About the Designer
 

Norman Cherner (1920–1987), was a trailblazer both in prefab housing and molded plywood. He taught and before that, studied at the Columbia University Fine Arts Department and was an instructor at the Museum of Modern Art in New York (1947 - 1949). Here he also delved into the Bauhaus movement, began a lifetime exploration of multidisciplinary design, from toys, lighting, glassware, shelving, and furniture to his innovative work in economical prefabricated housing. Early in his career, Cherner envisaged houses as a total design concept and designed low-cost furniture particually for these affordable modular dwellings. One of his first prefabricated houses was designed, produced, and assembled (1957) for the U.S. Department of Housing. After being exhibited in Vienna, it was moved back to Connecticut and uncrated to become his first studio and home. The molded plywood seating line is what Cherner is best known for.

    The Cherner stools are great. Delivery took longer than I expected and appeared to be lost in the tracking process. The colour is darker than I expected but I still like the look and feel.

    Norman Cherner stools look awesome! Enjoy sitting in them. Only issue we encountered is that one of the stools arrived a little bit wonky. Contacted Furnish Plus and they instructed us how to fix it. Quick response from these guys

  26. Rita Williamson

    Me and my spouse are very happy with these cherner stools. I love the look/style, my small children do not. The wood finish is more matte than glossy. I was worried about buying these before trying it out, so glad it worked out!

  27. Athena Melia

    Fantastic value for the money. The build quality is awesome. There are plastic paddings on the feet keeps them from damaging the floor but make an uncomfortable sound when you stand up from it. Other than that, they are a great chair for the price tag.

  28. Hanan Bell

    The counter stools exceeds my expectations. excellent quality and a refined striking design.
