In the last few years as these countries have one by one joined the European Union, the costs of making these very labour intensive chairs has increased considerably for these factories, giving them no alternative but to increase their prices. This has led to some UK banqueting furniture suppliers looking to factories in China and Malaysia to produce copies of these chairs but without the many years of experience of the traditional manufacturers, the quality can be very variable. Often, where the European factories would use steam bending to shape the elegant curved forms of the banquet chair, the Chinese and Malaysian manufacturers use simpler wood joining methods, for example finger jointing or even butt jointing, methods which are not nearly as strong as the steam bending process which produces the part without affecting the strength or integrity of the wood. Therefore purchasing these cheaper chairs can often be a false economy and can end in very early replacement of an expensive investment.
The designer of the Bertoia chair, Harry Bertoia, knew he was on to something by experimenting with the shape and materials used to construct the average chair. He wanted to re-invent the way modern day seating was perceived by homeowners and interior designers. While many homeowners simple want to choose the best style of chair with the most comfort and stability for their interior needs, Bertoia wanted to exceed these expectations. The Bertoia wire chair, Bertoia side chair and Bertoia diamond chair are able to exceed the expectations of interior design experts because they breathe a new life into the addition of seating in a room. The unique and creative design and construction that uses fresh shapes and materials allows a designer or homeowner to be creative with seating arrangements while still sticking with an overall design theme.
