Wright, Thonet and Rennie Mackintosh Chairs

The Thonet brothers made a  series of chairs designed by Michael Thonet in 1900.  They developed a method of bending glued layers of laminated wood. They patented this process and these chairs went onto become a classic french design. This chair has all the feeling of Paris cafe style and has been produced in millions.
