Description

Marilyn Sainty is one of the matriarchs of New Zealand fashion. From humble beginnings she rose to become one of this country’s most revered fashion designers, her designs have been the subject of exhibitions as well as books. Sainty is also known for her highly successful fashion boutique Scotties.

‘I think astute is the perfect word, I was always very influenced by my environment, my emotional state and politics in the broader sense. Also a need to create what was missing: colour, fabrics, shape, a need for simplicity, plus the drive to do something well, never quite achievable! I was always interested in making wearable clothes that had some strength about them, that were exaggerated in some subtle way.’ - From an interview in Lucire Fashion Magazine

In the 1990's Sainty created a number of limited edition furniture designs that included these simple yet chic bar stools. Each stool has a steel frame fitted with a curved native Kauri timber seat. They are comfortable and simple with an elegant restraint that is highly memorable.
