The Panton Classic Chair turns 50!

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Panton Classic Chair. Envisioned by Verner Panton and crafted from a single piece of plastic, it’s certainly a iconic furniture piece in modern design.

Striking as it is stylish - it would definitely strike up some conversations in my house - at first, I really didn’t think anything of them but I think they’ve grown on me. Now, I might even consider getting one however, I think B would need a little convincing. Here’s my tribute... starting with the original classic.

White with wood or white with with is my favorite combination -


Here are some colour combinations...

Good for outdoors too!

Oops, I just realized in one of my posts, I called it the Pantone chair! Ha ha.

Either way, I love them! I want two white ones - one at either end of my (future) harvest table and then white Eames chairs filling in the rest of the table!

Very sexy chair for sure :-)

I also like the combination of the white chairs with wood. And the bright green ones are pretty sweet too -- they look great on the patio :-)
