one of the really great things about thonet bentwood chairs is how well they adapt themselves to a lot of different looks. they can go classically traditional, or you can mismatch them and get a little funky. pair them with a very modern table, and they create an interesting juxtaposition of old + new. paint them a bold color (or black or white) and they look good, too. heck, you can simply place one next to a bed, stack a few books and a small desk lamp and a thonet comes through as the perfect nightstand. the bentwood chair is the hardest working little chair around, and i keep seeing more and more of them. perhaps because they are such little multi-taskers!

  1. Any of these light filled rooms with any of these delightful chairs. They are so friendly and approachable – and actually look as if they are having conversations! I own a very old one, probably almost a century, and currently he (yes, I think of him as a he) is covered up with clothes in the corner of the bedroom. He needs to come out and be loved.

  2. I don’t think I’ll ever not love bentwood chairs with a Saarinen table – it’s just one of those made-to-be design moments! The curve of the wood, the curve of the table base, and the white and brown is so pleasing!

  3. I’m super intrigued by that big sign hanging on the wall in the first photo….do you know what it says?
