Strength and beauty

Although a pioneer in prefab housing, Norman Cherner is best known for this chair. Constructed of laminated plywood of graduating thicknesses, from 5-ply at the seat edge to 15-ply at the slender waist, the Cherner Chair (1958) possesses exceptional structural strength and dramatic sculptural beauty. The armchair version features a single solid piece of bent beech that wraps around the sitter. This is the authentic Cherner Chair made by the Cherner Chair Company. Made in U.S.A.

Sculptural Simplicity
We have an eclectic look, some modern classics and some Indonesian teak, African and rustic pieces, lots of indigenous art. We live in Santa Fe, NM in a condo with vigas, kiva fireplace. Our dining area is in full view of the living room and kitchen. We needed some smaller-scale dining chairs for a narrow rectangular antique Spanish table. The Cherner side chairs in black are quite simply stunning. They are also very comfortable, as our dining room table also serves as a work area. The packaging was itself amazing. Each chair came individually boxed with cardboard bracing that was a marvel of engineering in protecting the chair from any dings or damage. Each chair also came with a certificate of authenticity. These are made by THE Cherner company. But we won't be parting with them any time soon.
