    Jeremy Adamson, The Furniture of Sam Maloof, exh. cat., Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington D.C., 2001, p. 98 and 109, fig. 130, for a period illustration of this model in the Maloof master bedroom

  • Catalogue Essay

    Maloof exhibited a prototype spindled "Hornback" chair with sloping arms in January 1960 at "California Design 6," an annual exhibition at the Pasadena Art Museum, now the Norton Simon Museum. The present chairs, handmade by Maloof in his Alta Loma workshop, differ from the prototype in their construction: arms meet stiles at right angles, a slight but subtle distinction which lengthens the back’s profile.
