ground, the Isfahan Bench is upholstered with button-tufts in a design with a dramatic central medallion, meandering vines, and stylized foliage in the style of a Persian carpet. Offered in a range of four colors, the fabric features our distinctive vintage textures giving the feeling of an antique carpet.
The GARA CHAIR is a smart, button-tufted armchair covered in a distinctive linen print inspired by the embroidery designs belonging to and made famous by the Parsi community in India. Stylized flowers, butterflies, and birds dance on a textured background and, if you sense a far-eastern influence in this design you are not mistaken as the Parsis were traders traveling to far-flung locales, and the Chinese embroideries sent back from Canton and Shanghai were worn at home and even influenced local craft traditions until this unique new style emerged.
Inspired by French Art Déco armchairs, the Vionnet Chair is covered in an old-world floral chintz juxtaposed against a classic ticking stripe with an ikat detail. This use of iconic French inspiration for both the chair silhouette and the upholstery fabric makes this seat familiar, and traditional with a contemporary twist.
The Nomad group of seating features 7 different designs on a mix of printed linen and a heavy cotton fabric engineered to create a sumptuous celebration of pattern-on-pattern in an exotic, bohemian style statement. This sophisticated mélange of patterns is offered as a single or a double seat size.
An elegant honey-maple wood framed chair, the Devonshire Chair takes its name from the noble English family from the midlands famous for their collection of Tudor tapestries. A dense leaf design sits inside the chair, while a bold flame-stitch pattern wraps around the outside. Brass tacks complete the look, giving this stylish combination a classic feel.
