It should really be the Pierre Jeanneret chair. But somehow, the chair came to be better known as the Chandigarh Chair. After all, it was seen all over the city in the 1950s - from balconies and verandahs to the High Court and other administrative buildings. But it is no surprise Pierre was in the city when it was being built, and he designed it for the exact purpose of being sturdy, functional, modern and aesthetic. An easy design that sports V-shaped legs, a cane back-rest in the rattan style and made from teak, this one went from being a necessity in government offices to being in Kourtney Kardashian’s home! But we’ve tried these, and they’re super comfortable, strong and pretty aesthetic too. Pierre was quite the designer and architect, so, yes it's expected!
Since the style is making a proper comeback, it's time to go old school. And if you’re looking for a strong, good looking yet practical chair(s), shop for the Chandigarh Chair. Here’s where to get them.
