Thonet Bauhaus Style Reverse Cantilever Chairs Chrome Tube Black Wood & Cane by Arthur Umanoff

Pair Breuer Bauhaus Style Reverse Cantilever Chairs in Chrome Tube Black Wood & Cane

I love this pair of reverse cantilever chairs!! They are done in the style of the renowned Bauhaus furniture designer Marcel Breuer who designed the famous Cesca chair. But we believe these to have been done in the 1970s when there was a great resurgence of the Bauhaus streamline and the Art Deco style. They are amazingly comfortable with their reverse cantilever chrome tube frames and black painted wood scoop or bucket seats with natural cane inserts. They are the perfect pair of accent chairs whether you have a mid-century modern aesthetic, industrial, modern country, rustic, Art Deco, or Hollywood Regency décor. They could be used in a living room setting, your master bedroom, home office, entry, or as host and hostess chairs in your dining room. No matter where or how you use them…you need to make them yours!

Product Short Description :

Handsome pair of reverse cantilever chairs in the style of Bauhaus and Marcel Breuer of chrome tube, black wood, and cane. They are in wonderful vintage condition. The cane has been replaced in one of the chairs and the black frame restored. Please see photos. Circa 1970s.

UPDATE: While researching a different pair of chairs I found out that this pair of awesome chairs were designed by Arthur Umanoff for Thonet in 1971. And in reading the copy for a 1970s ad they described them just as I did. As in the style of Marcel Breuer’s Bauhaus chairs. So rather than rewrite the complete description I decided to just add this update.
