Bauhaus classics club chairs
Our modern classic club chairs are made in Europe to the highest standards.
The Wassily club chair is a modern icon designed by Bauhaus furniture designer, Marcel Breuer, and is made and chrome plated tubular steel. This reproduction that includes seat, arms, and back in various colors of belting leather or heavy canvas is among our favorites in Bauhaus furniture and a great option in our classic club chairs collection. Another comfortable club chair in our line of classic club chairs is by modern furniture pioneer Jean Michel Frank who conceived the classic angular design to be adaptable to any interior design scheme. First made in the 1920s, it remains a classic upholstered piece today. A solid hardwood frame with expanded high-density foam & goose down is covered in your choice of leather or fabric. The Barcelona club chair reproduction is one of the most durable and iconic modern classics, and was originally designed by Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich for the 1929 International Exposition held in Barcelona, Spain. It has a sturdy yet elegant chrome plated steel frame with tufted leather cushions and belting leather strap cushion supports. The leather is available in many colors. The Le Corbusier camp chair is a classic and iconic reproduction piece, the original version designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier in collaboration with Charlotte and Pierre Jeanneret. It was initially presented to the public in 1929 at the “Salon d’Automme” in Paris along with other items from his collection.
The armchair with its adjustable tilting back is made with a rigorously cubic tubular steel structure and was thought to be “exotic” at the time for the choice of upholstery used for the seat, back and armrests. The Le Corbusier camp chair to this day, remains among one of the most visually recognized classic club chairs in furniture designs of that period. It has a chrome plated steel frame, with seat and back available in various colors of belting leather or cowhide fur (brown, black and white). Le Corbusier designed the Petit Comfort club chair in 1928 in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret. The cage like external supporting structure of the Petit chair is made of of steel tubing, containing the essential parts of the club chair, seat, back and armrests. The Le Corbusier Petit Comfort club chair version also has a matching loveseat and three seat sofa in the series. The steel tubing frame comes in either polished chrome plated steel or with a matte black enamel finish. The foam core cushions with down wrapped and available in various colors of leather or fabric.
