Restored Rare Mid Century Sling Chair by Designer Don Shoemaker
***Please note: this item is part of our current window display. It can be purchased now with pick up available after October 4, when our new window display is installed.
Incredible and rare mid century sling chair by design icon Don Shoemaker! This gorgeous chair is beautifully designed with organic sculptural curves, all carved out of solid cocobolo wood and held together with pegs. The original leather sling was worn and torn, so we replaced it with a striking distressed charcoal tone leather, and re-used the original leather nail collars. The wood has been freshly oiled and cleaned, and is in excellent structural condition (please note: this wood has a tendency to show superficial cracks along the grain lines - this is a normal part of the aging process). Don Shoemaker lived in Mexico and started his company Senal S.A. in the 1960s, taking inspiration from the local culture and landscape. His pieces were made by craftspeople in Mexico and exported all over the world to be enjoyed. Truly a work of art from every angle, this chair is also incredibly comfortable, perfect for lounging and enjoying a cocktail or reading a book. $1995
