Eileen Gray Non-Conformist Chair

Eileen Gray is undoubtedly a name already familiar to fans to modernist design. The Bibendum Chair is her most famous work but just as representative of her progressive work is the Non-Conformist Chair.

Designed back in 1926, its asymmetrical shape was at the cutting edge of experimental design, defying the conventions of furniture design, hence its name. Whilst it won’t exactly shock people today, it is still an eye-catching design.

Many online stockists have a version of this chair so it is worth shopping around to find the best quality or value according to your budget. Modern Classics Direct are selling their version/copy of the Non-Conformist for £499 with a choice of colours for the leather upholstery, although in my opinion, you can’t beat the black.
