A little bit of history about these four Risom Beauties
These four chairs originally belonged to my Nanna who had them reupholstered, and due to this they are unbranded.
They were produced and manufactured by William Latchford & Sons Pty Ltd, who was the Australasian Licensee for Jens Risom, operating from 1953 until 1986, in Sydney and right here in Melbourne, Box Hill.
If you are Mid Century Risom fan, you will know he was involved in all the processes from design, production to manufacture ( this is why he did not follow in the footsteps of his father to become an architect and became furniture designer, even establishing Design Control later in his years), thus the design that stands the test of the time and wear and tear.
It has been a beautiful journey, to be held by these armchairs each Sunday, as we would read, talk or just day dream.
We are choosing to part with them, rather than store them due to downsizing, as we believe they should be continued to be enjoyed and loved in a new home.
In his own words, "Good design means that anything good will go well with other equally good things."
Whether you are just starting to curate a beautiful collection for your home or are a long time fan, the answer is still Risom.
