Our Garden Chair
The Garden Chair is a re-design of an iconic Rietveld Chair. Gerhardt Rietveld, a Dutch architect, designed the original chair in 1918. One of these sits on display at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City. For chair aficionados, our version is both more comfortable and more sturdy.
Our chair is more upright than the Rietveld, creating those comfortable angles for back, butt and knees. The legs and struts are attached to each other by notching the pieces to fit into each other; critical joins are also doweled. Although screws are used, no screw heads show on top of the wood. This feature protects the wood from water, rot, and eventualy wobbliness.
The simple, yet effective alterations have maintained the look and feel of the original, beautiful, innovative Rietveld Chair. The clean lines suit both modern and historic gardens, not to mention breezy porches, spacious sunrooms, and welcoming gazebos.
Garden Chair Dimensions
Wondering how many will fit on your porch or patio? Compare your available space to our chairs! The basic footprint of one chair is 27" wide x 33" deep.
The wood is machined to 15/16" thickness and the legs and struts are 1.75" square.
Finishing the Garden Chair
We recommend Benjamin Moore’s Aura Exterior paint. This comes in a wide range of lovely colors, or can be obtained in a custom color. Check out the possibilities at your local Benjamin Moore store and call us with your choice.
