A very important section of the Winterthur library is the Decorative Arts Photographic Collection. One photograph is of a handsome sofa covered in black horsehair and outlined in brass nail heads. The sofa has a serpentine front, gracefully curved arms, and a high back with a slightly raised central section. Its legs and stretchers are basically rectilinear in shape. The sofa’s form is an
unusual but striking mix of both Federal and Chippendale styles.
Hickory Chair’s artists found the photograph of the horsehair sofa while searching the Winterthur Library for the best in design. They have enlarged the original dimensions of the antique to create a sofa more suitable for today’s consumers. Close attention to detail and high-quality craftsmanship typify Hickory Chair’s production methods. The resulting furniture will become an important part of today’s living environments that emphasize unparalleled quality and comfort.
