The No 18 Bentwood Chair is a genuine Michael Thonet designed bentwood chair handcrafted in Europe and manufactured in Poland by Fameg. The No 18 Bentwood Chair is designed by Michael Thonet and offers a beautiful option in commercial grade seating. While it has echoes of the past, its design is truly timeless in appeal. The beautiful natural finish of the European beech is attractive and yet remarkably durable. Handmade by skilled craftsmen, it's a timeless classic original bentwood chair manufactured by Fameg since 1881 in the original Thonet Brothers factory in Poland.

Our black No 18 Bentwood Chairs are black stained, not black enamel. The black stained bentwoods show a small amount of wood grain through the seat, a feature that is very popular in Australia.
