Jean-Michel Frank created this armchair out of a doe (female deer) and varnished oak. Although many people would be grossed out by the idea of sitting in this chair essentially upholstered from the skin on a deers back, I can appreciate the beatiful pattern and textured look. This, tied together with the oak makes the armchair very pleasing to the eye.

This oakwood and doe-hide upholstered armchair designed by Jean Michel Frank (b. Paris 1895 – d. NYC and made by Comte, Buenos Aires in the for the Llao Llao Hotel in Patagonia is a perfect balance of austere architectural form and luxurious upholstery.
