Orange Featherstone by WoolleyWorld

Grant Featherstone was a great designer …I particularly love his furniture. I have owned and drawn this chair over many years…
This drawing was for an animation back ground. (a long 360 degree room interior)
Eventually gave the “orange chair” to a friend (Len) who has restored it..(poor things insides were broken)
Pastel on rag paper. 100×65cm

    These designs considered “outrageous” at the time have become such classics…
    …so happy you found someone who would restore it! The stuffing will go first, but the frame and style truly is timeless. And in orange, too : o my kat!

    Is the little shadow figure in the back part of another set design?

  • Hi did hurt a little to give it away (sob) but it was for its own good….Agree with your comments about “timelessness”…a true indication of great design..
    and yes, that is a dolls shadow in the backround….part of a planned 360 degree drawing
