Along came a spider. Unexpected and built to stay that way, our Spider Chair will surprise 21st Century sensibilities by infusing any space it is in with a dose of Georgian propriety, inspired by an original George III armchair as interpreted by Ms. Elkins. As always, Truex presents us with a tantalizing counterpoint to the status quo. Inspired by the original George III chair used by Frances Elkins. Exposed White Oak frame. French natural brass nailheads trim the back and seat. Turned stretchers. Available in Oak finishes.

TruexTruex by Scott Himmel for Karges
In the early 1930’s, a young American from the middle west attended the Paris branch of The Parsons School of Design. He stayed on to become an instructor and ultimately director. His name: Van Day Truex. At the onset of World War II, Truex moved to New York and became president of Parsons, recruiting the greatest interior decorators of the day as both teachers and guest critics. From 1947-1960, New York was the world capital of the decorative arts and at it’s center was The Parsons School and Truex who believed the rooms we live in should be nothing less than a celebration of the lives we lead. It is our mission to bring back the best of this era to contemporary interiors as a special collection within Karges by Hand. The name is in honor of Truex, inspiration comes not solely from Van, but from those he inspired as his era continues to inspire us.
“There’s a difference between existing and living.”-Van Day Truex
