Here at Relax House we love furniture and we are deeply committed to bringing the people of Australia high quality originals of some of the most respected and revered designs in furniture history. For each product that graces the pages of our online catalogue or our furniture showroom, we have turned down hundreds of pieces because they did not meet our standards for attention to detail, quality materials or workmanship. Simply put, they just weren’t good enough to bring to our valued customers. Our reputation is only as good as the products we offer and that makes us think long and hard before considering additions to our line of high end designer reproductions. So it is with much excitement that we introduce our new, expansive line of European made Micheal Thonet designed bentwood chairs and stools
Bentwood Chairs & Tulip table
It has been over 150 years since German cabinet maker Michael Thonet made his first bentwood chair using steam to bend solid wood into usable works of art. Thonet was impressively ahead of his time and his chair designs have come to be some of the most recognizable forms in furniture. Thonet’s pieces continue to be a mainstay of interior design. The reason for the enduring popularity of Thonet’s designs is in part because his bentwood chairs and bar stools have come to symbolize the simple marriage of form and function making them pleasing to modern furniture lovers everywhere. These are chairs that can blend with a classic, modern or even traditional interior design. With a clear understanding of economy of materials, Thonet chairs are chic, simple, classic and malleable enough to work well in varying design perspectives.
Bentwood Chairs at home
Michael Thonet's chairs have a rich, European history and have been a fixture of design for well over a century. Very good design may ebb and flow in popularity but it never dies out and the Micheal Thonet designed Thonet furniture collection is again on trend. In the last few seasons, our design team has seen Thonet chairs once again popping up on the pages of upscale design magazines and gracing the “After” pictures of high end home makeovers. Once a staple of European bars, bistros and brasseries, the Micheal Thonet designed chairs and stools are becoming popular restaurant chairs owing to their good looks, cost and durability. We new our customers following design trends would love to get their hands on these classics and our customers that just like a well built chair would love them too.
