About this artwork

This armchair and stool were designed by prolific English architect Edwin Landseer Lutyens for the showroom of a plumbing fixtures company located on fashionable Pall Mall in London. Lutyens was best known for his historical designs, but here he combined classical motifs, such as the chair’s open-splat back, with a geometric style aligned with the Art Deco movement of the 1930s. The legs of this pair feature the Delhi Bell, a style of column capital Lutyens invented.
