Experience the Modernist Movement


Risom Chair for Knoll Studio

When selecting furniture for a client’s space, I never resist the urge to incorporate history into a home. Yes, history.  It is a beautiful dance of who we were, who we are becoming, and remembering who came before us; those who set the precedent for interior design today.  Jens Risom is one of those people.  He is a remarkable designer whose work is now iconic.  Risom is credited with blending traditional Scandinavian values with post-war American furniture design creating beautiful, simple lines with an interesting connection of materials.

Knoll Studio Risom Lounge Chair

This style is reflected in the Risom chair for Knoll Studio.  This piece of simple wood construction using surplus military webbing was designed before Risom entered the army during World War II.  Although designed in 1943, the Risom chair still resonates a quiet touch of modern aesthetic which makes it a chameleon for anyone’s home.  Although the Risom chair is one of Knoll’s best values, you can have this piece in your own home and experience the modernist movement — priceless!


From Feb 28th to March 3rd, 2012 save on the classics (like Risom) from Knoll.  Come into SR Hughes and we’ll help you find the perfect fit for your space.
