Open Road Armchair with KKDW

I’m thrilled to announce the launch of the Open Road armchair, my first collaboration with KKDW. Kelly is such a talented designer and it was a real dream to work with her on this piece. The chair features a sleek and subtly angular frame welded from solid steel rod by KKDW. With a veg tan leather seat and back hand-stitched by Canoe, the chair is simple and strong with a refined silhouette.

Check out the subtle pattern on this beautiful piece of veg-tan. Over time, the leather will soften and darken with age and use. Both the seat and back are carefully and slowly hand stitched. Cursing may have been involved at times, but it was said with love.

I can’t deny the rumor that Kelly made me go blonde to match the chair. I’m pretty happy about it.
