The Klismos chair, is one that dates back to ancient Greece. It has such distinct characteristics that it is often easy to recognize the design. The chair typically has four sabre legs that extend outward in the front and back and a central, concave support at shoulder height. The reinterpretation of the Klismos chair shown here is from Global Views. The collection features a dining or occasional chair and as well as a bench. This chair is simple, elegant and sophisticated and may be used in a variety of settings from traditional to transitional to contemporary. The limed oak frame of the chairs and bench are complemented by a soft-colored grey or beige leather upholstery. The neutral leather colors afford many different possibilities in terms of what colors, fabrics, patterns, etc. the chairs and/or bench may be paired with. There is no doubt that this design has stood the test of time. It will never appear dated and these beautiful pieces will be able to be passed down from generation to generation.
