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 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.
