Although Gerrit Rietveld is not as well known as other renowned architects such as Mies Van der Rohe or Le Corbusier, his contribution to the world of design was very significant, being the red and blue chair, also known as Rietveld chair, the most important work representative. The idea of the architect when designing the chair was to try to create something beautiful from simple parts, all of them obtained from the same wooden board, although as he himself recognized later, while he was designing it, he never thought that could become an icon of design that would influence architecture, as it was.

When we have the economic possibility of acquiring furniture of a certain historical or design value, it is important to know and be able to place them as the stars of our interior decoration.
