American Designer Paul Frankl wrote several design books and in them stated that the ideal modern chair should be designed with “continuous and unbroken lines”. The Vanity Bench follows such principles as the arms of the bench share one continuous line with the seat. The Vanity Bench exudes tones of the 1920s jazz age with its color and sleek design.
