Custom Velvet Cantilever Club Chairs by Steve Chase from Chase Designed HomeAutomaton Vintage Furnishings
Invest in a piece of design history with this set of eight chrome cantilevered club chairs 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.
And as an added feature, these pieces were recently selected (and reupholstered) to dress the set of Ryan Murphy's second season of American Crime Story for FOX. This season is based on the murder of Gianni Versace. The set decorators selected a vibrant bubblegum pink velvet for these particular club chairs and reupholstered it specifically for the show. Be sure to watch this season for two reasons: First, it is sure to be an exciting season and storyline, and secondly to see this set of Steve Chase Cantilevered Club Chairs make it's debut on a blockbuster TV Show with other amazing set design by Matthew Ferguson.
Work on the Chase house, where this daybed was procured, 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 set of eight custom designed club chairs, similar in style to chairs by Milo Baughman for Thayer Coggin, 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 swooping chrome cantilevered bases supporting sleekly curved barrel shaped seats.
So get your hands on a fragment of an incredible story with these time honored tub chairs you can regale about to your guests for years to come. These cantilever chairs can be used in a living room, den, family room, media room, office or bedroom. They 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.
