Bentwood chairs like these were hugely popular in the 1920’s and were found in many of Europe’s most fashionable hotels and restaurants and are sometime referred to as “cafe” bentwoods for their popularity among European street cafes. There were many different variations of these chairs, mostly stand chairs, it is unusual to find a large set of armchairs. The simple construction of bentwood chairs belies the strength and durability. Testament to this can be found in the superb condition, sturdiness and strength found in these chairs 100 years later
