Presenting The Traveling Chair! Together with Eleish Van Breems, purveyors of Swedish home furnishings, we have gathered together our Big Cabana Family designers, artists and creatives to design a one-of-a-kind side chair in support of the Design Leadership Network's Scholarship fund. All proceeds will be donated to the DLF's mission to ensure a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in the fields of architecture and design. These collectible pieces are truly works of art by some of the industry's most respected and talented designers.
Traveling Chair by Rebecca de Ravenel
“I have always had a love affair with raffia, most things straw really, so it felt very natural to wrap this chair in a version of my most loved material. I met a wonderful man in a local market by my home who helped wrap the chair for me. I was immediately drawn to this particular fabric from the Schumacher/Cabana collection, the color combination and print feels very much like the kinds of things in and around my home, a strong synergy of a fresh, old-world, tropical paradise. My talented niece, India, collaborated with me on the hand painting of the chair. We decided to keep the colors and the detail to a minimum to not distract from texture, craftsmanship and the rich print. I designed the chair to sit peacefully in a rather noisy entrance, where dogs and children are usually barking and chasing each other, it is a wonderful compilation of so many things I treasure and admire -- design, color, print, local talent and function.” - Rebecca de Ravenel
