Old Parkland


SCROLL DOWN

Old Parkland


The Debate Chamber in historic Old Parkland commands a superior level of authority and impeccable craftsmanship. 
It is no surprise therefore that Dalgliesh Gilpin Paxton Architects of Charlottesville, VA collaborated with Larru Leathers to design the custom leather desk insets and coasters for this historic chamber.

Beautifully constructed in Baltic Blue cowhide, the desk top leather was hand tooled with gold and blind borders, gold corner stamps and iconic owl medallion. Then inset on the curving rift sawn white oak tables that encircle the debate chamber.

Suminagashi


Suminagashi


Originating in the 12th Century, Suminagashi, a marbleizing technique, was perfected by Japanese masters before being adopted by the Europeans. A decorative artform, marbled designs are often seen translated on paper, fabric or book covers.  Larru Leathers has brought the technique back into focus where customized color palettes transform the leather creating a dynamic, modern interpretation.

The centuries old Suminagashi technique was used in the creation of three leather covers produced in different tonal colors that represent menus for dinner, lunch and brunch.  This decorative artform is absorbed into the leather delivering a durable surface that will withstand years of use, and is low maintenance. If you look closely you will see that each has a grape cluster tooled in gold on the front cover representing the brand.
