One-of-A-Kind Chairs

It is our passion to bring new life to vintage chairs. We restore iconic designs of the past to be loved and lived in today. Every piece that leaves our studio is distinctly one of a kind with both vintage character and a new look for modern living. These are statement pieces worth designing a room around.

Upcycled Womb Chairs

We like to consider what we do a form of recycling, but of course, in a most luxurious manner. Our upcycled Womb Chairs are some of our most popular designs. Eero Saarinen designed the groundbreaking Womb Chair at Florence Knoll's request for "a chair that was like a basket full of pillows - something she could really curl up in." The Womb Chair is a design icon with comfort at its core. We take that to the next level. After undergoing a complete restoration from the frame out, each seat and back cushion gets 100% feather fill for an incredible sink-into, enveloping feeling. With beautiful finishes like sheepskin, boucle, cowhide, and luxury fabrics from Loro Piana and Pierre Frey, our bespoke Womb Chairs are worth designing a room around.

John O'Hara Art

We are proud to be the exclusive gallery of John O’Hara (American, b. 1963). O'Hara is a self-taught artist from Saint Louis and is known for his large-scale decorative pieces. His medium of choice is encaustic—a mixture of pigments and beeswax and he allows the material to dictate color, line and texture. His work is included in both public and private collections around the world. Michael Kors selected O’Hara’s Tar series for his Milan, Paris, and New York showrooms and London flagship store designed by Pamela Meech. O’Hara’s Brands on Yellow is hanging in the lounge of Maison de Luz, the new luxury hotel by Atelier Ace and designed by AD 100 design firm Studio Shamshiri.

Introducing Rabitti 1969

In 2015, Italian home décor brand, Giobagnara, acquired the famous Italian saddle leather specialist, Rabitti. Rudi Rabitti, who launched the company in Milan in 1969, was a pioneer: his was the first brand to offer a wide array of home accessories in this type of leather. With Rabitti 1969, Giobagnara is expanding its offer, both by revisiting the house archives and creating new collections. Because saddle leather is thick and particularly sturdy, it needs no reinforcement and makes it possible to create objects entirely in leather. Three words. Italian. Saddle. Leather. Need we say more?

Beautiful Palm Sculptures from Oaxaca

Rrres Studio is a collective of artisans and makers using traditional crafting techniques based in Oaxaca, Mexico. We fell in love with their beautiful palm sculptures crafted by a family from Tlamacazapa.

We love the curvaceous shapes of the palm sculptures but their size truly makes each a statement piece. From a design perspective, we love them displayed in groups. It adds height, visual intrigue, and a beautiful story. We also love bringing natural elements indoors - think marble, stone, beautiful woods. The lightness, warmth, and touchable texture of palm is a favorite.

Introducing Artist Marine Edith Crosta

We are trilled to welcome London based artist Marine Edith Crosta to Forsyth. Marine Edith Crosta (B. 1985) studied Fine Arts in Bordeaux, France, and exhibited her work internationally. Mostly known for her miniature paintings, she is now going back to exploring portraiture, in oil paint, focusing on skin tones, garment renderings, and expressive brushstrokes.

We adore her Lost at Sea miniature tondi paintings. The small scale exhibits an intimacy in the images. And even though the subjects are scenes of stormy seascapes with waves crashing and cloudy skies, there is a calmness and peacefulness to each. We love them hung in groups.

New Work by Emily Buck

Based in London, British artist Emily Buck studied History of Art at the Courtauld Institute of Art.

In October 2020, Emily had a solo exhibition as part of London Craft Week at celebrated fashion label Roksanda's flagship store in Mayfair. And in July 2021, Emily was featured in British Vogue. Forsyth is thrilled to be the first US gallery to represent Emily's beautiful work.
