Historical Reference. We hopped the free bus to IKEA this past weekend and will share some new finds in the next couple of days. First up is the OGLA chair. The shape is almost pure Thonet (Vienna Cafe Chair -- the brace on the legs is different) but the material keeps the price IKEA-friendly...

The OGLA forwent expensive bentwood and is made of a wood and plastic composite. Wood fibers and propene plastic are bonded to create a reinforced polypropylene, giving the chair a smooth but visually textural finish:

The OGLA is only $29.99 and was super sturdy. We like this modern riff on a design classic!
