The Wassily chair, like many other designs of the modernist movement, has been mass-produced since the late 1920s, and has been continuously in production since the 1950s. Thereís no question that itís a design classic is still available today. And while the trademark name rights to the design are owned by Knoll of New York City, thankfully for people on tight budgets like me, the patent designs are expired, making reproductions like this available. And as far as I can tell, this is an excellent repro that has become a centerpiece in my home.
Thank you Overstock for making this repro of an amazing classic chair available! I am a fan of 20th-century modernist design and have been in love with this chair as soon as I laid eyes on just its picture. When I was able to see one for real and sit it one, I was sold. And when I saw this copy on Overstock for such a low price, I had to jump on it. And I am glad I did! It is exactly like the original, which was known as the "Wassily" because the designer Marcel Breuer made one for the painter Wassily Kandinsky, who admired it. Now I get to admire my very own!
This chair is amazing. I ordered two into our weekend house, mostly for my husband but as soon as I tried sitting in it I was happy I bought it. It not only looks highly elegant, simple yet really modern but it is top quality. The price for the two chairs was fair and easily affordable, but the look is indescribably great. Comfort, style and quality. Thank you.
I knew Overstock was the best place to come for buying great quality on low price. Just as this great looking and highly comfortable piece. I love the unique design and the whole fresh and simple look. The room looks great and I feel great when sitting and relaxing in it. Top quality and affordability. Thanks.
I love, love, LOVE the Wassily chair. The moment I saw it in my decorative arts class in college, I was obsessed. However, with my "young, urban professional" income, spending over two thousand bucks on the licensed Knoll version just isn't justifiable. "Design Within Reach?" Not my reach. Public domain to the rescue. The design fell out of licensing and the reproductions began popping up. This one is a pretty good example from the reproduction bunch. Okay, so the leather is super firm and I saw one stitch that was off, but I can forgive the minor imperfections for such a huge slash in price.
I was originally set on purchasing the traditional black version, but saw it was sold out at the time. I'm glad I purchased the tan. It maintains the industrial lines without being so hard edged. The tan, which appears yellow in the photograph, is actually more neutral toned in person.
It'll be interesting seeing how this chair ages, but considering I can buy more than 5 "Jerichos" for the price of one Knoll Wassily, I'm not worried.
The chair is an incredible bargain compared to the Knoll registered versions. My only issue with the chair is that they used a latex based product to seal the edges of the straps and it is not as designed by Marcel Breuer and is a way to use inexpensive leather straps on the chair.
The chair was Federal Expressed to me in perfect condition and I love it.
I have a budget to design a classic retro beach house rental. The Jericho chair, a knock-off style of the classic Wassily chair for thousands of dollars fit not only the budget, but has the classic style and lines. I bought a pair for a master bedroom sitting area. I'm very impressed with the quality. The tan leather is a little more on the tan-gold color, but very nice. The owner of the home thought I blew the budget on these chairs alone and was very impressed when I told her the price!
We ordered this chair, love the style, looks great, but the leather is splitting where it wraps around the chrome. Had another one sent, same problem, and the width of the base of the second chair is about an inch shorter than the first!!
Debating whether to try one more time. Overstock has been great about this, but I am not optimistic that another chair will be any better.
Is the color more yellow or a true tan? t looks mustard yellow in the picture, but I do not want to get it and find out it is a true tan....asearcy07 on Jul 5, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Is this tan "Jericho" chair by the same manufacturer as the "Baxton Studio 'Marcel' Black Leather Accent Chair"? I am wondering just because the 'Marcel" chair has so many more reviews to go on. Thank youkatrinashops on Jun 4, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
