Spectacular Art Deco Desk and Chair In Style of Ruhlmann
Item #1368 SOLD
You’ve probably only ever seen a piece like this in books on Art Deco. This custom piece was made for our shop, the goal was to re-create this famous Ruhlmann desk. The finest Macassar wood was chosen and the “ivorite” details were shaped and inlaid by master craftsmen working to create this timeless classic. A real signature of the Grand Art Deco period. The finish is pure “French” polish with parchment leather inlay as part of the writing surface of the desk. The drawers are all joined in the class French tradition, heavy and meaningful. Even the chair is completed to emulate this design and of course, needs to accompany the desk. The chair is upholstered in fine white leather to match all of the inlays in the desk.
This one will certainly take your breath away!
Ruhlmann’s legacy as a designer was the subject of a major retrospective exhibition at the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2004. In 2009, he was called the “Art Deco’s greatest artist” by the New York Times.
