harvey probber + jack lenor larsen

I’m still on a sugar rush from this week’s Pastel Power storyboard, and thought I’d dive into the design archives again and feature two of my favourite purveyors of visual candy: furniture designer Harvey Probber and his favoured fabric designer Jack Lenor Larsen.

Harvey Probber was popular for his furniture in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and was largely responsible for introducing the idea of sectional, modular seating in the States. He’s become incredibly collectible in this century, especially for his upholstered seating.  His designs have been described as “witty caricatures” he drew throughout his life of "chairs as people”.  I just love how they mess with your head.

The items shown here are all upholstered in Jack Lenor Larsen fabrics, whose individualism attracted fans such as Marilyn Monroe.  Through his passion for international weaving and textile crafts he introduced techniques like ikat and batik to American audiences.  Lenor Larsen, like Probber, was both forward-thinking and bold.
