The fanback side chair has an interesting heritage dating back to the 19th century when these vintage styles of chairs were first manufactured by the famous Thonet Chair Company. These chairs were originally designed by Michael Thonet who utilised innovative steam bending technology to create highly attractive and unique looking pieces at mass production prices so the savings could be passed onto buyers. This ability to achieve a chair which looked individual but did not cost a fortune was an incredibly popular notion and still is today!
The steam bending process allows continuous lengths of timber to be shaped accurately into forms that when combined together make strong and aesthetically pleasing chairs. The steam bending process also retains the natural strength of the timber and is far superior to other methods of preparing bent wood forms because of the strength it creates.
The fanback side chair is supplied with polished wooden seat in walnut stain
