The Famous Chair

Modernist and furniture designer Marcel-Breuer left an indelible mark in products. The Hungarian born artist also served as architect, creating the stunning Whitney Museum of American Art building in New York city. In terms of furniture, one his biggest legacies was the Wassily Chair, (named after the artist Kandinsky) which took tubular steel to the next level with clean lines.

If you’re feeling inspired to incorporate this classic in your home, eBay has an abundant selection of Bruer’s Wassily chairs in various styles
