The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Design at the Driehaus Museum

Share 'The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Design at the Driehaus Museum '

Designed for form and function, each of these works of art acts as a window into our national history, culture, and social trends. The chairs are presented surrounded by the lavish late 19th-century interiors of the Driehaus Museum—once the residence of the affluent Nickerson and Fisher families of Chicago. Each piece of seating furniture in the 1883 mansion was carefully designed to harmonize with the room for which it was intended.

Information
