Marcel Breuer Wassily Chair:

The Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer designed in the 1920s was considered to be revolutionary in the use of material and manufacturing due its bent tubular steel. The origin of the design goes back to Breuer’s inspiration from bicycles and the lightness of their tubular frame.

Named after Wassily Kandinsky, credited as a trailblazer of abstract art and a colleague of Breuer at the Bauhaus, the chair is a true representation of engineering innovation of the early Twentieth century. Not only that, this audacious design refines traditional club chairs to a series of tenacious, spare lines, brought to fruition with dynamic material.  Featuring leather seating, leathering to maintain its crisp tautness for ages.  

Furnish Plus produces this timeless icon in Italian Aniline Leather or Top Grain available in various colors with a chrome-plated stainless steel frame that is impervious to chipping and flaking.

About the Designer

Marcel Breuer

Informative Image

Marcel Breuer (1902- 1981) was born in Hungary and later studied and taught at the Bauhaus in Dessau. There, he became one of the very first designers who would create furniture with tubular steel. Apparently, his Adler bicycle's elegantly curved tubular steel handlebars inspired him to work with this material. The process of manufacturing seamless, tubular steel had just been invented by the German steel manufacturer Mannesmann.

For the auditorium in Dessau, Breuer developed several different pieces of furniture, all of which were lightweight, affordable, and hygienic. At that time, this was absolutely revolutionary for many reasons. It used new materials like leather or bent steel, and most importantly, it looked absolutely different than anything else that had ever been designed before. As such, it does not seem surprising that Marcel Breuer’s creation evaded popularity, much to his disappointment. After his Bauhaus career, Breuer spent some time in Berlin, designing private residences, buildings, and commercial spaces. Later in his career, he also created innovative wooden furniture but his most famous design is definitely the Wassily Chair.

  1. Connah Vaughn

    Chair is sturdy and looks just like the picture! Can’t find this good of a price anywhere else. Good quality.

  2. Kylan Crouch

    Great Wassily chair, the material is really nice, great support. Can hold a lot of weights. can never go wrong with Italian leather. Too bad wait time is ridiculously long.

  3. Amber Gilbert

    Low and stylish mid-modern recreation chair. chrome finish is a bit less shiny than in the pics, but looks amazing in my house along with more modern pieces. Love it!

  4. Aaminah Whiteley

    Gorgeous. My husband wanted a club chair for our apartment. He likes a firm seat. I found this gem on Furnish Plus. This one adds a sense of decor and style. I might order another one.

  5. Marcel Frank

    Beautiful leather chair! Nice shade of brown. quite comfortable and roomy. seat is wide and slightly recline. Perfect to use as a club chair.

  6. Shaun Cano

    I’ve only had it for about a week, but so far it’s been good. Looks nice and appears to be of solid construction. Best price on the market.

  7. Elinor Myers

    Not meant to be sat on for a long time. The steel frame digs into your back. This was my very first order with Furnish Plus. Make a decent accent piece so we didn’t bother to go through the hassle of returning

  8. Olivia-Rose Benitez

    lucky that I bought this when it was on sale. great customer service and good value for your money. definitely would buy more from furnish plus.

  9. Kathleen Parks

    Intricate design. Well made. Haven’t sat on it, I suppose it only meant to be a decorative piece. Nice price.

  10. Chad Parra

    I’m fascinated by the bent-steel frame of this chair. the leather is high quality. it is very unique and my guests love it.

  11. Luca Mcdonald

    A great club chair. They are well built and the design was exactly what I thought it would be.

  12. Aamir Schmitt

    I absolutely love this leather armchair. The color is strikingly rich and luxe. It’s exactly what I was looking for to refresh my living room. Though I was hesitant to purchase from Furnish Plus because I have never heard of these guys. I took a chance and I’m very pleased though the chair has a very slight imperfection that isn’t that noticeable. Can’t wait until it’s available again so I can order another one.

  13. Clive Nairn

    The chairs themselves were exceptional. The seat could be a little more comfortable but doesn’t take away from the chairs in any way. Beautiful, well made chairs.

  14. Gerald Bain

    We purchased these for our reception, they are great quality, super stylish and feel wonderful. Highly recommend!

  15. Mikaeel Glenn

    I love the Wassily chair’s look. The only downside is that is sits a bit low and no where for your legs to rest, making it a bit uncomfortable since the frame is stainless steel.

  16. Kabir Davie

    The leather quality is nice and slip on the frame quite well. They are easy to sit in but not sure if ok for extended period of time . They are great for company.

  17. Estelle Valencia

    Wonderful quality for the price. Fits perfectly in the space where I want it in my living room! Looks great with our other leather furnitures. Love the simplicity of design.

  18. Marley Brook

    Great chair and best price from all the stores I have looked at. Arrived well packaged and fast! Just note that these chairs are very low to the ground, great from my look, but not for everyone!

  19. Annika Ellison

    The chair is currently in our spare bedroom-turned-lounge and it works! We might move it to the living room, but it’s exactly as described, very stylish.

  20. Ewen Greenwood

    ADORE this Wassily chair. So stylish and more comfortable than I thought.

  21. Safaa Penn

    Great reproduction of the original Wassily! Goes well with my existing furniture, looks great. Exactly what was expected. Great price compared to other stores.

  22. Abby Sexton

    We got the aniline leather in cigar brown and was so impressive in the living room. They look amazing in our retro industrial style room.

  23. Jordan Holman

    A beautiful chair. Relatively comfortable, high quality, true to photo. A great fit for my home. it’s a piece that has its own personality. I’m very happy with this purchase at Furnish Plus.

  24. Fionna Chester

    The chair came well packed and flawless. Such professional feel, easy to clean and fancy looking.

  25. Prisha Macias

    Extraordinary craftsmanship. Never thought I would own an icon of a design from Bauhaus with such reasonable pricing. Best to get it on a sale.
