The community is abuzz with the talk of The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design! Featuring more than 40 iconic chairs, this exhibition carries visitors through three centuries of American design that tell the dynamic and engaging story of the history, design, and culture of American seating.

The Art of Seating offers a unique opportunity to compare the decorative art on view in the gallery to the furnishings of Reynolda's historic house collection, considering the domestic role of chairs in American culture. Browse our online gallery of Chairs at Reynolda now on view in the digital wing.
