Mid-Century Walnut & Beech Armchair by Cherner

Norman Cherner (United States, 20th Century)

Mid-Century Walnut & Beech Armchair by Cherner

In walnut and beech. The chair was designed in the late 1950s by Norman Cherner (1920-87) for Plycraft. Even though Plycraft told Cherner that the design would not be produced, the company started the production as its own design. In 1961 the chair appeared in Norman Rockwell's painting "The Artist at Work" and became very popular. Cherner sued Plycraft and a settlement was reached. In the 1970s Plycraft stopped the production. For more than 20 years the chair was only found in design museums or some collectors homes. In 1999 the sons of Norman Cherner founded the "Cherner Chair Company" and restarted the production of their father's designs which led to renewed popularity of the chair.
