Russel Wright for Thonet Settee in Navy Velvet & Tiger Maple

$ 5,250
  • Description
    Furniture manufacturers who have stood up to the test of time did so by continuously transforming themselves. There are many examples of this throughout the years during which design was a sought after commodity. In particular, one company who would see countless iterations of is Thonet. Starting off as experts in decorative bent wood, the company would evolve to take on more adventurous feats such as its entrance into the Mid-Century Modern design movement.

    In collaboration with the designer Russel Wright, the shown simple and quite early Mid-Century Settee for Thonet remains relevant to this day. Aspects of this piece’s uncomplicated form are regularly reproduced in today’s contemporary design world. We’ve chosen to preserve this Russel Wright design by undergoing a to-the-frame restoration. The Object Refinery team selected our classic 100% cotton Italian Velvet in the color Navy which handsomely pairs with the completely refinished solid tiger maple arms - a wood known for its exotic striation grain. This settee’s petite size makes it the perfect accent in a multitude of interior settings. In a foyer, a reading nook, or even a dressing room; the options are limitless.
