The original klismos chair was invented in Ancient Greece, and it had three defining features. It had to have four legs curved outwards, two parallel, curving rails for the back, and a narrow, horizontal, concave back rest. All of these curves were made to contour the human form as well as give the seat an elegant and shapely image. Our Acrylic Klismos Chair is an updated, modern interpretation of this classical seat. While it has four straight legs (for the contemporary home), the back of this seat fits the klismos description perfectly. Plus, this chair gets a whole new image in chic acrylic. Bring modern style and lots of history into your home with the Acrylic Klismos Chair!
