Herman Miller

Alexander Girard (1907-1993)
“Art is only art when it is synonymous with living”. Alexander Girard
Alexander Girard”s playful patterns and bright colors were a breath of fresh air into the otherwise stodgy and often colorless domestic world of post-war America.
Born in New York City and raised in Florence, Sandro Girard had, in the words of Hugh De Pree, impeccable taste and incredible astuteness about space, color, and pattern. Nowhere is this more evident than in the fabrics Girard designed for Herman Miller in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
Drawing inspiration from folk art Girard”s personal collection reached some 100,000 items he brought a dimension of taste and color to his work with Herman Miller and their other design leaders, George Nelson and Charles Eames.
His wooden dolls and furniture collections are highly collectable around the world and make perfect gifts. Vitra and Knoll both manufacture his iconic designs to his original, exacting specifications.

A pair of vintage Alexander Girard armchairs. The chairs are upholstered in a naugahyde vinyl in two different colorways, olive and white and the second being, slate gray and white. The subtle color tones allow for these armchairs to be great accent pieces for any home or office. Also available is a matching Girard Chair in an olive fabric here and a Herman Miller La Fonda Marble Table here as shown in the last image.
