Style, status and craft – the ubiquitous dining chair

From the earliest documented chairs in ancient Egypt through to iconic designs such as the 17th-century Wainscot, the 18th-century Fauteuil, and early American Chippendales, no other item of furniture has been invested in with more care, design, and craftsmanship than the dining chair. Swaying between the practicality of form and in latter years, style over substance, the evolution of artisan techniques means that today neither comfort nor exquisite design needs to be compromised when selecting a chair.

The esteemed Turkish novelist and thinker, Mehmet Murat Ildan famously said “There is something much better than sitting on an empty chair and that is to watch it and to let it inspire you to think deeply!”.

We could sit all day and be inspired by the Julius Chair. The current vogue for Art Deco furniture, combined with an interior design love affair with velvet makes this chair one of the most sought after pieces in our collection. Perfect for a glamorous dining space or as a statement office chair. Shown with hoops in polished brass and seat upholstered in cotton velvet.

A mid-century modern classic, the Zukie Dining Chair is perfectly formed from a figured oak structure with a high gloss varnish. With accents in cream lacquer and finished with a high gloss varnish this piece offers a timeless and refined reinterpretation of the iconic 1950’s design aesthetic.

Exuding vintage glamour, the Chandra dining chair is both bold and daring. Polished brass bands delicately bind the chair highlighting the sculpted fluidity of the tight back upholstery.

Wormley dining chair pays a tribute to American design from the 50s and the modernist movement of that period. It is built-in satin sycamore wood with polished brass details, caned backrest and fabric seat. A modern chair that offers lightness and elegance in its lines.
