Caracole Black Beauty Chair

Sandomenico designed the chair to reflect classic Windsor styling in a modern light. “We absolutely love the combination of materials and that separated it from the other finalists,” the judges said.

Caracole Pop Your Collar
In the Stationary Upholstery category, Christopher Sandomenico’s Pop Your Collar Chair took home the prize. The judges loved the fabric to frame application.

This exceptional chair has a considerable presence. Its tall winged back design is expertly upholstered in a luxurious chocolate plum satin and trimmed in a silhouetted wood frame wearing a Golden Shimmer finish. Of particular note is the extraordinary tailored finger-pleat detail along its inside lumbar. Expertly trimmed with a metal bar finished in Champagne Gold, this elegant detail matches the metal ferrules on its front feet. Inspired by the glamour of the Hollywood Regency era, this signature chair is simply magical, masterfully fresh, and all Caracole refined.

About Caracole

Caracole represents a beautiful turn in a new direction. Caracole creates high-style furniture, filled with personality, and at an exceptional value. Selecting unique materials and designing individual pieces, rather than collections, Caracole disregards the notion that particular pieces must reside in particular rooms. And in the process, distinctive pieces come to life, for every room of the home.
