Set of Four Dining Chairs with Poplar Wood and Rush Seats, Europe ca 1950s

$ 3,135
  • Description
    This charming set of stylish dining chairs was born from a desire to create an aesthetic that was organic and cosy in its simplicity while not compromising on comfort and functionality.

    This set of four stands as evidence why many European architects succeeded at the craft of furniture design: the precision of the structures and the rush weaving is evident at first glance, showing great geometric order. Driven by function, the designer’s focus was evidently on practicality, structural stability, and a design in favour of these principles. This set’s aesthetic is defined by the thick wooden lines and the minimal structures framing the woven rush seats. The backrests showcase the only strictly ornamental details, the carved spheres decorating the backs. Albeit small, this detail adds a lot to the overall visual balance of the design as it counters the dominating straight lines.

    Defined by clean, smooth lines, and excellent joinery, each of these dining chairs was created by skilled craftsmen who made sure they are durable, sturdy, and functional, while their expertise and use of high-quality wood and rush make each piece stand out on its own as well.

    In good vintage condition. Wear consistent with age and use. Some small marks and scratches on the wood.
