Wright is pleased to present A Seat for One: Historical Stools form the JF Chen Collection. Ranging from obscure to canonical, rugged to precious, this vast archive highlights the often overlooked and overused, humble and historic, stool. Amassed by the visionary dealer and collector Joel Chen, this sprawling sampling features works from across the globe—spanning centuries of design—crafted by well-known masters and anonymous artisans alike. Selected for their aesthetic beauty and ubiquitous functionality, the examples offered here elevate this most ancient seating form to new heights.
