Widely known for her authentic and original style, Madeline Stuart rarely creates interiors depicting the latest trends in design. Instead, she focuses on emphasizing the architecture and atmosphere of the place, as well as the characters of people inhabiting it. The result of this unique approach is timeless and harmonious spaces. As it could be expected from when talking about Hollywood-based designers her clientele comes from the very top of society – the entertainment industry, finance, business.

The Hudson armchair is probably one of our most classic design pieces. It tends to be sober thanks to its occasional design, but it really stands out because of its leather upholstery. The body structure is produced in solid walnut wood with metal shoes on its legs, made of polished brass. It has a little degree of reclining, perfect for a zen moment in your living room.
