Grant Featherston may not have received the same celebrity status as some of his contemporaries, but his designs are just as iconic. And his most famous innovation, the R160 Contour Chair is not truly complete without its partner: the Featherston Ottoman. The STIN.com version is made to the exact specifications of the original, allowing the sitter to enjoy the chair in perfect comfort. The legs are made from ash wood. The chair comes in a choice of several colours including the popular Turqouise blue.
Grant Featherston designed this Ottoman as a partner for his seminal Contour Chair, continuing the theme of natural curves and forms that were adapted to the human shape. Seen as the most iconic design in the history of Australian furniture, the combination of chair and ottoman are as perfect a match today as they were in 1951.
Grant Featherston was born in 1922 in the south Australian state of Victoria. Self-taught, he designed lighting and glass panels before serving in the army from 1940-1944. He returned to Melbourne after the war and in 1951 created the first of his famous Contour Chairs. He opened Featherston Contract Interiors furniture showroom in 1956. His designs received many Good Design Awards and he is represented in the collections of National and State galleries and museums.
