1st Dibs Finds

I was in the Brown Jordan showroom the other day and spotted the Sol y Luna High Back Barstool, an adaptation of Dan Johnson’s Gazelle Collection from 1954. What a beautiful chair he designed! I went looking and found these originals on 1st Dibs.

The Gazelle Collection was "originally offered in wood or bronze, both with woven caning for the seat and back. However, due to the high cost of production, and the intense hand labor involved, fewer than 150 pieces from the Gazelle line were ever produced. Now made in durable cast aluminum by outdoor manufacturer Brown Jordan, the design maintains Johnson’s comfortable organic form. Made in Mexico."~DWR
