Originally Designed in 1953 by Canadian designer Jacques Guillon, the Cord Chair has been out of production for more than 40 years. Avenue Road, a Toronto based manufacturer, has announced they will be re-issuing the chair, beginning in August of 2009.

Constructed in a solid maple wood frame and finished with either a walnut wood veneer or black lacquer, the chair’s material integrity is true to Jacques Guillon’s authentic design. The seat and back are fully strung in either white or black 8-strand braided cord.
