Item Description

Classic Frank Style Sofa by Huniford Design

In a soft cream leather, designed by C&C parent James "Ford" Huniford. Dimensions are 75" L x 38" W x 30" H.

“My designs begin and end with the site—its geography, architecture and artifacts—as well as its shapes, hues and tones.   By referencing the native elements of a place, I build a world that feels whole, real…a home.” 

From his days as a child in upstate New York, Ford has been drawn to the unique strength, shape and scale of American industrial craftsmanship.  Abandoned mills, stone quarries, and rusted farm equipment have influenced his designs as much as the art of Jasper Johns and Ellsworth Kelly.  The pure integrity that informed American industry for generations becomes art in its own right in Ford’s hands. 

A self-taught designer, Ford was selected by Architectural Digest as one of the “Top 100 Designers.”  His work has appeared in the American, Italian and French editions of Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, W, Vogue, the New York Times, and House Beautiful, among others.
