This exhibition featured selections from the Goldstein’s extensive collection of chairs.  It showcased seating furniture from the late nineteenth century through the twentieth century. The popular chair form revealed explorations of materials, balance, and comfort by noted architects and designers. Many artists who have normally focused on architecture or other aspects of decorative arts have found the chair to be a very attractive form to design.
