Stewed, screwed and tattooed

Ted Nemeth discovered his love and talent for leather furniture when resorting an old motorcycle seat. He expanded into custom leather furniture, bags and accessories. His style is deeply rooted in the chopper Hotrod culture of the 50s and 60s. Totally unique and beautiful creations with a bad attitude. Ted has mastered the fine art of hand tooling leather.
I came across Ted’s work a year ago, and just had to get my hands on some of his works of art. When I first contacted him, it was an instant connection and understanding on how we would work together.
Christina Aguilera is a client, and Nemeth recently completed pieces for the new nightclub at the Las Vegas Hard Rock and is currently working on a bar owned in part by Tommy Lee.
Here are some of his incredible pieces, and the custom designed piece for Burlesque aptly named “The Dubai Chair”.
Notice the distorted proportion of the chair frame, the stingray skin “Fleur-de-lis” on the back, the butter soft embroidered leather, the authentic pirate jewelry hanging from the sides and back of the chair, and to top it all off, the patent leather corseted back legs of the chair with feathers peeping through!

  1. outrageous pieces to say the least :) but then again that is the whole point, isn't it?
    They are more like paintings that need a special space to show them off.

  2. You really have to see them in person. The attention to detail is amazing.
