Here is an early formal dining chair and table set designed by Gilbert Rohde in 1933. Rohde was a modernist that drew inspiration from the simplicity of Bauhaus design. He combined that simplicity with the flair of Art Deco. Gilbert Rhode designed many modern pieces for Herman Miller in the 1930s. The set pictured here was from an auction lot that sold in Chicago in 2002 for $2,900. This same style chair is found in many furniture stores today.
