The Michael Thonet designer restaurant stool still stands as one of the most popular bentwood stools ever. Owing to its strength and European charm, this stool was a mainstay of the cafes and bars of Berlin and Vienna. We love the original and we went directly to the source, the original Thonet factory in Poland, to offer you an affordable, well constructed, here in natural finished Beech wood.
On trend once again, Thonet’s collection of bentwood stools have found a renewed popularity. The Relax House authentic original Michael Thonet bar stool is a classic Thonet bentwood design created from natural beech wood. This stand out stool features a solid wood seat with a striking starburst pattern embossed on it. The design details add to the charm and custom look of this iconic stool.
If you take the time to admire you will notice that each product is unique using many pieces of European Beechwood. Based on the nature of natural wood inconsistencies in grain, joins, colour, texture and shape deserve appreciation like strokes on a painting or sculpture.
It is important to note that any stress marks in the timber from the production process will not exacerbate over time. Stresses caused in the bending and joining process are what make these items so impressive. This can be more prevalent in the painted options as the paint tends to highlight these 'perfect imperfections'
