Stop by the SR Hughes showroom to see Kartell’s wide variety of outdoor seating and furnishings. Kartell Italy is know for their cutting edge plastic furnish that is stylish, tough and low maintenance. We have Kartell available for sale off the showroom floor and special order.

We’d like to thank Wallace Engineering owners Tom and Susie Wallace and their photogenic staff for letting us shoot their fabulous rooftop deck decor of Kartell Bubble Club seating and Knoll Maya Lin stools. If you haven’t driven by the Wallace Engineering building in downtown Tulsa yet, you must check out their fabulous warehouse remodel at 200 East Brady.

The evening was both educational and energizing. The film was interesting, educational and entertaining. But, I was most enthused about all the linkage – the sponsorship with SR Hughes (I now better appreciate their furniture), the partnership with Circle Cinema, the announcement about the donation by George Kravis and the personal appearance by Gary Huswit.”

The Gates Comes to Philbrook

June 13, 2009

What did it take to install 7,503 saffron fabric gates in Central Park?  In 2005 the artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude conquered red tape, permits, and permissions to bring the “golden river” to the people of New York City for 16 days.  Discover the struggles and triumphs of their 26-year journey in this documentary by the renowned filmmakers Antonio Ferrera and the Maysles brothers.  Then stick around after to meet the artists in a Q &A.  The film is 97 minutes, not rated, and is the recipient of the Peabody Award.

Cassina Le Corbusier Installation at Philbrook Museum of Art

Cassina Le Corbusier Installation at Philbrook Museum of Art

Have a seat.  Le Corbusier would have wanted you to.

In 1929, there were some new concepts of furniture on display at the important Salon d’Automne exhibition in Paris.  They were designed by Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier.  Visitors to the exhibition were perplexed and somewhat shocked, for the furniture seemed to have but one aim in mind – function.  To Le Corbusier: what is a chair if not an object that carries out the function for which it was intended, the support of the human form in a semi-erect position?  He was not interested in decoration or ornamentation, and you can see here that the basic components of his chairs are organized around the simplest possible support framework, a metal tube.  Brilliant!  In 1929, people were baffled by Le Corbusier.  Today, his creations are in the permanent collections of institutions such as MoMA and licensed reproductions are at home, work, and play all over the world.

Now it’s easier than ever to own a Le Corbusier chair.  SR Hughes is excited to announce that Cassina is offering 15% off all Corbusier designs from Oct 6th – 18th, 2011.
