Michael Thonet arrived in Vienna from Boppard am Rhein in the 1840s. Having initially collaborated on the furnishing of a number of palaces belonging to the upper nobility, he went on to mass-produce relatively low-cost furniture made of steam-bent wood. His bentwood chairs found their way from coffee houses into the homes of the middle classes and were also used at court.
