Here and here. Here are some examples of how to use spare or odd Thonet chairs in any room. • 1 San Francisco Girl By The Bay. Here, two Thonet chairs flank the bed. • 2 Loft Life. Here a spare bentwood chair serves as a desk chair. • 3 Katy Elliott. Designer Tom Scheerer uses a bentwood chair as a bedside table. • 4 House Beautiful. OK, so this isn't a chair but I couldn't resist another gem from designer Tom Scheerer, who pairs a willowy, sinewy bench with the austere lines of a steel four poster bed. • 5 Here a spare Thonet chair serves as part of a mix and match set of dining room chairs.
