Vienna Side Chair

It’s pretty amazing that Thonet’s first bentwood chair was designed in 1859, especially considering how popular it still is. Plus, this particular chair is very affordable at $120, and you can rest easy knowing it’s produced in one of the original Thonet bentwood chair factories.

Oh, dear Bertjan Pot, how he never ceases to amaze and wonder. The Random Light, the Carbon Chair, the Lazy Bastard. So much goodness. And now the Dazzle stacking chair, apparently named in reference to the Dazzle painting used on ships extensively during World War I.

Table Bench Chair Series

It’s three in one. Sam Hecht got the idea of combining several seating options while he was traveling on the Tokyo subway. A communal bench was the starting point, and lucky for us, this Table Bench Chair series is where he ended up. Traditional bent birch frames and solid oak slabs makes each piece seem worlds away from the commercial plastic benches we’re all familiar with, yet both might share the experience of slight discomfort if sat upon for long periods of time.

Chair: $1,760.00

Windsor Chair by Chris Specce

A modern (yet quaint?) take on the traditional Windsor chair. The powder blue and black matte finish makes the chair seem even less related to the original design.

This chair is a modern interpretation of the traditional Windsor chair. Like the original, it is made using classic three wood construction. Although the form has been streamlined and paired down in a nod to minimalism, the chair retains the solid charm of its ancestor. Custom colors are available for projects.

Powder coated steel frame married to a pressed beech plywood seat and back.
Steel frame available in grey white, jet black, mint turquoise, telemagenta, melon yellow or yellow green.

Glare Chair

Zzzzz! If I could wolf-whistle, I would. Talk about sleek and sexy, this chair’s got it in spades*.

Another one from the mind of Filipe Alarcão. The glare chair with is aerodynamic design comes to life in a shiny high gloss white finish bringing the latest trend in glossy pieces to a new level. This chair has a profile appealing enough to stand alone as a design accent but also fits beautifully in sets populating the modern dining room.

Dimensions: H21/18 x W18/16 x D16 in (H80/44,5 x W46,5/40 x D40 cm)

*Too bad the price turns me off… why so high? It’s the eternal question.

Family Chairs by Lina Nordqvist

Ah, how great are these chairs by Lina Nordqvist? Each one has a slightly different back and leg spindle design, yet they all form a family around a table. Very fitting for a dining room, don’t you think?

Inspired by objects that possess individuality, something beyond function, the designer transformed something well-known and traditional into something unexpected. A fresh interpretation of Swedish stick-back chairs, each of these four chairs features a slightly different yet complementary design on the back and on the spindles between the legs. Together they form a family, each displaying a distinctive character around the table. Versatile and practical, they can also be used throughout the home or office.

Made of lacquered birch wood. Wipe with a damp cloth.
Size: 34.5h x 15.75w x 15.75″d; Seat: 17″h
