Caress

A collection composed of a bed and a linear sofa with structure in padded wood, featuring light capitonné work on the back of the sofa and the headboard of the bed. The quilting with buttons is kept close to the surface, for a clean, modern look with respect to the traditional deep dimples of Chesterfield sofas. The tall headboard can be enhanced by two upholstered lateral panels that accentuate the presence of the sommier and form a sort of backdrop for the bedside units. aa

Design By John Hutton

John Hutton, an influential home furnishings designer whose work has been widely imitated by mass-market manufacturers in the United States and Europe. From 1978 to 1998, Mr. Hutton was the design director of Donghia, a leading supplier of fabrics and furnishings to interior designers and architects. After he left Donghia, he started his own design company, opening offices in West Islip and Nancy. His designs are characterized by a glamorous bravura and a love of voluptuous classical forms. He was particularly influenced by the 18th-century Italian architect Palladio. “He was a great furniture designer,” said Barbara Bloemink, curatorial director of the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in Manhattan. “I believe he has been called a national treasure. His designs were classic, elegant, beautifully proportioned and timeless. He got his inspiration from museums, not furniture fairs.”
