The Art of Relaxation

December 13, 2013

Darshan Phillips and his crew built this suspended sculpture in our showroom for our new window display.

We have this idea that at our best we can show people the art of furniture, lighting, rugs … that we can help them see something beyond what they imagined as a way to live in and use a home, office, or outdoor space.  So we asked Darshan how we might show people that idea with 4 individual chairs.  I thought this could be a challenge because not many people imagine something artful if you give them the word “recliner” as a beginning.

He came up with several ideas, but the one we thought was a no brainer was to build this suspended artwork in our store.  I have to say, we were stunned by the result.  It looks as if Darshan took a snapshot just as someone tore the wrapping off of a giant box and threw the glittering gold wrapping into the air exposing the gifts below.

We believe Cassina, Poltrona Frau, and B&B Italia have taken original ideas and translated them with the best materials and highest craftsmanship into 4 beautiful recliners … proof positive that there is an art to relaxation.

Click on the image above to see how the crew worked for several straight days to create this amazing floating piece of art and catch a glimpse of how to recline in style.  Then, come by the showroom to take a test drive and see it all in person.

Lyrical Details

September 4, 2011

These days we’re too often in a hurry, pulled in too many different directions, to stop.  Take notice.
What looks like a chair, is of course a chair.

But take a moment.  The craftsmanship is perfect, down to the last detail.  There are those who would settle for nothing less.

Good art makes you stop, consider, take note.  This is a gift.

Artistry does exist in furnishing.

Lyra chair, first produced in 1935 by Poltrona Frau.  Available today only at SR Hughes.  Slow down, stop in, take notice.
