The spare details of the Munich chair recall the International Style, a term coined in the 1930s to describe the American form of Bauhaus architecture that took root in New York. In that spirit, the Munich chair's straightforward rounded wood back and simple upholstered cushion provide welcome function without ornamentation. A hard maple frame made with mortise-and-tenon construction ensures lasting strength. Designed by Timothy deFiebre of New York City, the design expresses his study of proportion and manipulation of materials to create different surface textures. The chair reflects Cumberland's standards for high quality, beautifully designed modern American classics crafted with honest materials and delivered flawlessly and without attitude. Using Cumberland's breadth of material choices, interior design professionals have great freedom in altering the character of the Munich Chair.
