Norman Counter Stool
Mid-Century Bentwood Beauty
The Norman Counter Stool is an accurate replica of one of the most recognized stools of the mid-20th century. Designed in 1958 by Norman Cherner (an architect, industrial designer and teacher), this iconic bentwood counter stool was revolutionary at its time and utilized innovative plywood molding techniques which allowed for the creation of organic continuous forms. Norman Cherner's molded plywood seating series also included a barstool and side chair (whose inclusion in Norman Rockwell's 1961 painting, "The Artist At Work" propelled awareness and popularity of the collection). Since then, these icons have been featured in design collections and museums all over the world.
The Norman Counter Stool preserves the quality craftsmanship, definitive contours and luxurious wood grain detail found in the original. Featuring layered bent plywood construction available in a variety of American-harvested eco-friendly wood veneers (with a built-in stainless steel footrest for additional support), the Norman Counter Stool is well-adapted to every day needs and modern sensibility in both residential and public spaces.
