The reflection chair is a statement chair, comfortable and elegant in any room. Its framework features traditional joinery techniques while the seat is built of a modern and lightweight bent lamination reminiscent of the designs ushered in by the Eames'. 

Customizable panels add a pop of color and intrigue: glass, acrylic, or metal.

Care Tips

All furniture pieces come with our recommended wood cleaning solution. Wood furniture should never be cleaned with harsh chemical cleaners, abrasive surfaces, or too much water. Be sure to dust, wipe, and dry with a soft cloth.

Wood is a natural material that is subject to environmental changes. Heavy air conditioning and direct sunlight can be particularly tough on natural wood pieces. Wherever possible plan to offset intense, direct impact of these conditions.

Interior Residential Fabrication Warranty

We provide a two (2) year structural warranty for interior, residential uses of our hardwood furniture, which begins on the date of delivery. If, within the Warranty Period, your furniture fails structurally or develops large cracks in the joinery, we (JOHI LLC) will at our own option implement repair or replacement.

Finishes are not warrantied. Natural wear and tear should be expected, as no finish is completely resistant to marks or scratches.

Note: This warranty does not include misuse, failure to upkeep, acts of god (or children), water damage, mildew, normal wear, freeze damage, pests, or if the furniture is used in a commercial setting.
