Era Chair

Era chair by Michael Thonet for the TON Factory
Designer: 
Retailer: 

Pros
This is the iconic bentwood chair, evoking romantic visions of Paris sidewalk cafes. It comes in classic brown, white, and black, as well as a gutsier fire-engine red. It’s easy to tote and super-lightweight—–it’s fewer than eight pounds!

Cons
From a distance, Era looks great, but upon closer inspection, some of the details feel a bit crude, namely a flimsy-feeling seat with a ridge along the edge and exposed screw heads. Did value-engineering price out wood plugs?
