Art Deco furniture is known for it artful and opulent aesthetic but Christopher Specce's seating opposes this tradition with its modernized design.

The Windsor Settee from home decor retailer MATTER is designed by Specce and is a simplified version of traditional Art Deco furniture. The seater is sculptural and striking without being overly ornate.

Its form and construction are its most eye-catching elements and its hard maple material could be mistaken for solid metal. Measuring 87" in length, 23" in depth and 43" in height, the furniture piece can seat two or more people and is a modern translation of the brand's classic Windsor Chair.

The piece references Art Deco details from the 20s in a subtle way and proves that less is more when it comes to modern design.
