I first spied this chair in an Traditional Home's February/March 2016 issue: A design by Kara Mann for Baker Furniture's Milling Road collection.
Edgy and glamorous all at once, the design jumped off the page and into the back of my head. The leather! The burnished gold! That cantilevered seat! Hubba. I can see this chair getting so much better, and so much cooler, with age.
Then, a month later, a Baker catalog arrived in my mailbox, and I fell in love all over again. Now I can't look at a decor site or showroom without seeing furniture constructed from woven straps of leather or sling-style seats fashioned from a single piece of hide. Have a look at some of my latest favorites.
Since I don't currently have any room in my house for any of the above, save perhaps the magazine rack, a pair of cute-ass Sole Society wedges is probably the only way I'll be incorporating this strap-happy trend into my life. But what about you? Like the look or hate it?
