About us

silla was born out of a passion for beautiful objects: special pieces with aesthetic and historical significance. In 2009, after years of collecting, Andrew Silla and his wife Grace began to work privately with clients from their residence in Southern Maryland. Quickly outgrowing the space, the business was moved from Maryland to Pennsylvania in 2012 and after several warehouse location changes it was firmly settled in the present brick-and-mortar location in downtown Shippensburg.

The 9000 square foot brick-and-mortar gallery is home to a large collection of works of art and estate jewelry. We specialize in sculpture circa 1860 through 1930 with a particular emphasis on the Animaliers and as such the gallery always has a very large collection of exceptional European and American sculpture available on display.

Designed in 1954-56, probably for Hans Kaufeld or possibly for De Sede (unmarked) | Of remarkable quality | one other matching example may be available
Item # 209PWV27A-1 

An incredibly sleek and carefully conceived chair, the RH-302 by Robert Haussmann features a solid chromed steel flat-bar frame with thoughtfully machined joinery that is designed to hold each of the individual upholstered cushions in place simply by using light pressure between each of the elements. All cushions are gently squeezed together to create the structure of the seat, but at the same time they are easily removed. A very clever design. The chair features the solid wooden base (as opposed to the wooden frame with strapping on other variations) and the thin blackened steel apron. Unusually comfortable and positively gorgeous, the chair remains in excellent overall condition.

Note, we may still have the pair to this chair available for purchase in our inventory. Please contact us or browse our current stock for availability.

Measurements: 30" H x 32" D x 34" W; 19" H to seat

Condition Report: Very good original condition; upholstery remains clean and a very nice presentation with no notable blemishes other than some all-over light fading from sunlight; chrome is in excellent condition with only minor scuffs and no observed pitting; incredibly comfortable and of a very high quality throughout.
