The van Muyden Side Chair is a custom design from a client who loved the van Muyden Arm Chair but had a need for a side chair design that would allow more seating space around a dining room table. We integrated the Nordic-inspired design used in the arm chair during the initial conceptual phase. Once we completed the prototype and discovered how comfortable, functional, light and simple this handcrafted side chair was, we were delighted and immediately set to work on the final piece.
The laminated and bent back support is directly borrowed from the arm chair version. This unique design is available in any of the available woods in our California woodshop, and can be further customized with either brass or wood front legs. Though originally designed as a dining chair, the van Muyden Side Chair works in a conference room, as a desk chair or in a sitting room.
Our handmade van Muyden Side Chair pictured here was crafted from salvaged European elm from the grounds of the California state capitol in Sacramento.
