Hickory Chair, one of the lines we carry at Knox and Panoply, recently launched a new collection that includes this dramatic new Bird Wing Chair. Inspired by Mid-Century Modern and Scandinavian design, world history, travel, contemporary art, and textiles, the Hable for Hickory Chair furniture collection combines form, texture, and color into one harmonious grouping that brings a fresh dimension to the extensive brand offering. 

 

The most expressive piece in the Hable for Hickory Chair collection, the Bird pushes the limits of craft through its poetically curved lines, graceful presence, and stern posture. This chair is inspired by a 19th century classic wing chair that caught the eye of designer Susan Hable on a tour through the Met, NYC.

 

With taut upholstery hugging each curve of the frame, this piece is truly a work of art. The Bird proudly debuts the importance of refinement through numerous curve studies via hand sketching, 3-D printed parts, and hand carvings, all the while pushing the boundaries of solid wood. This chair measures 47.5 inches high, 32 inches wide and 41 inches deep, and it features a Dark Walnut finish. To learn more about this collection, give us a call at 770-251-4557.
