Frame of chromium-plated steel tubing. Seat of beech wood frame with rubber webbing. Upholstery: polyurethane with polyester filling. Cover in leather.

Bonaparte is one of the seldom cases in which the luxurious comfort of an upholstered chair has been successfully united with a tubular steel construction. The result communicates both ease and convenience. Actually conceived as a piece for drawing rooms, Eileen Gray found Bonaparte so pleasant that she used it for decades as her desk chair in her Paris home at Rue Bonaparte.
