This Woven Chair Is Taking the Design World by Storm
Here's why you're seeing Pierre Jeanneret's Chandigarh chair everywhere.
Move over Platner: The latest chair du jour is Pierre Jeanneret's Chandigarh. Perhaps it's our current obsession with natural materials and woven furniture that's made the style so prominent, or maybe it's because mid-century design is consistently so popular. Whatever the reason, one thing's for sure: Everyone's love of the Jeanneret chair isn't slowing down.
We first noticed the chair-its iconic V-shaped legs inspired by an architect's drafting compass-in designer Joseph Dirand's gorgeous Paris apartment. His were upholstered in a chic green velvet. Soon the sculptural design started popping up in stylish, high-end homes all over our Instagram feed. Athena Calderone, interior designer, chef, and creator of EyeSwoon, keeps her ebonized version in the sunny kitchen of her stunning new Brooklyn townhouse.
