Conover, Luther

(1913 - 1993)

Luther Conover was a self-taught furniture designer and maker who settled in Sausalito after World War II. He initially used war-surplus materials but soon began sourcing his own wood and iron. This chair is from a line of furniture that was made of easy-to-procure materials and employed simple manufacturing techniques. Durable enough for both indoor and outdoor use, the line appealed to consumers furnishing modern homes on modest budgets.
