Animal Instinct

I inherited two Bauhaus style chairs from my late grandfather, who had a great eye for design and a passion for quality.  The chairs were originally upholstered in deco green leather, but I’ve  recently upholstered them in a zebra print ”Le Zebre” from Brunchwig & Fils.   This handprinted linen fabric goes well with the streamlined design and the chrome finish. Using animal pattern was popular in the 1920s when the chairs were originally made (Le Corbusier’s Chaise Longue  was covered in cowhide). It is remarkable to think that these chairs are nearly 100 years old and still look so contemporary.
