A stunning rare set of eight (8) dining chairs from the limited production Merbau collection designed by the esteemed John Hutton (1947-2006) for Donghia, circa 1995.

Mr. Hutton was the firm design director from 1978-1998 and was responsible for many of the now iconic Donghia designs produced during that period. While Hutton’s talent was always recognized within design and architectural circles, this influential modern designer’s work is finally becoming more commonly appreciated by the mainstream. Stout heavy rattan construction with seat and back veneered in heavy rush style rattan. Design, material selection and craftsmanship that is beyond incredible. Stout, sturdy, comfortable and built for heavy routine use. Breathtaking organic jewelry designed to anchor an important dining room. Excellent restored condition. Professionally cleaned and re-lacquered; the rattan has aged to absolute perfection. All cane accents and rush wicker veneer is intact and complete. Retains the maker mark. The price is for the set of eight (8) chairs.
