Custom Illuminating Daybed by Steve Chase from Chase Designed HomeAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with this channel tufted chaise longue by Steve Chase. Recently procured from an extraordinary coastal cliff top home in Laguna Beach which was custom designed in its 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 designed chaise was originally part of the exquisite master bedroom, which as you can see in the photos provided, was uniquely Chase. This piece embodies Chase's signature design aesthetic, as described in his own words; deliberate, unexpected and with touch of humor. Featuring channel tufting, which is particularly on-trend right now, this expansive daybed has deep comfortable seating for kicking back and relaxing and is upholstered in a chenille mix fabric in a neutral tone. But the most remarkable feature of this chaise is the illuminated base which can be plugged in at the back and once switched on the chrome reflects the warm glow of the light giving it a soft yet luminescent radiance.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with this time honored chaise longue you can regale about to your guests for years to come. This piece can be used in a living room, den, family room, media 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, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
