the combination of the chrome, upholstery, and wood reminds me of the '60s dining chairs. these are fantabulous! designed by Martin Balllendat for Tonon Italia, the chair's slim, curved plywood back are available in beech, cherry, oak, or black-walnut veneers. the cushion comes in various colours in myriad fabrics and leathers. the base of chrome-plated steel has 3 versions - curved, a single column, or four straight legs. my favriot combo is acutally shown here - oak veneer and white cushion with a single-column base.
