I can’t think of anything quite as awesome as a chair by Steelcase… UNLESS there is a PAIR of them!! This is a fabulous pair of Steelcase Model 451 chairs made in the style of the Charles Pollock office chair for Knoll. Comprised of molded plastic bucket style seats, five prong chrome base and chrome tube shafts, black plastic molded arms, and they wear their original nubby oatmeal colored fabric. They’re AWESOME!! Need a cool pair of chairs for your home office? Here you go! Maybe you need a new look in your study, sitting room, or extra seating in your living room? You just found it. They are so comfortable and very versatile. Not to mention, they are made by Steelcase AND in the style of the iconic Charles Pollock! Two high quality and exceedingly popular designs. They will be awesome in your mid-century modern home or equally as nice in an industrial loft or modern country ranch house!
Steelcase was founded as the Metal Office Furniture Company in 1912 by Peter M. Wege in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Metal Office Furniture Company’s first products included fireproof metal safes and four-drawer filing cabinets which Wege invented and manufactured for the Macey Company. In 1914, the company received its first product patent for “The Victor,” a fireproof steel wastebasket. The Victor gained popularity due to its light weight achieved through a patented process of bending flat steel at right angles to create boxes, and its ability to prevent fires at a time when smoking was common indoors, particularly in the workplace. In 1915, the company began manufacturing and distributing steel desks and in 1937, the company collaborated with Frank Lloyd Wright on office furniture. The partnership lasted two years and resulted in some of the first modern workstations. The company officially changed its name to Steelcase, Inc. in 1954 and became known as the leader of the furniture industry in the late 1960s due to the volume of its sales and in 1973, the company debuted the Series 9000 furniture line. Steelcase merged three of its subsidiaries, Brayton International, Metro Furniture and Vecta to form Coalesse in 2008. The three main brands of Steelcase Inc. are Steelcase, Coalesse, and Turnstone. The company’s current headquarters was built in 1983 and is in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
