1934 Dining Chair by Sundance
A standard in French cafés since the 1930s, this durable varnished-steel bistro chair will withstand even the most rigorous wear and tear. Its small size makes it a good choice for tight spaces; the simple design makes it a natural fit for both modern and rustic interiors. (17¾ inches wide by 18 inches deep by 33½ inches high; steel only.)
