It’s been a while since we sat in a classroom, but we’d happily go back to school if we could sit in one of Zangra’s cheery, colorful school chairs, made in Belgium.
Owner Eve van Dyck, an architect, calls her online shop Zangra “a catalog of authentic objects.” She started Zangra when she had difficulty sourcing retro-inspired, reasonably priced fixtures for a project; she contacted a maker of porcelain lighting sockets, ordered a hundred to sell online, and her business was born. She now carries an assortment of new and vintage products for the home, including a line of school chairs made in Belgium and available in a variety of sizes, configurations, and colors. See the full line at Zangra.
