How Vintage French Furniture Inspired Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams

The company’s Fall 2019 Collection melds modern silhouettes with timeless aesthetics

Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams fondly recall that one vintage leather club chair, found decades ago while perusing the flea markets in Paris. It was a true work of art and testament to the timeless luxury of leather. Handsomely worn and relaxed, its padded roll arms and comfortably pitched back offered the perfect proportions for a deeply relaxed sit. More than just a club chair, it seemed to tell a story, warmly engrained with a lifetime of cozy moments.

For the duo behind the eponymous brand, it was love at first sit — and the inspiration for the company’s own leather seating collection, first introduced more than 20 years ago. While leather seating styles have evolved over the years, that timeless aesthetic continues to inspire and is evident in the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Fall 2019 Collection.

Reflective of the brand’s signature style, and 30 years of design and innovation, the welcoming fall collection features a mix of beloved favorites and sleek new silhouettes. Soothing hues and warm textures meld with polished metals and beautifully patinated leathers for a look that’s timeless, yet timely.

This season’s standout: a selection of pieces uniting the brand’s iconic modern style with luxurious Mont Blanc hides from world-renowned leather designer Moore & Giles.

Born of a rich Italian heritage and a tannery with generations of experience, top grain, pure aniline leathers beautifully burnish and develop patina with time. Available in a rich color palette, Mont Blanc leathers are offered in 14 distinct colors.

From chic barrel-back swivels to clean-lined sofas and sectionals, the pieces are handcrafted to last, with a lifetime warranty on frames, springs and cushions. In-stock leather seating styles are shipped from their factory within five days, and custom orders are shipped from the factory within 21 days.
