The Dutch manufacturer, De Ster Gelderland from the centre-east of the Netherlands produced many of the most well-known Dutch chairs of the mid-20th century. Their expertise in woodworking is evident in this set of chairs, with precisely sculpted and assembled structures. Wood is the most traditional material for furniture, it is organic, elemental, sturdy, and has become very stylish. While during the industrial revolution, furniture manufactured from materials such as steel, aluminium, glass and plastic, began to appear, wood has remained a staple material in furniture manufacturing. The design offers plenty visually with a striking construction and personality. The fan shaped backrests are composed of wooden spindles with a horizontal top with a carved pattern that frames the backs. While the masterfully sculpted and symmetrically arranged individual spindles undeniably define the overall look, the seat and legs are also very
appealing. The seat is carved ergonomically to accommodate the sitter, while the legs are splayed to provide stability. For further structural firmness, the legs are connected by three stretchers. Not only is wood everlasting, it is also a staple material in contemporary interior design as well. The rustic charm of these chairs can only grow even more with time.
