This side chair was designed in the popular Thomas Sheraton style, blending use of classical and contemporary marquetry with traditional carvings & inlay. The veneer inlay is in the form of a face, created with the same materials and techniques as the traditional fan marquetry that flanks it. The location of the inlay, typical of the era, conflates the traditional terminology of a chair “back” with a human back and by doing so recontextualizes other components such as the legs and seat with a human physicality, further blurring the line between figure sculpture and functional form.
