Italian Thonet Specialist: La Stanza del Re.

Thonet Rocking Chair 3

Thonet Rocking Chair no 3. Almost a baroque one!

La Stanza del Re. is an antique dealer based in Milan, Italy. He specializes in Thonet and other 19th century – beginning of 20th century bentwood chairs.

This brings the Thonet specialists featured here to three. The other two being Basel, Switzerland, based Dieter Staedli and Paris, France, based Manuel Guillaume of Au bon Usage

Update:

Commenter Geert Vanhoutte kindly informed us:

Sadly enough the owner of the shop “La stanza del Re” in Milan has closed his shop and sold all his pieces. There’s another antique store specialized in Thonet that is not mentioned here: Ulrich Fries, Bleibtreustrasse 53, 10623 Berlin. He’s been selling antique Thonet furniture for many decades and has the largest stock in the world I think. Well worth a visit ! It’s a pity he doesn’t have a website. There’s also an antique store in Vienna “City-Antik”, but they are only selling over-restored (ruïned) pieces at overrated prices…

  1. Hi,

    I am looking for a Thonet bentwood rocking chair 1910-20. Would you have such a thing available? Do you know where I might find one?

  3. Hi,
    I have my uncles chair, I’ve been told it’s a bentwood thonet chair, however I can’t seem to find another quite like it. He died last year so I’ve no information on where he got it or anything about it. Is there anything you can do to help be find out more information and value of it.
    Thankyou
    Helen
