Defined by its dependable bentwood construction and simple form, the Era Chair (1859) has been in continuous production for more than 150 years. By making the back of the chair and rear legs from a single piece of curved wood, designer Michael Thonet who perfected the bentwood process for chair-making eliminated the need for expensive and time-consuming hand-carved joints. The resulting chair is graceful, lightweight and surprisingly strong, the latter of which has been continually proven in cafs and restaurants all over the globe. Swiss architect Le Corbusier used the Era Chair in his buildings, stating, This chair, whose millions of representatives are used on the Continent and in the two Americas, possesses nobility. Other fans of this iconic form included Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, both of whom featured this chair in their paintings. As with any natural material, slight variations in the texture and color of the wood are to be expected and are not defects. Made in the Czech Republic. This contract-quality chair is suitable for commercial and residential use.
