With its low-line silhouette, Jeanette is designed for the outdoors with the sophistication of an indoor dining chair.
Tom Fereday extrapolates on the suspended sling shape of the Jeanette collection, to devise a refined bar stool perfect for entertaining.
Blurring the porous line between indoor and outdoor, work and pleasure, home office and bar – the Jeanette lounge chair is a bona fide hybrid that works hard to wrestle down time from the room.
A combination of precision metal work and traditional hand finishing, Jeanette is a unique sculptural wire lounge and armchair contrasted by soft inviting cushions and elegant and yet inviting high back design.
Offering a range of new materials and finishes, the addition of the Jeanette coffee table range explores natural materials combined with intricate and sophisticated detailing.
