Bentwood

Definition: Bentwood

Bentwood is a type of furniture formed by heating wooden rods with steam and bending them into curved shapes. The style is most commonly used to make chairs — including dining, side, and rocking chairs — which are lately coming back in vogue. The technique was pioneered in the 1800s by a German manufacturer named Michael Thonet, whose catalog has been since reproduced in book form.

When I was young, we had a bent wood rocker that I just loved. I still think of bentwood as something comforting. I don't own any now but I still like the look.
