Florence Knoll's Niche in Mid-Century Modern Design

If clarity is the counterbalance of profound thoughts then Florence Knoll must be exactly that among the furniture designers of the Mid-Century Modern era.  Her structural pieces in a room combined with other Mid-Century Modern sculptural and organic designs of the time bring back a sense of geometric order to any setting.

Our reproduction of Knoll's Lounge Chair, created in 1954 as a part of her Lounge Collection, matches the dimensions of her original design including minute details such as the thickness of the arms and the height of the back.  It sits upon a square stainless steel tubing frame that has been welded so all joints are seamless, unlike the signature model’s frame that uses mild steel with flash chrome plating.  We also offer a variety of colors, materials and detailing options so you can make this iconic chair all your own.

Come visit us and experience it firsthand at either our Chicago or Bellingham Showroom!
