Wegner Presidential Dining Chair
The presidential chair AKA the “round chair” earned its name for its rounded back design. The original chair was designed by Hans J. Wegner in the year 1949. The chair coined the name “presidential” after its selection and use in the 1960 televised presidential debate between Nixon and Kennedy.
Making the Icon
The Kardiel reproduction of the Presidential chair is crafted entirely by hand. Using traditional joinery methods and being made of Solid Ash Hardwood, the chair construction is today as it was then. The upholstery selected for the Kardiel reproduction is Genuine Italian leather. The back forms a circle shape extending toward the front of the chair creating the arms. The seat platform is also made of wood then wrapped with multi-density low profile Dacron covered foam. True to the original design, the front legs extend upward meeting as the support structure for the arms. This highly functional widely recognized chair is frequently used as an occasional seating chair, a dining chair and an office chair.
This high quality reproduction features all of the quality construction points and has the good posture of civility and solid form at a fraction of the original cost.
