The Tub Collection Comprises Chairs, Tables and Chairs on Tables

If you often find an end table next to an armchair, why should the Tub Collection's hybrid leap be so unexpected? The answer is that the structure does not indicate a mere merging of the two complementary pieces, but rather the playful placement of one atop the other.

The four modern movables that make up this eccentric living room set were the result of a creative collaboration called One Third, a program that aimed to bring Australian designers and local manufacturers together. Designs in Timber of Tassie contributed the gorgeous woodwork of the coffee table and the chair substructure in a Tasmanian Oak, offering buyers the alternative of American Ash.

With leather or fabric as the upholstery options, the Tub Collection places comfort on a contemporary pedestal and demonstrates how chairs and side tables might be treated as units.
