Set of Two Poul Cadovius PIA Dining Chairs for Royal Persiennen

Seat Weaving While RVing

Coming to a Town Near You

Caning Canada has restored this piece of functional art so you can make a statement as an accent chair, at your desk, or to complete your set.

The Danish cord is durable, comfortable to sit on, and ages beautifully.

Poul Cadovius designed the PIA Dining Chair for Royal Persiennen in 1958 and launched the chair in 1959.

Two are available, sold individually. 

He wanted to create a chair in the spirit of the time, inspired by other design chairs of the fifties, but lighter and more "petite," both in physical weight and design expression. The chair design has a "less is more" concept, focusing on the least possible material consumption while maintaining a high level of detail and excellent comfort.

The thin, conical-shaped solid wooden legs give a light visual expression, emphasized by two fine details; the hand-sanded rounding at the top of the back legs and the finger-jointed front legs. The woven laced natural Danish cord seat provides further depth and charter, and the backrest is moulded, providing optimal seating comfort.

Poul Cadovius was born in Frederiksberg in 1911. Originally trained as a saddler and upholster, Cadovius became interested in industrial design and established his furniture manufacturing company Royal Systems in 1945.

Cadovius purchased France & Son in the 1960s, credited with the industrialization of teak furniture production.

Cadovius renamed the company CADO.
