mister gibbings, c’est love

March 30, 2011

I’ve been a fan of T.H. Robsjohn-Gibbings for years.  Generally if you have any knowledge of the history of furniture design, particularly in the past 150 years, you probably know who he is.

For those of you who don’t know who he is and are interested, here’s a link to some info about him.

I think what I love most about his pieces are the beautifully designed legs.  I am putting 8 Gibbings dining chairs in a house, and the legs are what make the otherwise simple chairs.

Gibbings was well known for his Klismos line, inspired by Ancient Greek design, this lounge is definitely one of my fav’s!
