The Barrel Dining Chair was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright for the D. D. Martin House in Buffalo, New York in 1904. Wright revisited the tub chair in 1937, re-creating it with larger proportions for the Herbert F. Johnson residence to accommodate the expansive rooms and ceiling heights.

Like many other of Wright's furniture designs, Barrel features a back of linear lines providing a more intimate environment around the dining table. Its curved shape marks a departure from his previous work and is made from cherrywood, available in natural or with a black or walnut stain.

This design classic, from Cassina, includes a flared backrest, squared armrests and a double sided circular seat. The seat pad is made with a plastic material, polyurethane foam and polyester padding, and is upholstered in various fabrics and leathers in various colours.
