The truth is Jennifer Aniston would look good sitting in a plastic lawn chair. However, she seriously looks fabulous curled up in a purple velvet chair on the March cover of Architectural Digest.
Apparently I am not the only one who has noticed Jennifer and that gorgeous chair. Architectural Digest has been flooded with inquires over the past few days. The vintage chairs (circa 1970) were purchased from the extraordinary New York based Lobel Modern and covered in a deep violet fabric by Manuel Canovas. According to propietor Evan Lobel, “They are grand in scale and comfortable. And, they are glamorous, just like Jennifer.”
Lobel Modern offers an amazing collection of furniture, lighting and art by important designers from the 1940's thru the 1980's. A few include Edward Wormley, Harvey Probber, Paul Evans and Karl Springer. Evan Lobel was Exhibition Coordinator of the retrospective on Harvey Probber in 2003 and has been hailed by Architectural Digest as the "New York dealer who has been instrumental in putting Springer back on the map."
Lobel Modern is open to the trade and public or you can browse their wonderful collection online.
