The Cherner Chair Company

at Smart Furniture

The history of the Cherner Chair has a complicated yet storied past. Norman Cherner, the inventor of the Cherner Chair, was a true architecture renaissance man. He drafted homes, chairs, and tables in a holistic view of what a complete lifestyle design ethos can be. Originally conceived as a solution for a low-cost living solutions, Cherner now is associated with the high-end, mid-century school of furniture.

A Company Born Out of the Ashes

Norman Cherner's manufacturing slowed down from the time of his chairs and tables' invention until it stopped completely. In 1999, at the behest of architects and designers all over the world, Norman's sons, Thomas and Benjamin, decided to resurrect their father's timeless designs. Following the original schematics and handmade processes, they brought their father's molded plywood chairs and tables back to life.
