Conover, Luther

(1913 - 1993)

Luther Conover was a self-taught furniture designer and maker who settled in Sausalito after World War II. He initially used war-surplus materials but soon began sourcing his own wood and iron. This chair is from a line of furniture that was made of easy-to-procure materials and employed simple manufacturing techniques. Durable enough for both indoor and outdoor use, the line appealed to consumers furnishing modern homes on modest budgets.

Bloomberry is an antiques dealer specialized in exquisite twentieth century design, founded in 2005 by Patricia Keurentjes and Leander Meerman. Our strength is that we read the past differently and do have a keen eye for yet little known masterpieces. Our company is housed in a former textile factory that spans 5.000 square meters. It is located just near Maastricht, in the south of the Netherlands, within two hours from Amsterdam, Bruxelles and Cologne. Only part of the collection is shown on the website. A visit -  by appointment only - gives you the full insight.
