This chair has as its antecedent a man's regency frame club chair. Its scale would blend beautifully bedside fully upholstered seating, but its glimpses of wood and the carved Greek Key hand rest lend dignity, stature and sex appeal. Being "editorial" in small doses, as is this chair, allows for the Gregory to truly add design value to its setting, without taking over, and overwhelming with a heavy handed statement. It is cool and quiet, structured and tailored. Its scale is a wonderful alternative to the norm. Shown in standard Dark Walnut finish.
