RietveldRed Blue Chair Variations.

In a sense the whole De Stijl has been defined in later years by Rietveld's Red Blue chair. It has entered the hallowed ground of becoming a 'design icon', never to be messed with again. Which is total crap. If Rietveld himself hadn't messed around with the wood original there would have been no Red Blue chair. He didn't stop there; he made this chair in several sizes, & did other versions. What's good enough for Gerrit is good enough for me.

So this page is dedicated to showing other variations possible. We would be happy to produce the chair in ANY finish you want, feel free to ask.

Above left is a white version of the earlier version of the wood Red Blue chair, with side panels. Above right is another Rietveld variant. The proportions differ a bit & all the wood is rounded section (the orginal being square section wood). While the original chair looked like it could be mass produced, it's unusual shape & finishing meant it wasn't. This version of the chair meant it is even more bespoke, as all the components had to be produced square section first & then rounded. But interesting all the same.

This is a child's version of the Red Blue chair, made by an American maker. It is so cute; you just know this would have made Rietveld smile, having 6 children himself.

Some fun colour versions of the chair, even bright pink. The bottom left photo shows it in more 'tasteful' colours of black & grey.
