Continuous Arm Windsor chair


This Continuous Arm Windsor chair is a variant of a traditional American style well suited to modern or cottage interiors and not commonly available in the UK. The arms and back hoop are made from a single piece of timber (Not laminated) bent to shape in three dimensions, producing an elegant,strong and comfortable chair. The oval seat is sculpted out of solid Oak and the back spindles closely follow the grain of the wood, to increase their strength and suppleness. These can be made with plain turnings.

This example is made in natural Oak sealed and waxed.
