With the previous Talma Collection by Benjamin Hubert, the designer draped an additional layer over the chairs original construction, creating a dark look with an almost weave-like aesthetic. Hubert has expanded this original collection and started to experiment with different forms of chairs.
The previous design focused primarily on a single-person sofa chair, whereas the new collection has more upright seating that would be suitable for placing around a dining room table rather than in a living room. Because the designer used a draping aesthetic, one can still see the various colors of the original form of the chair underneath, which creates a touch of brightness to an otherwise monotone chair.
Hubert has done a great job with making slight updates to a regular chair design with the Talma Collection.
