Pony Skin

A combination of black, white & brown hairs, each hide is a one-of-a-kind, will vary due to the unique nature and character of cowhide, and is sure to provide any mid-century classic with a distinguished beauty all its own, and a strikingly iconic look that radiates authenticity.

Plywood Dining Chair with Wood Legs

20th Century's Best Design Made Affordable
After years of experimentation with the medium, the original Plywood Dining Chair design was introduced to the furniture market in the 1940s. This new medium (which had previously been used primarily as a building material) presented huge opportunity because it proved to be a versatile material well-suited for mass-produced designs. As a result of suburban expansion post-WWII, a generation of new homes had been built and the inspiration fueled the birth of what is now known as the mid-century style. This design proved so revolutionary that Times Magazine awarded it "Best Design of the 20th Century" in 1999.

Our Plywood Dining Chair with Wood Legs is based on the original design (known as the "Molded Plywood Dining Chair Wood Base" or "DCW") which debuted over half-a-century ago and it stays true to its revolutionary production techniques. Like the original, it is constructed of layered bent hardwood. Improving upon the original, it is available in various high quality, American FSC-certified wood veneers, making it an eco-friendly choice with iconic style. Its solid construction provides an unparalleled level of quality and an exceptional value for any mid-century or modern dining space. Its smooth contoured seat and back provide form-fitting support that also make the Plywood Dining Chair with Wood Legs a practical choice as a stylish, medium use desk chair.

I was thinking plywood would be stiff and maybe a little uncomfortable but it turns out I was dead wrong, ergonomic designs literally form to the shape of the body, I am impressed!

a true hallmark
I admire wooden furniture that has shape to it. The form is free flowing while still preserving a sort of rigidity in its design - these chairs are definitely a true hallmark to the ideals of scandinavian mid century modern design - an all-time favorite of mine

stunning form, gorgeous shape
The way the curves of the backrest seemingly flow under the seat is stunning! I am still in awe of how gorgeous they look in the dining room, I didn't know wood could be formed like this!

Love my new plywood dining chairs with bentwood legs and pony seats! The wait was definitely worth it, 'cause these things are awesome! Comfy, stylish, unique and well-made. They were shipped to withstand a Richter 9 earthquake and zombie apocalypse combined! Highly recommended. Thank you, inmod!

from Baltimore, MD asked:
December 10, 2016
I am interested in this chair with the custom pony/cowhide option. Can you provide more detail about that option? Specifically, are the seat and the back both upholstered? If the back is upholstered are both surfaces covered (front and back)? How does the hair/nap run (up or down)? Can an alternative leather be used such as one of the aniline options? Thank you!
1 Answer
The seat and back rest are both upholstered. The underneath of the seat and back of the back rest are are not upholstered. The upholstery will run up and down. We do not offer any other option for upholstery for this item.
