Many of our designs begin with specific requests from clients. In this case, someone liked the van Muyden but wanted a side chair version that would allow for more seating around a table. When we finished the prototype we were delighted by how comfortable, light, functional and simple it was. The van Muyden Side Chair has a laminated, curved back to improve lumbar support and is available with either wood or brass front legs. The set pictured here was made from elm wood salvaged from a tree on the grounds of the state capitol in Sacramento, California.
