The modern-comfort style of Los Angeles interior designer Michael Smith
The new nailhead-trimmed Claridge chair ($5,940) perfectly exemplifies the modern-comfort style of Los Angeles interior designer Michael Smith. Upholstered in hand-waxed, vegetable-dyed Austrian leather, it has a reassuring heft. Scrolled arms and the deftly curved back are welcoming but not heavy-handed. The Smith furniture collections are available through Randolph & Hein in New York (212-826-9898) and San Francisco (415-864-3550), and through Oakmont at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles (310-659-1423).
