Unique Art Deco Living Room Set by H.P. Berlage for 't Binnenhuis from The Netherlands ~1900. This set is a typical example of 'Nieuwe Kunst' and Amsterdam School design. This set in model Opus 38 consists of a chair, a chaise longue and a footstool. It is manufactured of mahogany and brass with fabric. The details in the wood are impressive and form a nice contrast with the fabric.

This set was manufactured for one of the first interior stores in The Netherlands; 't Binnenhuis, founded by H.P. Berlage and Jac van den Bosch. The idea was to make furniture and "decoration" of the interior available to ordinary people. Ultimately, the furniture remained accessible mainly to wealthy citizens.

Originally the idea was that 't Binnenhuis was a cooperation of many artists and designers, including Jan Eisenloeffel.

Although the interior design business was run by Jac van den Bosch for almost thirty years, who also drew most of the designs, the store remained above all the brainchild of Berlage. He founded the business and also provided financial support. Well-known customers included the Amsterdam family Fentener van Vlissingen, Anton Philips and Helene Kroller-Muller.

Both pieces are signed with a signature of the designer and a small plaquette of ''t Binnenhuis'. The set is in good condition, however the fabric could use some cleaning and or upon personal preference re-upholstery.

The same set, however without the stool, is part of the collection of the 'Haags Gemeentemuseum', in The Hague The Netherlands and is also pictured in the book 'Rechte stoelen, rechtschapen burgers. Wonen volgens 't Binnenhuis 1900-1929' by Yvonne Brentjens.
