Chic chairs from R & A Augousti

Husband and wife team, Ria and Yiouri Augousti, are masters of creating beautiful furniture using unconventional materials.

Their dream of building a collection of furniture and home accessories began thirty years ago and was inspired by various cultures, arts and architecture encountered on their extensive travels.

Now, with showrooms in Paris’ fashionable 7th Arrondissement and – more recently – in New York City, they are a truly successful team with a furniture range sought after by many high profile clients.

This large, box shaped pair of armchairs epitomises how they create simple designs that look wonderfully contemporary but can be successfully combined with many different styles of decor and will really stand the test of time.

The frame – on tubular steel supports – is covered in squares of parchment and perfectly complements the white leather of the cushions giving an overall effect of understated chic.

The high level of craftsmanship and superior materials used to construct these chairs is clearly evident upon inspection and – as would be expected from R & A Augousti – they are supremely comfortable.
