Kingston Chair by Douglas Fanning

 

Douglas Fanning makes a departure from lighting with this curvilinear beauty. The Kingston Chair is hand bent and seamlessly welded to give an elegant sculptural form. Fabricated from blackened and lacquered steel with a leather upholstered seat, Kingston features a generous yet petite proportion at 36" wide and 26" high. Like all Douglas Fanning pieces, the Kingston chair is made by hand in the designer's Redhook, Brooklyn workshop.
