A recipient of the High Point Pinnacle Award in 1998, Irving Sabo has been with Brookbend since its inception. An artist trained in architecture and fine arts, Sabo’s furniture designs for the Brookbend collection embody the perfect fusion of Scandinavian and Mission styles, with a touch of Asian mystique.
As a sculptor Sabo has worked with wood, metals and acrylics. His experience as a boat builder led to patents for steam bending and laminating, inspiring new forms of contemporary furniture. For fifteen years Sabo was Vice President at Ethan Allen. Prior to Ethan Allen he had been the highest paid independent designer in Thomasville’s history. Over 40 years he designed over 200 furniture collections for these two companies. His lifelong concern with organic forms derived from nature is realized in the Brookbend collection.
Sabo’s careful guidance and eye for detail ensures that every piece in the Brookbend furniture line is embellished with a smooth, curvaceous and ergonomic structure making for complete comfort through out the life of the product and not just for the demonstration on the showroom floor.
