After years of experimentation with the medium, the original Plywood Dining Chair design was introduced to the furniture market in the 1940s. This new medium (which had previously been used primarily as a building material) presented huge opportunity because it proved to be a versatile material well-suited for mass-produced designs. As a result of suburban expansion post-WWII, a generation of new homes had been built and the inspiration fueled the birth of what is now known as the mid-century style. This design proved so revolutionary that Times Magazine awarded it "Best Design of the 20th Century" in 1999.

Improving upon the original, it is available in various high quality, American FSC-certified wood veneers, making it an eco-friendly choice with iconic style. Its solid construction provides an unparalleled level of quality and an exceptional value for any mid-century or modern dining space. Its smooth contoured seat and back provide form-fitting support that also make the Plywood Dining Chair with Wood Legs a practical choice as a stylish, medium use desk chair.
