    Harry Bertoia's delicately industrial Side Chair is among the most recognized achievements of mid-century modern design. Like Saarinen and Mies, Bertoia found sublime grace in an industrial material, elevating it beyond its normal utility into a work of art.

      This is a great chair and also highly copied. I almost bought a pair a couple of weeks ago, until I realized they were copies.

      Yes that's true, and still made new today. Having the original seating pad with the sticker is one of the only way to authenticate these chairs. I got lucky and picked this with other high quality pieces.
