Check out these chairs! The latest addition to the DDR Home collection are bold, beautiful armchairs, hand-crafted right here in the USA.

Our journey in home furnishings has been a winding one over the decades. We won’t get too in the weeds on that right now, but essentially, our production waned significantly when we stopped being able to source quality materials stateside. Then, recently, we had a bit of resurgence when we began refurbishing vintage frames with our own one-of-a-kind fabrics and custom-embroidered leathers that complemented signature jackets and design motifs from our collections. 

Then, we got a call for a collaboration we couldn’t pass up. Originally, we were contacted by his daughter, asking “Hey, would you talk to my dad about collaborating on something? I think it could come together really well.” And she was right. Her dad turned out to be Dan Dickinson, the Vice President and second generation of Paul Robert, a famed furniture design company creating custom quality pieces out of Taylorsville, North Carolina since 1983.

Highly reputable for their quality and craftsmanship, we were immediately intrigued, and the more we learned about Paul Robert and their commitment to their employees, the earth, and being made in America, it was clear we aligned in a lot of ways.

“They understood our aesthetic, they’re wonderful to work with, and we’re over the moon that it’s made here in the U.S.,” said Audrey. “The quality is excellent, we’ve gotten to see and sit in it in person now, and it’s really high quality we can be proud to put our name on. These are lifelong chairs. We will definitely continue this collaboration and expand on it as we move forward, it’s just a really long process – I think we’re currently on a 32-week delivery. For now, we are extremely pleased with the pieces we executed with Paul Robert.”

If you haven’t had a chance to check them out, we currently have four separate one-of-a-kind styles to offer (one comes in two colors) from this creative effort – AND Audrey let us put them on sale for this introductory article! The regal Yoakum Rodeo armchair is a lovely leather on a light wood frame with spiral carved details and an amazing artistic rendering of a Till Goodan-style rodeo scene. The Back in the Saddle Chair (in adobe or black) is an ornate Louis XVI-style frame accented with intricate embroidery of a desert cowboy scene with nailhead trim. The Pecos Chair is an extremely elegant chair with a rich dark wood frame accompanied by two-tone leather upholstery and a printed portrait of a horseback cowboy on a buckin’ bronc. And last, but certainly not least, a personal favorite: the Bick’s Club Chair is a luxe leather armchair, impossibly plush and comfortable, embellished with custom contrast stitching that mimics a classic toebox. (We could LIVE in this chair!)

Which one is your favorite?!

Oh my, Bicks Club Chair had my eye and heart from the get go. Our long gone family business was cabinetry and furniture making from back in the day of hand made everything. When I see certain pieces, I become very nostalgic for what I grew up around. This reminds me of my childhood home and things loved. Well done on this collaboration.

Time to set your sights on this pretty pastel, because a hue dubbed “digital lavender” has been appellated by industry experts as the color of the year.

Well, not really – Billy the Kid and his cronies donned nothing but dirt – but once again, super-stylist Lisa Martensen managed to create a look that was aesthetically pleasing yet felt authentic to the outlaw vibe.
