Modern materials like plastic and plywood permitted creative minds and revolutionary concepts in design to flourish. This was the time where wood stepped down as the prime medium for manufacturing heavy-duty furniture pieces. Mass production facilities had also made it possible to create elegant furniture on a grand scale, which have made it accessible to a larger socioeconomic cross section of the world’s population.

Plywood, a revolutionary material in furniture manufacturing, consists of thin layers of wood bonded together.

This material has made designers like Charles and Ray Eames highly popular with their designs. With its naturally smooth finish, simple look, and elegant organic curves, plywood furniture pieces like, EHO Studios Polished Plywood Bar Stool with Chrome Legs, can offer a retro modern look and feel to any space.
