Our Paris walnut 68cm backless bentwood kitchen stool offers the best of European bentwood furniture design.
One of the first barstools to be mass-produced, this iconic European bentwood barstool was ubiquitous all over the cafes and brasseries of 19th-century Paris, Vienna and Berlin. Our Michael Thonet designed original backless kitchen barstool in white is once again a must-have trend piece but this sophisticated barstool is such a classic it never looks dated or kitschy.
Michael Thonet’s 'Paris' stool has earned its place as an icon of bentwood furniture and is a revered part of design history. Thonet, a German cabinet maker by trade, rose to establish the first real mass production of bentwood furniture designs. Thonet’s legacy is impressive and his much lauded bentwood furniture designs are experiencing a dramatic resurgence in popularity given their high quality, affordable chic style.
