Popular Plywood Chairs: bent and molded

Living | | Leave a Comment

If in the past rough wood was the material of choice in furniture design and manufacturing, now it seems that plywood is the new star especially because it's an easy to bend material that offers plenty of possibilities when it comes to obtaining a wide range of models with just a little bit of effort. The trendy and lightweight plywood chairs seem to be the perfect illustration as they come with gracious curves and stylish designs that offer usefulness, elegance and comfort - all in one. In the case of these ultimately welcoming and cradling chairs, the genuine gracefulness of the sturdy plywood is counterbalanced by metal structures that offer enough support and maximum comfort. Matching the curves of your body and helping your circulation due to their expansive and low back, plywood chairs are carefully calibrated to be comfortable for hours and hours of sitting, finding their place in any well appointed living space and being equally attractive to children and adults. As for the increased impact on any existing spatial awkwardness, let's take a closer look at these two popular plywood chairs:

The Modern Rocking Chair by Blu Dot - a perfect crescendo of enhanced function and form, it features a stainless steel base to support the bent plywood seat. Possessing a quite distinctive approach to modern seating and smooth looking as it gets, this rocking chair by Blu Dot is a cool update on any classic piece of lounge furniture. Visit Blu Dot for further info.

The Molded Plywood Lounge Chair with Wood Base by Herman Miller - with an enduring style and exceptional comfort, this plywood chair is molded to fit the natural contours of your body, so sitting on it will definitely feel good. Featuring hardwood inner plies and natural face veneers, this lounge chair is sure to have a more distinct shape when compared to your standard dining chair. Already available in 4 wood finishes - natural cherry, light ash, santos palisander and walnut, this lounge chair can be purchased from the Herman Miller online store.
