Most of us feel right at home in the saddle, but what if you could bring the saddle into your home? British designer Timothy Oulton’s hand-crafted Saddle Chairs ($2,875 per chair) are a modern yet elegant way to bring subtle equestrian style to your living room or apartment.
Straddling the heritage of elegant sporting pursuits such as racing and polo with the rugged world of rodeo, the Buck’dN Brok’n Saddle Chair is characterised by its distinctive, aged appearance. Imbued with the sense of a life fully lived, stories of travel and adventure seem to be captured in every crack and scar in the leather. Craftsmen blend this cracked and damaged look with the leather’s natural softness to create a totally unique, luxurious experience. #homestyle #homedecor #design #interiordesign #furniture #furnituredesign #saddle #timothyoulton
Influenced by polo, racing, and even rodeo, Oulton’s chairs are distressed, lived-in, and endlessly interesting. Oulton himself learned the furniture trade in his family’s antique shop and was inspired by his father’s military service as well as his own affection for British heritage and tradition. Each piece is carefully crafted using simple tools from hand dyed and tanned Brazilian and Argentinan Pampas leather.
The resulting chair speaks for itself, and they’re just as comfortable as they are conversational (and yes, probably even better for sitting than your real saddle). Timothy Oulton Saddle Chairs are available in a variety of leathers and can be purchased at ABC Carpet and Home in New York, New York or at a store near you.
Let’s go for a ride; with the Saddle chair, contoured like a real saddle with stirrups either side, and the Globetrekker coffee table, inspired by an early 20th century trunk that was presented to a young British man named Tom Richards before he set sail for South Africa. Cosy up on the Shabby sectional sofa and dream of where to travel to next… #saddle #design #style #homestyle #homedecor #furniturestore #furnituredesign #interiors #amsterdam #timothyoulton #timothyoulton
