How the client came to know Maxwell Blake

Custom replica Saarinen executive series armchairs and side dining chairs with walnut legs

Maxwell Blake has been working with this design firm for many years, providing custom, modern furniture from sketch to fabrication. In addition, we provide finishing on many Modern Classics that include Designer textiles from Maharam®, Designtex® and Knoll® Textiles.

Project description

Several custom-made pieces were produced for this project including replica Saarinen executive series armchairs and side dining chairs with genuine walnut legs, upholstered in a Knoll® classic Boucle (Pearl) around a modern walnut table. Also, reproduction Bertoia barstools upholstered in a Knoll Boucle textured fabric, surrounding a marble breakfast island.

Project challenges

The client required a fabric with a Krypton backing which posed a challenge as it cannot be glued, so we had to think creatively and use a different upholstery method to upholster the chair frames.

Client's experience working with Maxwell Blake

Overall, the client was very happy with the completed furniture customization as well as Maxwell Blake's flexibility, knowledgeable and professional staff, experienced upholsterers, and the personalized service.
