Gustavian Klismos Chairs – Reader Response

April 1, 2009

Just for you, in response to reader requests, here are two photos of the Gustavian Klismos Chair.

This first photo shows its debut in a Trend House room in the Washington Design Center.


Interior designer Frank Babb Randolph loved the proportions of this chair, but I love its comfort.  The chair is generously sized with a back that hits me and most people just right for perfect support.  Incidentally all the other furniture in this room is by Niermann Weeks also.


The second photo shows it in our showroom in Los Angeles at the Pacific Design Center, a showroom we share with Nancy Corzine.

Today’s post is just a little bite for you.  I hope you enjoyed!

    Smart, sleek and simply elegant, this wonderful chair is the attention stealer of any room but is built for comfort too. I love the slight indentations along the front rail allowing the back of the legs to relax.

    I’ve been in love with your Gustavian Klismos Chair since first spotting it in the DC showroom… Mr. Randolph is right, the proportions are absolutely spot on. I just stumbled upon your blog, and am eager to search through the previous posts.

    This chair was reproduced from my original chair which was made by Maison Jansen in the 40’s. The fact that Joe Niermann calls it a Gustavian Klismos chair is hysterical. Allan Reyes Interior Design/Palm Beach
