Her style has been described as Hollywood Regency and Maximalism. She is credited, alongside Jonathan Adler and Miles Redd, to have brought “the florid and the decorative back to interior design”. Here you will find 5 amazing dining chairs by this inspiring designer – enjoy!
A bold interpretation of a classic form, the Melange Dining Chair is the paradigm in nuanced modern design. This dining chair features solid cast brass legs with an artisanal hand that’s been finished in a lightly polished burnished brass patina. The upholstered body is available in a selection of curated fabrics and leathers.
The Ardent Dining Chair is a casual seating option featuring a petite, tightly bolstered back and waterfall seat wrapped in a stainless steel frame. The elegantly curved frame is finished with a hand-applied aged pewter patina. The clean lines of this chair give it a modern sensibility while remaining approachable as either a formal dining or occasional chair.
The clean, architectural lines and casual sensibility of the Zuma Dining Chair make this dining option a modern classic. The bent oak frame with its sweeping curves comes in an ebonized or bleached finish with thoughtful brass detailing. The tightly upholstered seat back wraps trimly around the frame and the boxed seat has a self-welt detail. The underside of the seat features Kelly Wearstler’s badging and a unique artfully printed dust cover.
This artisanal and rich texture, along with the hand-carved quality of the legs, give Canon Dining Chair casual dining option a singular level of refinement. The tightly upholstered inside and outside back and waterfall seat offer substantial comfort but keep the lines of this chair tailored and clean.
The Laurel Dining Chair features a dramatic and swooping open back, tight upholstered seat, and a softly rounded silhouette. It rests on tapered cast brass legs in burnished brass. Sublimely comfortable and ideal for casual dining, or occasional seating.
