Àdùnní (meaning 'daughter of the sweet one' in Yoruba), is a celebration of African Modernism and to compliment the outlook and celebrate this Art piece. Our cultural excellence aligned with the works of the multi-talented, miss Kedike @chidinmaekile who was our muse for the shoot.
This piece of Art is proudly Nigerian hence why the chair's frame is made from Nigerian teak wood and is upholstered in two styles of the indigenous Yoruba textile Asò-oké. The front bears Asò-oké Gboro-gidi (solid) and behind Asò-oké Onja-wú ati iho (perforated), both hand-loomed in Nigeria.
Our 'line chair' design is influenced by the post-war modern movement. This was a period between 1935 till 1975. It was known as the “Golden age” of design, in which advancements in technology, materials, and society helped shape a period of ‘innovation’ and ‘advancement’ in architecture, art and design that was synonymous with the prosperity and inherent optimism of this.
They are made from local treated teak and mahogany woods. The chairs can be finished in a variety of colours to suit your personal taste. The cushion fabrics are made from variety of locally sourced Asò Oké and Adiré cottons that can be easily changed or dry-cleaned.
The chair works well in any open living space or lounge space to create a relaxing atmosphere
Our 'reading chair' is influenced by the 'Victorian arm chair', this was a period from 1847 till 1901 and was considered a period of peace, prosperity, refined sensibilities and grand excess or ornamentation.
The colourful assorted, authentic and durable Asò Oké fabrics give the feel of palatial prestige that is well deserved along with all round comfort. They are beautiful pieces of functional armchair with quality down-wrapped cushions that create a softer look and feel. They possess highly dense seating and worth your value for money.
