We love the twist on this traditional Chinese design with its iron construction. Often referred to as yoke-back chairs, because of the center splat, a crucial element to the structure that was ahead of its time. This design flourished during the Ming and Qing dynasties. Once sent as a gift to King Philip II in the 16th century, this design gave inspiration to Western cultures. With its slender silhouette and graceful proportions, this Iron Chinese Chair is great for any dining space from traditional to modern. Surround your dining table with them, or flank a console table for a piece of furniture that doubles as a work of art.
