Don Shoemaker

Rare pair of rosewood and leather chairs in wonderful condition, Don Shoemaker 1960.

A stunning pair of vintage safari chairs in solid rosewood and leather.

US born Don Shoemaker has created a sculptural masterpiece with the ‘Swinger Chair’ for its pivoting mechanism that allows you to swing in your seat.

We have this pair in our collection at the moment together with a matching sofa and table.

The bold design is perfectly executed in exotic timber with a vibrant grain and constructed with pegs to allow the sofa to flat pack (hence Safari suited).

Artistically sculpted exotic cocobolo rosewood put together in an eye catching and interesting biomorphic form, this model shows the rare arm-rests, which makes it stand out even more.

Thick hide leather and exquisite leather details give it a distinct flavor.

The thick black leather hides used for the removable seat cushions and the seat back sling are complemented with leather buttons connecting the sling to the frame of the chair.

The chairs are in very good vintage condition, the frames are all clean, sturdy and sound, with only some minor surface wear here and there commensurate with age.

Dimensions: 30″ x 33.5″ x 30.5″ / seat height is 17″.

Dimensions 77.5 × 85 × 86 cm
