There are no markings on this chair. It appears to be Danish in design but I could be wrong. Any ideas guys? Any input appreciated!

    Further research has led me to believe this is by Ilmari Tapiovaara? Your thoughts?

    First thought when seeing pic was Tapiovaara!

    The nam that I thought of first. I'd only seen black wood version, though and without the rattan. It's a stunner! A keeper!

    eye why would doubt that attribution for ? it looks just like it ? I have to agree with everyone else.

    I saw that one on eBay. It's my understanding that Nakashima is the name of the style. Not the designer.

    This is definitely not a valet chair. The top is angled the wrong direction. The connection with tapiovaara is that I have seen others online sold as such. Especially the black wood version Sean spoke of.
