Clean, classic, well-designed furniture pieces never go out of style. This is certainly true of the classic August Thonet designed B9 bentwood armchair. Hearing charcoal, the iconic B9 Cava Bentwood Armchair gets a fresh update with an entirely modern range of color options.  Among the first mass-produced furniture, Thonet chairs are credited as marking the beginning of the modern furniture era and are as sought after today as they were over a century ago.

Widely used by modernist architect Le Corbusier around the mid 1920s, these curvilinear that would armchairs are still a favorite among designers and architects likely owing to their perfect balance of form and their impeccable construction. In designing the back of the chair and rear legs from just one piece of curved wood, designer August Thonet – who exalted the bentwood process for chair-making –removed the need for costly hand carved joints. While these bentwood furniture designs were 1st created over 100 years ago, they were imaginative and innovative in a way that had not been applied to furniture before.
