The Andover chairs, designed by Davis Allen for Stendig, are where classic meets modern. It’s hard to peel your eyes away from the characteristic black lacquered spindle back, which creates a different optical illusion from each new angle. Sculpted with expert craftsmanship and clad in their original upholstery, these chairs are sneakily hinting at their ties to the eclectic and bold style of 1980s Italy. High gloss? Check. Teal vinyl? Check. Slender profile and expertly curved seat? Check and check. These chairs bring that contemporary edge and sense of drama to your space that you’ve been looking for. 

Davis Allen is one of the talented furniture designers and architects accredited with the elevation of interior design in post-World War II America, landing a spot in the Interior Design Hall of Fame. In 1983, Allen designed the Andover Chair for Stendig International, which became a style staple in many interiors.
