Desire/Acquire: the Wassily Chair

Marcel Breuer's Wassily Chair ($1,600) is easily one of the most iconic furniture designs of the 20th century. Though it was designed in 1925, it continues to exude an avant-garde air with its strong, spare lines and gleaming, bicycle-inspired chrome frame. Decades past its introduction, original Wassilys maintain their tautness, though Knoll still manufactures the chair. But lovely as it be, the leather-slung chair is out of reach for many. To see where you can find the next best thing,


Room & Board makes a faithful reproduction of Breuer's design, known as the Wassily Leather Chair ($649), complete with top-grain leather and a chrome-finish tubular steel frame for a fraction of the price. No, it's not produced by Knoll, the original manufacturer, but can you tell the difference? I sure can't.
