Drawing inspiration from World War II bomber planes, this chair’s aerodynamic curves are hugged in riveted aluminum, while the seat and back are swathed in ribbed leather with the busted-down softness of a vintage bomber jacket. A low seat and raked back give it true flyboy swagger.
About the Designer:
London antiques dealer and furniture reproductionist Timothy Oulton is driven by a passion for traditional handcraftsmanship. Born in Manchester and immersed in his father’s antique business since childhood, he inherited Major Philip Oulton’s eye for beauty and his intrinsic ability to see artistic value and perfection in a product’s design.
Philip’s passion for antique furniture led him to open Halo Antiques in 1976. In turn, his sons were inspired to develop a furniture collection that encompassed the skills and talents of true artisans. Tim and his brother, Charles, branched off on their own, and The Halo Group was born.
