Thompson Dining Chair, Set of 2
by Gus Modern

At A Glance:
Gus Thompson Dining ChairA modern, understated dining chair inspired by the mid-century Eames Plywood Chair, the Thompson Dining Chair gives any dining area a classic modern flavor. Comes in a variety of seat and leg colors to match your dining room decor.

What's To Like:

  • The Thompson Dining Chair takes risks - and succeeds. Bringing several different design cues together in one chair is harder than it looks.
  • Upholstery! Our poor, sore hindquarters are happy to see this classy dining chair's padded seat and back.

What's Not to Like:
It'd be easy for us to just focus on the "looks good" aspect of this chair, but there are some who will absolutely dislike the Thompson Chair's appearance. Consider this a nod to those folks, whoever they are.

The Bottom Line:
The Thompson Dining Chair from Gus Modern bears the marks of its mid-century predecessors, and it bears them well.

    Contemporary and Practical

    Comments about Gus Modern Thompson Dining Chair:

    My wife and I have been searching for the right chairs for our small dining room table for quite some time. When we stumbled upon on the Thompson dining chair (made by Gus Modern), we knew we had found the right one. Initially, we had our eyes on the walnut and white combo but it was out of stock so we went for the second option, which was black and walnut. I believe the black and walnut combo is more long-lasting than the white as white pieces tend to get yellowish over time.

    I would say the chairs are of good quality (The chairs are designed in Canada but manufactured in China). The workmanship is very good and the vinyl portion of the chair looks to be very durable to last a long time. The chairs are beautifully designed but back rest is a little smaller than the pictures we saw on the website. The vinyl sitting area is padded so it is comfortable to sit on for extended period of time. Overall, it is a very practical and good quality chair that should be able to withstand daily usage for a very long time.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery was done by UPS and it was on time. The chairs came in two big boxes which the chairs were covered in plastic bags and had big stryofoam blocks inside the boxes for protection. The boxes came in without any damage but one complaint I have is that the stryofoam blocks are so huge that they took me a good 30 mins to break them down into smaller pieces. During the breakdown the process, the styrofoam built up a strong static charge. It got to the point where a lot of foam was sticking to my fingers and body and it was a pain to get them off me. Also, styrofoam can't be recycled. It will take me weeks to months, little by little, to get rid of them as I have only a small garbage can.

    Mid-Century Quality at 21st-Century Price


    from Tucson, AZ

    Comments about Gus Modern Thompson Dining Chair:

    I'd been racking my brain for the better part of three months about what Mid-Century Modern dining set I should get. I was choosing between three different chairs: Eames DCW, Cherner Side Chair and Gus Modern Thompson Dining Chair. I ended up purchasing a Cherner Table and four Thompson Dining Chairs. Why didn't I purchase Cherner chairs to compliment my $2500+ table? I'll tell you exactly why.

    I have many authentic and original MCM items spread throughout my house. I rarely sacrifice quality or top designer labels. When it came to selecting dining chairs, I found the above three mentioned chairs all high quality and comfortable. Because of the lack of upholstery in the Eames chair, I soon realized that meals that last upwards of an hour (and probably even less for my guests of more generous porportions) would become uncomfortable on a daily basis. I then was mulling over upholstered Cherner chairs, but I simply didn't like the chair's form when upholstered.

    My final criteria was quality and durability. While the other MCM furniture in my house rarely sees daily use, these chairs certainly would and they would be guaranteed to be used by house guests in all shapes and sizes. As such, I began to realize I'd have immense anxiety if some of these people didn't baby $750+ chairs like I did. Would somebody lean back to hard? Would somebody sit down too hard? Would people spill food on them?

    Try enjoying a meal when you have people sitting in multiple $750+ chairs with all of the above concerns.

    So because I simply fell in love with their styling and felt comfortable with their shockingly low price point to not baby them to the level of my other furniture, I purchased four white upholstered Gus Dining Chairs.

    It was the right decision.

    These chairs are quite simply beautiful. Those not well-versed in the MCM realm would easily mistake them for chairs four times the price and for good reason -- the build quality is fantastic. Each chair feels sturdy and well made, nothing is lose, there are no imperfections. The walnut veneer has been well-produced and matches the quality of similar chairs. The vinyl upholstery is top quality, feeling and looking like real leather.

    And finally, they're just darn comfortable.

    Gus Modern has impressed with their Thompson Chair. It's designer quality at a perfectly reasonable price. I don't see these as an "alternative" to higher priced chairs, but simply rather another option that stacks up side-by-side in quality and design.

      • Q:

        These dining room chairs look comfortable to sit in for long periods, even for people who need to watch their posture for back strain, or who shift in their seat somewhat frequently. Are they? Are they moderately cushioned, and is the vinyl, as it's upolstered on the chair, not easily torn or misshaped?

          They are! Moderately cushioned with the vinyl seat and back. Never heard of one ever being torn or misshapen. Gus Modern is based in Canada and makes high quality furniture. Contact and we can find you a local retailer near you where you might be able to sit in a Thompson Chair. Unless you happen to live in TN. In that case come on down!
