Ron Seff

American, 1934 - 1990
Ron Seff opened his New York workshop in 1968 and lived almost his entire life in the city. His early patrons include designers Mark Hampton, Robert Metzger, Michael Desantis and Karl Springer. Seff collaborated with Karl Springer for the Springer collection in the 1970s. Seff’s contemporary designs were inspired by many styles, including Bauhaus, modern sculpture and Art Deco. He has been credited with reviving the use of shagreen, lacquered goatskin, parchment and straw-all of which were popular in Art Deco design. Seff also used distinctive metals and other exotic materials including mother of pearl, bone, rare woods and various animal skins. His work remains vibrant and relevant to the design community to this day.
