Instrumental in Sutherland design aesthetic from its inception, John Hutton combined contemporary flair with a classical foundation to produce truly original concepts.
His unique perspective was grounded in a commitment to creating for the individual rather than for the market, a philosophy reflected in the unsurpassed quality, elegant simplicity and ultimate comfort so consistent in his work.
The New York Times called Hutton a national treasure, but he was equally appreciated on the international scene because of his contributions to the European furniture market. More than 200 of his pieces won awards and are now represented in prestigious museums around the world. Other work by John Hutton includes designs for textiles, hand-blown glass, lighting and interiors.
