by Eileen Gray, 1935
Bonaparte is one of the seldom cases in which the luxurious comfort of an upholstered chair has been successfully united with a tubulär steel construction. The result communicates both ease and convenience. Actually conceived as a piece for drawing rooms, Eileen Gray found Bonaparte so pleasant that she used it for decades as her desk chair in her Paris home at Rue Bonaparte.
