Daybed in the Style of Charlotte Perriand with Fruitwood Frame and New InStyle Upholstery, France, 1950s
This exquisite daybed references work by one of the preeminent figures of the modernist movement – French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand. It features a fruitwood frame, circular ebonised legs, new In Style upholstery with button detailing and a velvet bolster, also newly upholstered. Together, these elements echo two daybeds designed in the 50s by Perriand. The first is the Cansado Daybed, created for the newly-built African town of the same name in Mauritania for which Perriand designed many of the furnishings, and second, the daybed she designed for a ‘chambre d’étudiant’ at the Maison du Brésil, circa 1959. Needless to say, it references modernist design to perfection and champions the work of Perriand. We particularly love the finger joins at each corner of the frame, and the velvet bolster for a touch of vintage luxe.
