We fell in love with many of the vintage modern furniture collections presented by R 20th Century at Design Miami 2008. Specifically, one of our favorite furniture collections was from legendary Portuguese born Brazilian modern furniture designer Joaquim Tenreiro (often referred to as the “father” of modernist Brazilian furniture design).
Here we’ve picked three of our favorite 20th Century Joaquim Tenreiro chairs – visit R 20th Century to see more of his beautiful furniture design.
