Gus Spanner Chair


Created in 1950 by Russell Spanner and is a classic or Canadian mid-century modern furniture design. After more than 50 years Gus has revived this iconic chair.

Why We Love It: A small scaled chair in numerous finish and fabric combinations, it is the perfect chair for that odd corner or small space you weren't sure what to do with. A lot of style in a small piece.

Dimensions: 21.5w x 24d x 29.5h

Product Description

Originally created in 1950 by Russell Spanner, the Lounge Chair with Arms has become a classic of Canadian Mid-Century Modern furniture design. Out of production for more than 50 years, Gus* worked in collaboration with the Spanner family to revive this iconic chair, carefully matching the construction, materials, and design details to stay true to the original in every way. The seat is woven strapping, and the frame is solid birch with exposed bolts and finger-joint details. Like the original, the Lounge Chair with Arms is built in Toronto and available in a variety of finishes. To commemorate the return of this design classic, the first 100 chairs produced will be part of a numbered, limited edition series.
