Eugene Schoen was known primarily as an art deco furniture designer who gained his inspiration after attending the 1925 Paris Exhibition. In 1901, he studied architecture with Otto Wagner and Josef Hoffman in Vienna. His works are part of the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Pennsylvania Museum of Fine Art; each with incurved back with originally designed channeled detailing; flanked by splayed wooden arms; excellent restored condition with new upholstery.

After studying design in New York and Milan, Eggarat Wongcharit returned to his native Thailand and embarked on creating furniture designs of his own. Taking his inspiration from the fluidity of nature, Wongcharit combines Southeast Asian craftsmanship with modern design and technology, creating uniquely styled pieces for the global market. His designs have been awarded the 2006 TIFF (Thailand International Furniture Fair) and the Silpathorn Award for Design from Thailand's Ministry of Culture.
