ADNET LEATHER BOOKCASE

Brass frame, patinated bronze decor.
Leather wrapping with Hermès style saddle-stitching.
His exhibition at the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes was a great success. Distinctly avant garde, Adnet was among the first to integrate metal and glass with the structure and decoration of furniture.
Saddle Stitching is a hand stitching technique commonly used among saddle makers.
It is not only used for saddle making, but also for handmade leather goods and luxury leather-covered furniture.
Hermès, the high-end French luxury goods manufacturer, is one of the only well-known brands to still employ the technique.
