Gerrit Rietveld: Red Blue Chair

The Rietveld Red Blue chair is one of those pieces of furniture that you like looking at but are nervous to sit in. It looks uncomfortable with its oddly angled back and flat wood seat. You're wrong, it is one of the more surprisingly comfortable chairs. I don't think copies of this chair are being made, so you'll have to find an original, or make your own copy. The originals are most likely very expensive, so I hope you're good with the autoCAD. I own a copy that my grandfather made years ago. He made a couple, including a child-sized one for one of my cousin's kids. Everyone who sees it asks about it, and I make them sit in it to realize how comfortable it is.
