Custom Large Room Divider by Steve Chase from Chase Designed Home, Circa 1980Automaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with this grand scaled room divider 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 1980's 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 room partition was originally part of the exquisite living room, 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 use of moulded man made material finished in an on-trend high gloss gray lacquer with four recessed lights that cast down onto the countertop below. Underneath this counter are three cupboards, one double door and one single, which all open to reveal shelves for storage. The base is sleekly finished with a polished chrome band.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with this time honored room partition you can regale about to your guests for years to come. This slick room divider can be used in a living room, games room, family room, dry bar, den or office. It would also be an apt choice for creating pockets of space and breaking up the layout to allow for different concepts in a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel, restaurant waiting area, cocktail bar, members club, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
