Thonet Bentwood Chairs
I’m a huge fan of Thonet’s Bentwood chairs. I’ve searched high and low for antique versions or a good reproduction. Usually, I find one or even two but hardly ever a set. My prayers have been answered via remodelista. A source that carries all my Thonet desires. Including that amazing bench above.
“ Bauhaus2YourHouse presents licensed designs of Thonet, as manufactured by original European Thonet factories in Radomsko Poland, and Brno, Czech Republic, using historic molds and techniques. Remarkably few changes have been necessary over the last 150 years. The factories still follow the 18th century production methods developed by Michael Thonet to produce historically accurate, handsome, and sturdy bentwood chairs, stools, tables, and accessories. Cane seats are hand-tied, and wood laths steamed and bent into curved jigs then dried, sanded, and finally stained and varnished before being assembled.”
A few of the chairs are available in a range of stain colors. (Check out Abbey’s blog for a red set to inspire.) I am personally in love with the little number at the bottom in the middle. The Thonet Cafe Daum Side Chair is curvy and different. So cute! Find out more: bauhaus2yourhouse.com.
