Mid-Century Skate Furniture

Etnies Footwear founder Pierre-André Senizergues and design partner Gil Delapointe had already made an entirely skateable house -- now they needed to furnish it. The Skate Study House collection originated when Delapointe was inspecting the headrest of an Eames chair. The bent plies of the modern masterpiece reminded him of the contours of a skateboard. "I started digging in those iconic mid-century designs on chairs, sofas and tables and created 12 pieces of furniture which included decks or wheels," says Delapointe. "Pierre was looking for something related to skateboarding for his living space and I always wanted to recreate the slick style of those 'modern times' and it's all about California lifestyle."
