Karl Springer, famed designer and manufacturer of mid-century luxury furniture and accessories, left an indelible mark on the world of home furnishings throughout the course of his storied career. Mr. Springer worked with novel materials such as shagreen, lacquered parchment, inlaid-wood veneers, rare woods, metals, faux finishes and granite, translating them into pure, classical shapes in his custom-made furniture, light fixtures and Venetian-glass objects. His signature styles were classical Chinese and Art Deco, the latter inspired by his predecessors Ruhlmann and Jean-Michel Frank. His business flourished after the Duchess of Windsor came across his designs and praised them to her many acquaintances, including us here at Chairish. When the Duchess calls we listen! Please take a look below at our ever expanding offering of vintage furntiure by the master Karl Springer.
