"I was once asked to rebuild a Gerrit Reitveld “Z” Chair (a classic of modern furniture design) which had been seriously damaged. The project inspired this design. I expected it to be the most uncomfortable chair imaginable, until I sat on it and  learned that flat can be amazingly comfortable. Your friends will never ask to move to the living room after dinner."---Rob

The solid wood seats and backs are book-matched. Sets are always made from wood from the same log so the color will age consistently and have a continuity of grain.

For those who want a little extra padding on the seat, a form-fit cushion is also available. The curve of the 'Essex' variation works especially well with my eliptical and round table tops.
