Crinion Side Chair

Jonathan Crinion 1999

The Crinion wood side chair, with soft lines and pleasing proportions, offers a graceful alternative to more angular, geometric options. Crinion describes the chair as, “a very clean, simple, friendly chair—light and movable with a sense of economy.”  The chair is offered with or without ribbon-candy arms in a wide array of finish options.
