Take a Seat: Modern Chairs on Etsy
Handpicked on Etsy
The chair has long been an opportunity for artisans and designers to explore form and function. A good chair designer is a sculptor and most definitely an artist. Materials may be locally gathered or industrial state-of-the-art, and the goal may be a blend of comfort, style, ornamentation or purely decorative. Today's featured examples reflect an appreciation of the modern aesthetic, representing vintage mid-20th Century International Style, updated handcrafted takes on Craftsman Style, Scandinavian Modern and a whimsical interpretation of the classic Federal Style using modern materials. Click on the pictures to go directly to these Etsy listings. Prices range from $399.00 to $4500.00.
