ART DECO FURNITURE – WWW.GIBRALTARFURNITURE.COM

A Google™ search indicates that one of the foremost sites for high end  Art Deco furniture  at wholesale prices is Gibraltar. “This West coast Internet pioneer features  Bauhaus, retro, modern, and post-modern furnishings at rock bottom prices. Gibraltar offers an exceptional array of wholesale, architectural, modern, high quality items at factory direct discount prices. Gibraltar Furniture is one of the leaders in the world of Internet modern architectural products. Gibraltar sells furniture manufactured in Italy, Asia, and the USA and all sales are tax free outside of California.” This Beverly Hills 90210 store has been in business for over 50 years!

Art Deco was a popular international design movement from 1925 until 1939, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design, and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film. This movement was, in a sense, an amalgam of many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, Bauhaus, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the United States through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, functional, and modern.

Q: ARE YOUR CLASSIC PRODUCTS COPIES OR ORIGNIALS?

A: We often get the question: “Are your pieces original?”

We sell many items that are fully licensed products from the official sources.

We also feature many lower cost alternatives for customers who are looking for cost effective options

All of our products are “mint in box” brand new items. (Original vintage products would be very expensive products to obtain. A few authentic, old originals are found in museums, or sell at astronomic, (but realistic) prices at auctions or at antique stores. Often times these pieces are often in very bad shape as a result of years of wear and tear.)

Instead Gibraltar offers both authentic and also high quality reproductions, at factory direct prices on all these pieces! Many of these items are “reproductions” of old designs. Our design experts have exactly copied each and every detail and faithfully executed all of the scale, aspects, and lines of these masterpieces.

Careful attention has been given to maintaining the same look, feel, and style of the Bauhaus icons that define modernism. You will be getting a perfectly made modern art piece, crafted in the European tradition, at a price you can’t beat!

We use overseas factories to achieve these results. We use due diligence to insure that all the right tools are used in this process. Despite the designers’ intention to create furniture which can easily be produced mechanically, the creation of modern classics requires considerable skilled hand labor and a wide variety of different production steps. We employ only perfect manufacturing methods in order to bend tubes and to make upholstery that keeps its shape for decades. The results are master pieces that ring true to the originals.

Our overseas factories use optimum methods to reproduce these beautiful Bauhaus and Modern Classics Furniture in a way so you can enjoy them year after year.

To illustrate, we offer the Barcelona series at our store. Mies van der Rohe designed the Lounge Chair and Ottoman for the German Pavilion at the International Exhibition of 1929 in Barcelona, Spain. The “X”-shaped Mies Lounge Chair and Ottoman features sleek minimalist line styling which produces a perfect blend of art and function. Gibraltar’s Mies Lounge Chair and Ottoman is made of heavy gauge solid stainless steel seamlessly welded and polished to a high luster, It features comfortable high density fire-retardant polyurethane foam wrapped in Dacron, enclosed in ticking, and encased in fine imported 100% Italian leather.

Many of the classics have undergone some construction changes since they were designed in the 20’s and 30’s. Today’s materials and tools allow for construction as crisp as the designers envisioned, but could not necessarily achieve due to the state of yesterdays technology. Many problems have occurred in older pieces when metal fatigue has resulted in damaged frames which can no longer be used. Our modern construction technique produces a metal frame with greater strength in its joints. This means your furniture, will be sturdier than the originals.

Our reproductions are very high quality new items designed for daily use. They are not numbered or stamped to justify the tripling of prices. If you purchase an item like this, you are actually paying for a license fee that is no longer required. The manufacture of such pieces is charging you a premium for a royalty that once went to a designer. Now that these designs have been paced into the public domain a patent payment is unnecessary. However, instead of lowering the price points on these editions the fabricators are happy to hold onto your money and pocket the difference. They will not lower their price levels to reflect this change to not offend their previous customers. Instead they are happy to charge thousands of dollars more for the same items that we sell for a fraction of the price.

Our entire pieces feature high quality imported premium heavy gauge steel. Ultra-Premium #304 Solid flat bar stock Stainless Steel pieces are used in each of our units. These are then hand polished to a super brilliant chrome style finish. Our frames are NOT made using lower cost carbon steel, which may be chrome-plated hollow tubes and then bolted/screwed together. Over the years this chrome will start to peel and corrode leaving you with an ugly unit.

All of our reproductions are made using 100% imported Italian leather. Multiple colors and grades of premium top grain Italian leather are available for your design requirements. We sources our hides from the same supplier that provides leather for Mercedes Benz and BMW automobiles Every square of leather is hand selected, piped, tufted and individually sewn by expert leather craftsmen Each piece is true to form, comfortable, and feature a luxurious cushion system.

Naturally there is a range in quality of the reproductions on the market. Be assured Gibraltar are tops in quality in every possible way! Today classic furniture is produced by many different manufacturers, some with great care and attention to details, others with less care. Many lower cost releases will compromise quality by using vinyl, pig leather, or low cost Chinese inferior hides.

Copy or original? We call the items what they truly are: “reproductions” of old design, no matter who produces them today. Our items do live up to all modern expectations on appearance and durability, even under intense scrutiny. They are all New Reproductions of Modern Classics at a price that can’t be beat!

Q: WHERE ARE YOUR REPRODUCTIONS MADE?

A: We sell these products from two main sources.

1. Italian leather, Italian stainless Steel, European construction. We source these models from Italy viaGordon International. We use 100% Italian Leather and 100% stainless steel frames.

It takes 15-20 hours to pay these chairs. Labor in Europe is about $30 per hour. This makes the total cost higher. However, we mark down all of these models and the price that you will pay will be 30% off of the list price. We deep discount all of these models as we are a factory direct internet wholesaler.

2. Italian leather, Italian stainless Steel, Non-European construction. We source these models from our own overseas factory. We use 100% Italian leather and 100% stainless steel frames. As overseas labor is less expensive than European workmen the total price goes down accordingly. It takes 15-20 hours to pay these chairs. Non-European labor is about $3 per hour. This makes the total cost lower. We deep discount all of these models as we are a factory direct internet wholesaler.

The quality is virtually the same, the materials are the same, and the end product is the same. Therefore the choice is yours.

Q: WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND DWR?

A: Our products are similar in design, construction, scale, and materials used in the higher priced DWR versions. The main difference between us and DWR is that they charge full list price for everything that they offer. Conversely, we deep discount all of our products.

Therefore the major difference is the amount of money that you will be saving by selecting our items vs. the DWR editions. Plus on our classic chrome items we offer a complimentary upgrade on our frames that DWR will charge you an arm and leg for.

For instance, on the Knoll Barcelona releases DWR offers the standard frame model. This means that you will be getting black pig iron that is dipped in chrome. Both Cassina and Knoll offer an upgraded stainless steel version. However the up charge for such will be significantly more.

We think our customers deserve a higher grade of product than this. Therefore we require our factories to use stainless steel frames that are buffed to a highly polished finish instead. For instance we use imported, heavy gage, all stainless steel, highly polished 12 MM frames on all of our Barcelona pieces.

This costs us far more, but the result is well worth this extra effort. The end product lasts a lifetime and is very durable. In comparison DWR regular chrome plated products will start to shed and peel over the years. Plus oxidation will occur on a chrome piece whereas highly polished stainless steel is impervious to rust, oxidation, and metal corrosion.

In addition we only use 100% imported Italian leather for each and every product we manufacture. This premium full leather material is the finest that money can buy!

With DWR, Herman Miller, and Knoll you are also paying extra for the use of licensed products. This adds greatly to the price of each piece. Many of the designs that DWR, Herman Miller and Knoll sell are now in the public domain for classic Bauhaus models. In the past manufactures had to pay an extra fee for the use of these designs and the artist was paid a fee for each product that was produced. However most of these products no longer require such. But companies such as Knoll and Herman Miller did not lower their prices to reflect this change.

Instead they just pocket the sum they once paid to the architect. Rather than decreasing the prices to reflect the lower production costs for these items the manufactures have decided to raise them. The only ones that are being fooled by this is the un-informed public. DWR prices are costlier than ours in that you have to pay for all of their stores, advertising, marketing, and promotional costs. Also DWR charges taxes in all the states that they have stores in. We use the direct to the consumer model instead. Consequently you will be getting the factory direct, wholesale price, instead of the top dollar retail price that DWR offers.

Q: HOW DO YOUR REPRODUCTIONS COMPARE TO HERMAN MILLER AND KNOLL PRODUCTS?

A: We sell both factory authorized originals and reproductions at a lower price point. Either way you will end up saving money when you purchase from us as we are an internet deep discounter.

Many people ask us if our products are re-productions or Herman Miller or Knoll originals. Herman Miller, Knoll, and Gibraltar Furniture all sell re-production pieces as the originals are very valuable art pieces and reside in museums or private collections. Plus if you purchased an original edition you may not want to use such for every day use as this would be very risky practice. Therefore Herman Miller, Knoll, and Gibraltar Furniture all sell reproductions of the original design. Herman Miller and Knoll charge you more for this privilege. Gibraltar feels that the wise customer wants value, design, and purity. Therefore we charge you less for the same piece!

Many of our pieces are 100% accurate reproductions of the Knoll and Herman Miller classics. We have faithfully duplicated all of the design elements including the original dimensions, style, form, and exact materials at a fraction of the price.

For instance, all of our cushions are a perfect combination of seating softness, comfort, and linearity which insures crisp design lines. No short cuts are taken and the leather sources we use are the best in the world!

We use the Internet as our showroom in that we are a factory direct wholesale source. In a word we a comparable to Amazon.com re: our factory direct pricing.

However your purchase is risk free. We offer a hassle free, no questions asked, 7 day return policy. Your purchase is also fully guaranteed by both Lloyds of London and the Yahoo buyer’s protection plan.

Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret in Switzerland in 1887. He was a tireless proselytizer, addressing the public in his own magazine, exhibitions he designed and pamphlets he wrote. Dressed like a bureaucrat with his horn-rimmed glasses and dark suits, Le Corbusier was truly an artist, performing numerous paintings and sculptures. His greatest work includes the design of the city of Chandigar in India. This precise high quality reproduction of the original was designed for the 1929 Salon d’Automne.

This exclusive classic masterpiece is made out of 100% Italian leather! The Le Corbusier Grande Comfort series was originally designed for the 1929 Salon d’Automne. Following the example of the LC1 Sling Chair, the LC2 Petite series reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames externalized. It is a modern classic.

The specs for this chair are 39″W x 29″D x 27″H; SH: 15″. All cushions are made of multi-density foam for plush comfort and firm support. Thick, resilient foam pillows rest on top of the frame and provide the kind of sumptuousness comfort found only  in the finest overstuffed conventional chairs. The leather is hand-selected, expertly sewn and piped. All lines are clean, straight, and precise. This piece boasts incredible quality, style and comfort at an unbelievable price. Matching sofa and loveseat are available, too.

All of our Le Corbusier classics are made of 100% Italian leather, manufactured in Italy, by the Mastrotto Group. Based in Arzignano (Vicenza, Italy), the Mastrotto Group is the gold standard for world wide hide production and one of the most important global sources for the creation of upholstery, furniture, and leather goods. They are the exclusive source for all of the leather used in Mercedes Benz and BMW automobiles.

We can produce this chair in Black, Bright White, Camel, Chocolate, Ivory, Black, Red, Saddle Tan. Bordeaux, Cognac, Cappuccino, Golden Tan, Hunter Green, Navy Blue, Parchment, Tangerine, Wasabi, Cranberry, Toffee, or Whiskey in your choice of three different leather grades including Deluxe, Primo, and Exquisite.

Deluxe is our highly durable Top Grain Leather that is grain-corrected and color pigmented. The grain surface is slightly abraded to remove imperfections before a protective surface coating is applied. A decorative leather-grain pattern is then embossed into the surface for a finished look.

Primo is a top grain Semi-Aniline Leather that has just a small amount of pigment or clear finish added to its surface, thus allowing the natural unique characteristics of the hide to still show through while offering some of the benefits of color consistency and increased durability.

Exquisite is the softest and most expensive leather. This Full-Aniline Leather is left in its most natural/naked state after the aniline-dye process. The leathers reveal different grain patterns, healed scars, and other natural markings. Dyes are absorbed differently between each hide so there may be tonality differences in each piece of leather. Full Aniline means that it is UNPROTECTED with no pigments or top coatings sprayed on after the aniline-dye process, which keeps the leather in the most natural and soft state possible.

This top grain leather is aniline dyed and turned in drums to soften it. Then, a finish coat is added to protect the hide against stains and fading. Our top grain leather has a fine and supple hand. We feel that it is an excellent combination of softness, durability, consistency of color, resistance to sunlight, and ease of maintenance.

We ship factory direct so that you don’t have to pay a middle man for a mark up. This means you get the wholesale price and a great product at unbeatable prices! We can produce this piece in a rainbow of ultra high quality leather colors, or your choice of COM (customers own material) or COL (customers own leather).

 	The Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair

The Lounge Chair Wood (LCW) (also known as Low Chair Wood or Eames Plywood Lounge Chair) was designed by one of the most influential design teams of the Twentieth Century. This chair is considered a breakthrough in seating technology.

The LCW continues to be an icon of Modern Design style. The superb molded ply chair was hailed by Time Magazine as the Best Design of the 20th Century. Along with the Lounge Chair and Ottoman in leather, this may be one of the most recognized pieces in modern design history. Low-slung, with an expertly crafted molded plywood seat and back, this chair is extremely comfortable and built for longevity.

The piece was designed using technology for molding plywood that was developed prior to, and during, The Second World War. Previous to the American involvement the designers entered a line of furniture into the Museum of Modern Art’s “Organic Furniture Competition” in 1940. The competition was set up to explore the natural evolution of furniture in response to the rapidly changing world. This entry was chosen as the winner of the competition. However, production of the initially designed chairs was postponed due to production difficulties, and then by the United States entry into WWII.

Initially the idea was to find a solution to providing affordable, comfortable furniture that could be easily mass produced. His entries into the Organic Furniture competition were designed to have the seat and backrest joined in a singe ‘shell’. The plywood, however, was prone to cracking when bent into the sharp angles and had to be covered with upholstery. Through extensive trial and error a alternate solution was found: create two separate pieces for the seat and backrest, joined by a plywood lumbar support, with plywood legs.

The result was a comfortable chair with a sleek and modern appearance. The seat was joined to the lumbar support and legs with a series of four heavy rubber washers with nuts embedded in them (later these came to be called ‘shock mounts’). The shock mounts were glued to the underside of the seat, and screwed in through the bottom of the chair. The backrest was also attached using shock mounts. The rubber mounts were pliable, allowing the backrest to flex when the chair is occupied.

The Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair (1946) has been referred to as the

This was one of the first examples of a chair with a responsive backrest. Gibraltar Furniture offers this unlicensed reproduction for only $295! We can delivery to you your choice of White Oak, Walnut, Ebony, or Red finish. Pony Cowhide finish available on Ebony or Walnut for just $130 more.

Seat Height: 14.5″

Charles Eames was born in 1907 in Saint Louis, Missouri and briefly studied architecture at Washington University in St. Louis on an architectural scholarship. He proposed studying Frank Lloyd Wright to his professors, and when he would not cease his interest in modern architects, he was dismissed from the university. In the report describing why he was dismissed from the university, a professor wrote the comment, “His views were too modern.”
