We are so excited to present this very unusual and rare 3 piece sofa suite. Of French origin, this is a project in the works for many years. We purchased this suite about 9 years ago and finally found the inspiration, time and money to restored this original modernist suite. This was approached with complete respect to the original design. The shape is something special and not something you probably will see again, at least on this web site. Please notice the shape, in the direction of the Frankll "Speed" chair, but that is where it ends. Instead of having those typical squared off arms, these more attractive, have a gentle curve, with a very unique stepped back (almost layered). I've never seen this treatment before. We wanted this suite to have a complete restoration, but we chose to go with leather (as the original).
The leather was hand chosen for this project. A very special tanning process with many steps but ultimately hand burnished to give that unique "antique" glazed look. It looks old, but has all the integrity of new materials outside and inside. The original bones are all there of course. It is so beautiful to see I just can't get over how great this looks.. You have to sit in it (so comfortable, guaranteed). The shape and pitch of the chairs just puts one in the right mood and ready to experience the day, the night, the life! For me, of course a "cocktail". Every now and then we get something so unique and the process of completion is a labour of love. This is one of those signature restorations for us. The size is also very nice. Not oversized, check the sizes below.
We've just finished this very nice newly made and upholstered modernist chairs. These came out great, something with a rather new color for spring "sea-foam" and it looks wonderful, sits wonderful and will supply you with all the comforts you might expect from well designed and well made chair. These are not JUST for looks. This is a chair we've made in the past, check out inventory #1176. For this particular pair, we have made some adjustment in the size and also the depth. I find these extremely comfortable, in fact, so comfortible, we sold a 3 piece set before we ever had the time to finsih this pair. They are hot!!!!!!
Curvilinear design and rare Macassar Ebony are the key features of these substantial Art Deco Armchairs with their strong Modernist design.
This stunning recent restoration in a warm tangerine/brown/dark pumpkin mohair is a real winner. Nice size and great shape. Very very comfortable. Not our typical deco undertaking, but we've worked with some wonderful designers who are using our great upholstered furniture in many sophisticated and elegant settings. This suite will certainly fit nicely for someone. The nice wood frames enhance the elegant but comfortable shape.
One of the great Art Deco stylists and designers, this wonderful chaise lounge or fainting chair embodies all of the unique attributes surrounding great 1920's French Art Deco style. Purchased directly in Pairs, the frame is original and unrestored with what appears to be a like new period fabric (or at least period style). In excellent condition. The chair has great dimension, portrayed with stylized vines, leaf and fruit carved in a three dimensional style, exemplifies the unique French style that Dufrene, is so well known. The fabric compliments the bleached white chair scalloped edge finish which could easily be touched up or refinished to your liking. The fabric design, with a stylized floral motif is in beautiful gold/black/gray tones. The fabric appears in excellent condition and needs nothing!
Here is a wonderful chair and ottoman. The style is modernist and looks a lot like the "Jazz" chair manufactured in the 1980's. This one, I believe is an original restored chair from the 1930's. The style is great and very striking in the pink and black toned leather. Especially the pink leather triangular lines that amplify the shape on the sides of the chair. It is very comfortable and we recently enhanced the loose cushion construction. When you are sitting in this playful chair you must be stylin!
Art Deco barstools - period. Made with rosewood and gleaming chrome streamline hardware and accents. The cushions can be done in many treatments: The two-tone (brown/cream) leather seat cushions, these have ostrich styled leather with mohair tops. These fetching barstools with strong deco design are built to last.
This is a wonderful and special chair. Just completed restoration using some very special leather. The chair has been stuffed totally with a down cushion sitting on newly built springs. Feels great and feels like it would last another 50 years. The leather has a kind of retro look, almost as if it has that special patina you only get from years of use. Guess what, the leather is brand new. The chair is firm, so plenty of opportunity to break this classic club chair into someone's special seating area. Nice thing is the size, slightly small with a "big" look. Not over-sized, so it will fit into any kind of room: living room, library, office, den or bedroom. I can imagine a nice side table, with a bridge lamp and sipping your favorite beverage. I guess today you might be reading from your i-pad or kindle! Well that's about as retro as most people get these days.
Offered here today is a fantastic shape and original design of French club or side chairs, sometimes referred to as salon chairs. Not your typical boxy modernist streamline art deco chairs. These have a beautiful curved back, interesting shape with unusual carved arms, a detail often seen in the work by the French artist Paul Follot. We did change the seat fabric (original was worn out) to a nice blending ultra suede, but were able to keep all else original throughout, a kind of African inspired modernist repeat animal print. It is not often possible to do this, but I bought them planning to restore them with this in mind. We have done a nice refreshing on the wood finish, tightened the original copper springs and replaced most of the French nails to create a consistent color all over. It is really a treat to find French fabric like this and be able to preserve the original design and intention of these beauties. They are ready for another 50 years.
A wonderful design, great wood treatment and a style of seating we do not find often enough. Spectacular Macassar side panels in a solid wood frame. The fabric is new, but has a great retro feel, a sort of soft tweed in solid burgundy leaning with a slight red accented with outstanding contrasting gimp piping. It just sets the whole thing off. Photos do not do them justice, so you might just have to fly into the shop and take a seat. Cushy feel and nice size, not to large, but very luxurious with a wonderful lush down stuffed loose cushion seat. We were fortunate enough to find 4, so if you have a the kind of room where you can use 4 chairs in one area then Great. We are selling them in pairs until they are gone.
First time we've tried to re-create these wonderful French style club chairs. Inspired from a chair I found many years ago in France, these beauties have all of the impact, feel and comfort from the kind of chair you would LOVE to sit in. This is specially chosen leather (of the highest quality) and antiqued by hand, produced to give that wonderful aged glaze look you only see in old chairs. The great thing about these chairs is this: although they have been slightly reliced, the leather is not cracked or in a state of ruination as you typically find in old original leather club chairs. Completed with a mohair seat (which is an authentic detail) and antiqued brass nails heads. Also, notice the detail of the leather front feet, again something you rarely see in old chairs or new.
The size is great and I am sure you can imagine these in your private viewing room or just in viewing your private fireplace. They are sold in pairs and right now we have 4 pieces total in stock. Someone is going to love these, come in and try them on for size.
Offered here is our latest creation. We had a pair of these chairs a few months ago and there was so much interest in them, we decided to re-create them for those of you who missed them the first time. Of course they are identical in every way except we found some fabulous Art Deco fabric inspired fabric that takes them to another level. The wonderful "volute" style design (a kind of abstract fountain) is about the best "new" fabric we've seen in years. The contrasting creamy mohair adds that elegant touch of period and sensibility. They also swivel so I am sure you can imagine all the fun one could have sharing cocktails on a pair of these. They would be ideal for an intimate corner setting, an special bedroom or an addition to your living room set up. Just enough style and design to make a serious statement and live in the world of art deco glamour!
We are always trying to take our restored and re-upholstered sofa suites a step further. They have become a sort of trade mark here at Art Deco Collection.com. We are not shy about exploring our design ideas, just look through all of our "sold" items at the bottom of this page (lots of great ideas). This particular set is like no other one we've done before. I was inspired by a recently acquired book on European Art Deco chairs and sofas (I mean we have to get our ideas somewhere). This new idea using the oversized leather welting looks dynamic, in order to really make it comfortable to sit on, we had to insert or recess the welting so if felt natural as you leaned back sipping your dry martini! No problem here!
We are using some of the highest quality materials here, great mohair with some of fines leather skins we are able to buy. We do not spare any cost in these restorations. Of course we love the "tight" cushion seating and the oversized round arms, which not only look great, but you can flip your legs over the size and melt back into either the chair of sofa. Another little detail is the leather channels on the lower front bands of both the sofa and chairs. Its all here for you to enjoy "for a lifetime".
A wonderful original and restored Art Deco sofa. A real visual treat. The piece was lovingly restored! Please take note to see the beautifully inlayed abalone and mother of pearl inlay in the wood, executed in a kind of modernist pattern (not random for sure). Someone originally took care to design this with the utmost care and use of fine materials. This newly reupholstered piece has a dynamic fabric that certainly will draw your attention not only to its unique and exquisite shape, but also offers an point of view that would be hard to find anywhere else. This one of a kind piece is looking for just the right home and just maybe you are the right person!

Item #1368 Added May 23, 2010
You've probably only ever seen a piece like this in books on Art Deco. This custom piece was made for our shop, the goal was to re-create this famous Ruhlmann desk. The finest macassar wood was chosen and the "ivorite" details were shaped and inlayed by master craftsmen working to create this timeless classic. A real signature of the Grand Art Deco period. The finish is pure "French" polish with parchment leather inlay as part of the writing surface of the desk. The drawers are all joined in the class French tradition, heavy and meaningful. Even the chair is completed to emulate this design and of course needs to accompany the desk. The chair is upholstered in fine white leather to match all of the inlays in the desk.
This one will certainly take your breath away!
Ruhlmann's legacy as a designer was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004. In 2009, he was called the "Art Deco's greatest artist" by the New York Times.
