Don´s organic designs were unmatchable by any other furniture designer of his time. When I refer to his organic designs, I am talking about that marvelous prototype I had the opportunity to see, sit and enjoy, which was the base of what we know as the SLING “sloucher“ chair, made in some sort of bone shape disposition.
The “Sling Casuals” line is one of Don´s most classical and successful design lines from the 60′s. The SEÑAL, S.A. catalog page above describes the stylish Sling “sloucher” chairs which were produced only in selected precious tropical woods (zebrawood, cocobolo, granadilla and other local rosewood variants like cueramo), all made with black or brown leather upholstery. The SEÑAL, S.A. shop in Santa Maria de Guido also had a collection of other available leather samples and colors for you to choose from: gray, different shades of brown, beige, etc. to match the Sling “sloucher” chairs to your home décor or personal favorite colors.
To give you a good idea of the different tropical woods and leather upholstery colors Don used at the time I am showing below some Sling “sloucher” chairs from my private collection. Personally I am very fond of the cocobolo and zebrawood models with black leather. They have been in our family for almost 50 years and looking impeccable.
Don also produced these chairs in granadilla tropical wood, very attractive to the eye with brown or beige leather. I just love them!
