Custom Goatskin Lacquered Console by Steve Chase from Chase Designed HomeAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with this custom goatskin lacquered console by Steve Chase. Recently procured from an extraordinary coastal cliff top home in Laguna Beach which was custom designed in it's entirety by prolific Southern California based designer Steve Chase.
Work on the house began in the early 1980s and was expanded and completed by the end of that decade. Chase performed as the interior designer as well as being involved through the construction phase from start to finish. Every piece of furniture, built-in cabinetry, millwork, hearth and shelving was custom-made to fit precisely to the home, featuring a generous amount of Lucite, which Chase was well-known for incorporating in his work, including an impressive three inch thick solid Lucite banister running up a curved stairwell. The owners developed a close friendship with Chase and they travelled together on numerous occasions.
This custom Aldo Tura styled console was originally part of the exquisite living room, which as you can see in the photos provided, was uniquely Chase. These pieces embody Chase's signature design aesthetic, as described in his own words; deliberate, unexpected and with touch of humor. Chase was also known for his use of lacquered goatskin and other exotic materials when creating his designs. Featuring a minimal, curvaceous Silhouette with reflective chrome casing on each base end and a single shelf all wrapped in a green/gold-toned neutral hued lacquered goatskin. This console would add a touch of luxury to a space that every room deserves.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with this time honored exotic console you can regale about to your guests for years to come. This piece can be used in a dining room, hallway, living room, entryway, games room, office or bedroom. It would also be an Apt choice for a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel, cocktail bar, members club, conference room, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
