Ochre’s new Sable Chair is a crowd-pleaser. With its elegant proportions and slim metal frame clad head to toe in leather (the kind that gets better with age), this is the chair that will always let you squeeze in just one more with effortless style.

Above: A group of Sable Chairs gathered around the Whippet Table. “An elegant dining table needs elegant chairs,” says Harriet Maxwell Macdonald, a founding partner of Ochre, which has shops in London and New York City. “We wanted to create a discreet dining chair to match the delicately proportioned legs of our Whippet Table.”

Above: The metal-frame chairs are wrapped in hand-dyed Italian saddle leather and have hand-sewn seams and scalloped corners.

Above: The chairs are available in seven colors, which range, says Maxwell Macdonald, from “natural rich browns and distant gray to a glamorous chili red.” Beet is shown here.

Above: The corner detail of the Whippet Table shows how its fumed limed-oak top is inset into delicate metal legs. “The final result has a touch of ballet about it,” says Maxwell Macdonald. Contact Ochre for pricing information on the Sable Chair and Whippet Table.
