landmark chair with upholstery

Design Ward Bennett
Solid hardwood, upholstery
Made in the USA by Geiger®

Stately, softly curved, and confident, the Landmark Chair is one of designer Ward Bennett’s most well-known works. This sophisticated, graceful chair represents his ability to reduce a design to its essence—allowing function, craftsmanship, and, ultimately, beauty, to be its focus. While carved from solid ash hardwood, Landmark is both lightweight and durable.

While carved from solid ash hardwood, Landmark is both lightweight and durable. The chair’s classic English form is graciously scaled to the exact proportions drawn by Bennett and features meticulously detailed French upholstery. Landmark’s wide range of upholstery variations offers further versatility and adds style and comfort to both residential and working environments.

Ward Bennett's story is a remarkable one. His career began at age 13, when he quit school to work in the garment district in New York City. At 15, he designed his first clothing collection; at 16 he left for Europe, where he continued working on fashions. Simplicity and comfort were always his goals. Bennett designed more than 150 chairs, many of which have become classics. He is considered the first American to use industrial materials for home furnishings, well before the high-tech look of the 1970s became popular. He was hailed by the American Institute of Architects for "transforming industrial hardware into sublime objects." Many of Bennett's designs are in the Museum of Modern Art's permanent collection as well as in the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum; he is also in Interior Design magazine's Hall of Fame.

Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
