Legendary husband and wife design team Charles & Ray believed that functional modern design should be available to the masses. They also believed that their role as designers were that of grateful hosts catering to the needs of their guests. Having experimented with molded forms for years, Charles & Ray were keenly aware that the organic shapes achievable offered something new in the furniture industry. Not only could they be mass-produced, but the forms themselves offered something entirely new in design and function. Originally molded from fiberglass, and plastic later, Charles & Ray's Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Armchair (aka DAW and "shell chair") became a 20th century icon and has embedded itself into the design culture of the 21st century.
Inmod's Molded Armchair with Wood Legs is an accurately interpreted replica that emulates the molded form of the seat, styling & proportioning of its wood & steel wire base down to each intentionally created detail. Like the original, the Molded Plastic Armchair with Wood Legs is constructed of fully recyclable polypropylene. Its authentically styled base is constructed of black powder-coated steel wire and solid beech wood legs. No expense has been spared in creating a quality reproduction you can be proud of and cherish for many years.
The Elaine Sofa delivers a uniquely chic Danish-inspired modern look defined by its organically-shaped silhouette, smooth seating surface, stylish button tufting and thin tapered legs. Upholstered in a 1950s reminiscent microtweed fabric, the Elaine Sofa's solid wood frame, sinuous spring system, and sleek continuous seat cushion that stretches arm to arm will generously seat and comfortably support three guests.
The Elaine's distinct shape can be traced back to mid-20th century Scandinavian influences. Its appreciation for simplicity, organic forms and for its materials were signature characteristics exhibited in the works of designers like Finn Juhl, Hans Wegner and Torben Lind. A centuries-old technique, tufting, was a favorite among notable designers of modern furniture, from the Bauhaus period to present-day. From Le Corbusier and Van Der Rohe to Hans Wegner and Ducaroy, the times have proven that clean lines and accented button tufting never goes out of style. While many of the distinguished works produced by such makers remain available today at a premium, the Elaine Sofa provides an iconic look at an unparalleled value.
