Design I Love: Erwine and Estelle Laverne’s Lily Chairs

Erwine and Estelle Laverne, two painters who studiedĀ at the Art Student’s League under Hans Hofmann, decided in the 1938 to establish Laverne Originals- a design firm.

In 1957, Laverne Originals debuted the Invisible Group which consisted of curvy, see-through furniture. Reminiscent of Eero Saarinen‘s Tulip chair, the Laverne’s Lily chairs appear to be a homage to Saarinen’s design.

I love this and I cannot wait to re-create it for a miniature room design.
