The Director's chair has a long and chequered history. Originally developed by the Romans as a military stool or chair, the “X” base resulted from the need to fold the chair and transport it easily. This is a characteristic we’re sure was appreciated by the likes of Julius Caesar, and perhaps today by Hollywood’s best. This iconic design is seen throughout the middle ages in both military and more civilian furniture. Then in the 15th century, the design appears in the Savonarola chair, named after the vibrant Renaissance personality Girolamo Savonarola. Many centuries later a much more modern interpretation debuts in Ludwig Mies van de Rohe’s Barcelona chair. Our approach combines stainless steel, leather and mahogany, a look that is equally at home in interiors spanning from the Regency to Art Deco period. The lion’s head echoes the popular Neo-Classicism traits of the Regency period, signifying power and strength, while the form of the chair reflects the Empire attitude of luxurious comfort and fine craftsmanship – both integral to the Regency way of life.
