The Kimono Chaise and Hakama Chair & Ottoman

July 8, 2009

Kimono New York, a company located in New York City’s garment district, that is dedicated to promoting the use of kimono and obi fabrics for fine furnishings and décor, have worked with designer William Gordon and manufacturer Walter P. Sauer to create the Kimono Chaise and Hakama Chair & ottoman.

The chaise, chair and ottoman combine contemporary forms with traditional Japanese kimono fabric made from Nishijin silk obi. The Nishijin weaving style utilises variously dyed yarns which are woven to create complex patterns. This complicated technique, despite being both time-consuming and labor intensive, is indispensable for creating those elaborate and ornate designs required for kimono fabrics.
