|Interior by Jean-Michel Frank|
Jean-Michel Frank was an influential French interior designer in the 1920s and '30s. He designed minimalist interiors with plain-lined yet luxurious furniture. His elegant Confortable armchair and sofa were some of the most admired pieces of furniture of the 20th century. His work inspired, and continues to inspire, modern designers around the world.
After launching Hermès Maison in Paris, the new home division of Hermès, and displaying Pavillon Hermès in Milan during the recent Design Week, Hermès is launching its new home division in the US this month. They are reintroducing Jean-Michel Frank's Confortable armchair and sofa (designed with Hermès in 1924), and several of his other designs.

The Confortable line of club chairs, originally skinned in leather, is offered in velvet bull calf, smooth calfskin, and goatskin. They are a prime example of Jean-Michel Frank's rectilinear designs, as well as his use of unexpected materials. They are, as all of his work, a model of understated luxury.
