Don´s imagination had no limits. This particular design dating back to the early 60´s, is in my opinion one of Don´s most overwhelming design achievements: the legendary “Elephant Lounge”.
The “Elephant Lounge” was a limited edition of 5 sets only, produced in solid tropical woods. The set itself includes three very heavy pieces of furniture: 2 gorgeous lounge chairs and an amazing coffee table, a table design I have not seen elsewhere. The unique “elephant” design is obvious, as each front side of the lounge chairs are shaped giving the impression of an elephant head (armrest) with his eye, trunk (legs) and ears on each side (see pictures). Another unique feature: the chairs include the same mechanism as the Sling Swinger chairs, as they are able to move back and forth smoothly (see picture detail). Of course, the typical curved back-rail (signature of the house) is important to notice.
We had the privilege to purchase at the time one of these limited edition “Elephant Lounge” sets, and I am very proud to present some pictures.
