The final piece in DAVIDSON’s exciting new West Coast Collection, the Boulevard Armchair is a slightly different take on the theme of Californian luxury and 1970s American elegance.
The West Coast Collection is an exciting debut collaboration with Anna Standish, a designer celebrated for her ability to mix unconventional aesthetics in order to create a superbly characterful and personal style.
Working with together with Anna, we have created a collection of pieces that seeks to epitomise the intoxicating glamour and energy of 1970s West Coast design. 1970s American Interior Design was a powerful reaction against mid-century modernism, opting instead for whimsical creations and experimentation with form and finish. Taking as cues the period’s celebration of self-expression and individuality, we have sought to develop pieces that feel fresh, vivid, and utterly original.
As such, the chic and inviting Boulevard Armchair represents the best of bold, daring 70s-inspired furniture design - not to mention an exceptionally comfortable seat for your home.
Fully upholstered in a smart and confident shade of coral wool by Holland & Sherry, the curvaceous yet unobtrusive tub-like form of the Boulevard makes it surprisingly easy to integrate into a range of interiors. Whether it be a room rooted in sleekly minimal decor, where the chair would provide a powerful pop of colour, or a busier room scheme of playful patterned textiles and characterful furniture choices, the Boulevard represents an original and exciting addition to your home.
As with other pieces in the collection, we found inspiration for the piece in David Hockney’s iconic works from this period. Hence the echoes of the punchy colour palette and all-American pizazz of 70s LA that so bewitched Hockney. The Boulevard, with its slightly retro edge, holds a mirror up to that era, with its love of innovation and cheeky, light-hearted style.
As with any DAVIDSON piece, the Boulevard can be upholstered in a range of fabrics or leathers to suit your interior, and the size can also be customised as required.
