Bauhaus Chairs

A simplistic, industrial style married to the use of natural materials is the cornerstone of the Bauhaus seating style, and this has never been more evident than in Bauhaus chairs. Originating from the Bauhaus school of design, which was open from 1919 to 1933, this unique yet adaptable style draws from a desire to blend the lines between artistry and craftsmanship. And when applied to Bauhaus chair design, the result is a collection of pieces that can add a fresh and uncomplicated style to any home, regardless of design preference.

Think chic chrome curves, a bentwood-inspired aesthetic, cane, wood, simplicity, and achingly contemporary styling. In need of a place to sit your growing brood but don’t want to plump for a modern behemoth of a couch? A gorgeous 1930s chromed Bauhaus sofa could set your living room apart. Craving a designer piece? A Bauhaus Thonet chair from the master of shaping wood is the only option.

At Vinterior we have a wide range of Bauhaus chairs available, so enjoy browsing our collection and finding the right one for your home.

Why choose vintage Bauhaus seating?

Taking inspiration from both the industrial and natural worlds, the Bauhaus style of designn incorporates a number of different features that each form a key part of its DNA. One of the first things to be aware of when considering adding Bauhaus chairs to your home is the shape of the arms. Bauhaus design promotes simplicity, and its chairs are famed for their sleek, gentle curves which are a key part of this iconic design collective.

Bauhaus upholstery features

It is also worth noting that no chair is complete without a high level of upholstery work, and Bauhaus chair designs in the Bauhaus style are no different. Generally upholstered with natural leather or cane, the craftsmanship that goes into perfecting these simple designs is reflected in the strong yet stylish materials chosen here. These chairs were designed to last whilst keeping their fashionable appeal across decades, and that is exactly what their upholstery helps them to do. And last but by no means least, one of the most important things to consider when looking at Bauhaus chairs is their overall design. Whilst all Bauhaus designers draw inspiration from the same initial source, their creations can be varied. It is important that you take into consideration not only the way the Bauhaus chair looks on its own, but also how it will fit in with the remaining pieces of furniture in the room. Bauhaus pieces are often used as springboards from which to build out the design of a room, so bear this in mind when searching for your next piece. With that in mind, it is also important to understand that when you purchase a Bauhaus-style chair or Bauhaus sofa, you are not only getting a stunning piece of furniture for your home, you are also getting a piece of history.
