Description

The original artifact and inspiration for the Sheraton Dining Arm Chair is believed to be inspired by Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann, a genius of the High-Style French Art Deco movement. His works were, and still are, distinctively elegant and unabashedly luxurious. By the 1920s Ruhlmann was the most prestigious and sought-after designer of his day. Ruhlmann created works of classic simplicity, fashioned of the finest materials and according to the highest standards of craftsmanship. His designs, notable for their harmonious proportions, architectonic structure and restrained use of ornament, are graceful and highly original translations of the Neoclassical tradition into a modern idiom.

This splendid take on a historical rich piece was adapted from a chair believed to have been inspired itself, by Ruhlmann’s Drouant Chair, given to the New Mexico History Museum by Ms. Eugenie Shonnard. Most likely, she either inherited the piece from her Boston-born parents or purchased it during her years living in Europe.
