French X-Back Cafe Chair, Black
Michael Thonet (Germany, 1796-1871) patented a process of bending solid and veneered wood under heat to create curved back-rails, legs and scrolled arms for chairs. Beech wood was an obvious choice due to its hardwearing yet workable nature. Today, our chairs are created in one of the last remaining original factories, continuing in the tradition for excellence by using the original techniques and methods.
This original Thonet bentwood chair, originally called the A150, was popularized in cafés throughout Europe in the mid 1800s and have held their popularity for the past century and a half.
