When you consider that Pablo Picasso kept a Thonet bentwood rocking chair in his studio, there’s no question that these illustrious seats are true works of art. A cousin of the bentwood cafe chair that German-Austrian woodworker Michael Thonet designed in the late 19th century, the Thonet rocking chair stuns with swooping bentwood arms that also function as the chair’s treads. With its oval-shaped back and caned back and seat, the Thonet rocker fuses elements from both the Art Nouveau and Victorian periods to create a quintessentially turn-of-the-20th-century design. Over the last century, the Thonet rocking chair has evolved and been interpreted by other designers resulting in a wide variety of designs.
