Vintage, 1950’s Thonet molded plywood side chair with covered upholstered seat and back in Turquoise naugahyde. This midcentury modern chair is in good condition with only a slight blemish on the back where it looks like someone drew on the back (see close up photo). This is not really noticable, but might be able to be removed. The chair has been refinished and restored, but still retains character.
In 1830 Michael Thonet began his experiments with what became known as “bentwood” furniture. Shortly after, Thonet and his sons were mass-producing bentwood furniture with unprecedented standards of quality. The name Thonet quickly became synonymous with a high standard of exquisite craftsmanship, and Thonet’s company grew into the most famous and imitated furniture company to date.
