Opening Saturday, August 23  


From a single private collection, The Art of Seating presents seating furniture from the 19th, 20th, and early 21st centuries. The 43 chairs in the exhibition present a timeline of American design history. Including iconic chairs from well-known 20th-century designers and architects such as Frank Gehry, Charles and Ray Eames, and Isamu Noguchi, along with 19th-century designers John Henry Belter and the Herter Brothers firm. The Art of Seating tells the dynamic and engaging story of furniture design and production in the United States. Reynolda House is the exhibition's only venue that also exhibits a decorative arts collection in an original historic house setting.
