chair pistachio



Pistachio is an English word meaning ‘a pale green colour’

Pistache is a chair from the sixties and is made from teak wood. After the war, furniture became less functional and there was more room for variation and warmth inspired by the use of organic forms inspired by new techniques and materials. Scandinavia had a lot of influence on the development of furniture in the Netherlands. The front of the chair has been upholstered with a new fabric Georges Le Manach ‘APIS’ from Pierre Freyand on the back a new pink velvet Operafabric from Pierre Frey has been used. An embroidered strip with flowers from a suzani fabric has been attached to the front of the chair. Suzanis are embroidered pieces of cloth made in the region of Central Asia. They are an important part of a girl’s dowry. Most people believe that flower motives are symbols of fertility and prosperity.
