Set of Four Belgian Brutalist Oak Dining Chairs, Belgium 1970s

$ 2,826
  • Description
    Thanks to low-profile, clean-lined furnishings; an earth-tone-inspired colour palette; and little ornamentation, the minimal brutalist design style resonates with many. This organic set exudes tranquillity through its stylish but understated shapes and forms.

    There is a reason behind solid wooden furniture’s enduring popularity: wood never goes out of style, it is enduring, sturdy, versatile, and therefore visually appealing. The development of design in Belgium is very typical for that in Europe generally, thus a branch of the European design tree with shared characteristics of the era’s Scandinavian and even French design. This set of four dining chairs is an evidence of the country’s long furniture manufacturing tradition. The dualism within these chairs is amazing: the pieces of this set can stand in an interior and have a function but also play a purely aesthetic role. The oak bodies’ proportions are very harmonious, with long, sleek backs and braced legs. The only element that serves a purely decorative role are the round ears on the top. The seats are very carefully carved to accommodate the sitter, while the high backs provide ample support for the back.

    From architectural descriptions to individual pieces of furniture, materials, and colour palettes, brutalist style seems to have earned a permanent spot on the décor trend list. Similarly, wood has never gone out of style, and pieces combining the style and the material are only gaining popularity today. These solid oak Belgian chairs are equally striking standing alone, or as a set in an interior with a medley of styles.
