Custom Leather Banquettes by Steve Chase from Chase Designed Home, PairAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with these channel tufted leather banquettes 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.
These custom designed banquettes were originally part of the exquisite dining 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. Featuring channel tufting in a charcoal gray leather, of which both are particularly on-trend right now and a strip of chrome casing that surrounds the bases.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with these time honored sofas you can regale to your guests for years to come. These pieces can be used together or individually within the home in a dining room, den, breakfast nook, living room, games room or office. They would also be an Apt seating choice for a corporate, retail or hospitality location such as a boutique hotel, cocktail bar, restaurant, members club, conference room, workspace studio, executive office or in a luxe clothing emporium.
