Description Mark Brazier-Jones Jaba Chaise Longue Circa 1997

Magnificent rare masterpiece by the artist Mark Brazier-Jones Jaba Chaise Longue, designed 1997, the button and tufted chaise beautifully upholstered and finished in a deep sumptuous zebra pattern velvet with a large velvet bolster cushion to upper top section, applied roundels with hanging twisted metal tassels to the front and sides of the bolster, raised on a heavy solid silvered bronze frame with scaled serpents legs and feet with talons to the front of the chaise and horned legs to the rear, stamped Brazier-Jones, a true statement piece in every sense of the word, extremely comfortable and certain to blow the socks of guests, outrageous, decadent and stunningly beautiful, reserve now.

About: Mark Brazier-Jones was born in New Zealand in 1956 and moved to the UK at the age of 12. After earning a BA in ceramic sculpture, he found work in the emerging music video business. In the late 1970s and early ’80s, he designed and built sets for the likes of David Bowie, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Freddy Mercury, and Elton John.

As he became enmeshed in the legendary London warehouse party scene, he developed a close friendship with both Tom Dixon and Nick Jones, members of local band Funkapolitan. The three friends started the Creative Salvage Group in 1983, later to be joined by André Dubreuil.

After a few years, Brazier-Jones moved to the countryside and returned to his ceramic roots. Soon he was sculpting furniture to be cast in bronze. He conceived his first limited-edition chair, the Wingback, in 1987; it was sold out before the start of 1988. Other standouts from Brazier-Jones’ career include the Bond Armchair (ca. 1990), San Demas Lounge (1996), and Duchess Chandelier (2010).

Brazier-Jones’s work can be found in museum’s around the world, like the Victoria & Albert in London, Museum of Art & Design in New York, and Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, as well as many important private collections.
