These eight Art Deco Gilbert Rohde for Heywood Wakefield (unmarked) dining chairs are a stylish and sophisticated set that reflects the streamlined and modern aesthetic of the 1930s. The set includes six regular dining chairs and two captain style end chairs. The chairs were designed by Gilbert Rohde, a self-taught industrial designer who helped define the American modernism movement and transformed Herman Miller into a leading furniture company.
The chairs are made of a bentwood construction that creates a smooth and sleek shape for the seat and back with a wood base with rounded rear legs that give them a sturdy and elegant support. These are made from light wood in a natural finish with off-white boucle upholstery. This set is a perfect example of Gilbert Rohde’s innovative and minimalist style, as well as his mastery of new materials and techniques for his time.
