Ahhh, the Cherner chair. That amazing piece of mid-century awesomeness that's as rare as it is expensive... a new one is $1000 so I can't even image what a vintage one would cost.

The chair was designed in 1958 by Norman Cherner. After many requests to reissue the chair, in 1999 his sons started the Cherner Chair Company making reproductions. The chairs come in a variety of styles: with or without arm rests, with or without upholstery, different stains and colors, etc.

For this version of Inspired Spaces, I responded strongly to the room above when I saw the Cherner chair and the subtle nautical theme. Enjoy...

  4. The cafe chairs need to be inviting, durable, comfortable, aesthetically appealing and blend beautifully with the decor. High quality construction will pay for itself in longer life and less maintenance.
