Time for a nice sit down!
What better chair to bring a smile to any mid century collectors face than this 1958 designed plywood armchair by Norman Cherner. A mid-century icon found in design collections worldwide, the
armchair combines the best of both moulded plywood and solid bent wood construction.

The Cherner Chair is still regarded as one of the most dramatic designs of the 20thC. with graceful, sweeping arms made of solid beech which give this chair strength and beauty. For more information on this, or any of our other mid-century designer furniture in stock please contact
