Ross Didier’s Brydie Lounge Designed to Reflect Change

Ross Didier’s Brydie Lounge Designed to Reflect Change

Australian designer Ross Didier draws inspiration from Brideshead Revisited in the sophisticated Brydie lounge and low tables.

The Brydie lounge is inspired by the continued tensions of heritage battling against contemporary thought that were played out amongst the fashionable elite, as depicted in Brideshead Revisited.

“The Brideshead narrative is set during a time where the last bastion for the extravagant Edwardian period was changing socially, politically and aesthetically,” explains Ross Didier.

This evolution of tradition into the new is embodied by the careful selection of premium grade materials and layering, combined with colour and softer form.

With a wide range of sizing and configuration options, the Brydie lounge is classically tailored and designed to create aesthetic balance with structured upholstery supported on slim, elliptical shaped legs. Customisation of the elliptical legs includes options of polished brass, polished silver, and black or powder coated colours to specification. Fabric or leather coverings can also be specified to choice.

In the Brydie lounge, Didier continues to deliver quality designs that are both Australian made, and Australian designed.
