Klismos Chair

The Klismos chair, based on an ancient Greek model, is the first piece in our new range of replica furniture. Further pieces, all inspired by our unique collection of antiques, include a coffee table after Emile Ruhlmann, a Thomas Chippendale garden seat, and a window seat in the style of Charles Heathcote Tatham (1772–1842). Made from sustainable hardwood with woven leather seats. The original Klismos chairs were created by the Greeks during the 6th Century BC and were the first chairs that allowed people to sit freely and in a relaxed, natural position. More than two thousand years after it was devised, the Klismos chair was revived during the late 18th and the early 19th Centuries. The form was revived again in 1906 when architect Emmanuel Pontrémoli recreated them for Théodore Reinach at Villa Kérylos in Beaulieu-sur-Mer overlooking the Mediterranean.
