Spotted: Wire Chairs

We can’t help but notice an upsurge of chic, wire chairs. Often inspired by vintage furniture, today’s models have been reimagined in eye-popping shades, some are carefully crafted by hand and all look equally as good either in the home or outdoors. Here we share with you four of the best around.

Bend Seating’s ‘Farmhouse Chair' - $450 (approx £278)

Furniture designers Bend handcraft each Farmhouse Chair, inspired by the architecture of old Amish barns. Both comfortable and completely beautiful this one steals our vote, even if it does come in a little pricey.

Bertoia Wire Chair (Vintage) - £125

Simple yet striking, this beautiful grid design was created back in 1952 by Italian artist, sculptor and furniture designer Harry Bertoia for the iconic furniture specialists Knoll. Available at Fuse Vintage.

Habitat ‘Zach’ - £170

Wire design, plastic in construction Habitat’s Zach comes in classic black or white. We love the idea of mixing both colours for a modern dining table look.

Charles Eames (Vintage) – price on application
Design duo Charles and Ray Eames pioneered modern chair design back in the ‘40s and ‘50s and have created some of the most innovative (and also some of the most copied) designs to date. While a real investment piece, this set of six chairs is a real masterpiece and exemplary of the cutting edge design Charles and Ray are renowned for. Available at Klassik Mobelkunst, an online furniture and art specialist.
