The Wingback Chair by Tom Dixon
In addition to the sale, Tom Dixon is celebrating one of their most iconic furniture and upholstery lines throughout the month of October. The Wingback is a seating series that builds upon a 17th century English archetype re-thought and updated for the 21st century. The extravagant and fully upholstered form has been tweaked and teased to give an even more rakish silhouette, the ergonomics adjusted for more comfort as well as the frame being re-tooled for industrial production. The result is an elegant functional sculpture fit for the members club, the hotel lobby or a special place in your home.
The collection includes an arm chair, a dining chair, sofas and an ottoman. Each chair's legs are made of solid oak or copper-plated steel. All are available in a wide range of colors and fabrics.

Think Piece: Christopher Boots on the Healing Power of Minerals
Christopher Boots’s bronze folding screen shimmers with quartz and lapis lazuli
In his native Melbourne, industrial designer Christopher Boots grew up hunting rocks. His favorite find? Quartz. These days, hunks of the common crystal join a sprinkling of lapis lazuli in the Aussie’s first room divider. “I like to get my hands dirty,” says Boots, who cast the celestial screen in bronze using a lost-wax method to leave hand marks and a surface-of-the-moon texture on the limited edition of eight. Of his innate draw to minerals, the designer says: “I do believe in their healing power. We would probably improve as a species if we had more elements of nature in our interiors.” Available through Twentieth in Los Angeles.

Her work has always revolved around simplicity; it is a process of working toward a pure aesthetic. Each piece designed and crafted entirely by hand enables her to cross boundaries between sculpture and design.
I never felt compelled to get involved with rugs until I met Brian. The way he integrates metal with textile is brilliant! And I can guarantee you’ve never felt anything so soft and luxurious in a floor covering! --Stefan
Twentieth is proud to announce ERDEN’s Southern California launch.
Founded in 2016 by Brian Erden, ERDEN’s approach to rug design rests on three primary pillars: technique, innovation, and curiosity. Drawing from such disparate genre as theater and physics, ERDEN’s first collection of hand-woven carpets is comprised of materials ranging from suri alpaca to patinated bronze.
Humps uses buried negative space of hemp flatweave and the natural loft of camelhair to effect undulated dunes of pile.
Two Bar combines unique yarn prep with ERDEN’s patented embedding of objects into a woven textile for the floor—in this case, bronze bars with hand-channeled surface details.
Etched is available in Mohair, Alpaca, Merino, and Hemp with staccato dashes of two types of hand-carved bronze.
Park uses the pressure contained in each knot to cause an ombre-of-design in an otherwise static trellis.
ERDEN’s purest design: Steps in Suri Alpaca.
All designs are available in custom sizes.
