We just brought in this piece into the store today and it really is a gem. Made essentially of four wood pieces and a length of cord, the simplicity is evident in its light weight visuals. It almost looks more like a musical instrument than a piece of furniture.
Originally designed in 1953 by Canadian designer Jacques Guillon, the Cord Chair has been out of production for over 40 years. Re-issued by Avenue Road out of Toronto the chair is available in Walnut Veneer or Black Lacquer with a 8-strand braided cord seat and back.
