Victorian Peacock Rocker


An old boss and design mentor once said to me....."There are no bad colors, just bad applications."  I think the same can be said about design styles (although I'm still trying to make sense of Memphis).  Nothing like a little Victorian to add some texture and layers to your modern, boho, or eclectic interior.  Or garden.  This Victorian peacock wire rocker looks great with its original paint and patina, but could be easily freshened up or have its color changed.  45" h., 32" w., 34" d.  Late 19th c.  $295.00

Wendell Castle; Castle Chair

Your home.....your Castle.  Our April windows celebrate Wendell Castle (1932-2018).  Wendell Castle was "the most important postwar American furniture designer, by a long shot".  (Glenn Adamson, senior research scholar at the Yale Center for British Art and the former director of New York's Museum of Arts and Design.)  His work often blurred the line between furniture and art, and he was known as the "father of art furniture".  "I thought of the work as sculpture, not furniture" he told The New York Times in a 2010 interview.  His career spanned more than a half-century and his works are included in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago.  This month's Architectural Digest pays tribute to Castle with a six page article featuring his work and his Scottsville, NY home.  We are featuring his iconic, organic "Castle Chair" in orange.  It was designed in 1969 as part of the molar series and is made of molded fiberglass.  It's art, but it's also extremely comfortable....and functional, with its cup/ snack/ remote/ etc..... holder platform.  24" h., 44" w., 36" d.  American, c. 1970  $2,450.00
