Deconstructed French Napoleonic Chair

Inspired by the unadorned beauty of their grandfather's 19th-century wing chair ? liberated from its velvet upholstery and the frame exposed ? the Van Thiels replicated the Old World artistry in the French Napoleonic Chair. Character belies comfort. A distressed walnut frame, accented with nailheads, is complemented by the texture of burlap and antiqued cotton. This is furniture for the ages.

* Circa 1870, with a distinctive hoop back, bowed seat and bobbin-turned front legs
* Built by hand with a kiln-dried, corner-blocked solid walnut frame
* Clad in cotton dyed to lend an antiqued appearance, with visible whipstitching and nailheads
* Two layers of burlap cover the back and the rail below the seat
* The walnut frame and legs are smoothly sanded and given a matte finish to look as they would before the final stain and polish; nicks, imperfections and natural variations in color are to be expected
* Wide jute strapping supports the 8-way hand-tied seat spring
* Cotton is treated for stain-resistance
* Two front legs sit on non-locking casters
* Seat cushions are a down-blend fill; a thin foam core wrapped with 80% feathers and 20% down
* More...


* 29"W x 34"D x 35"H
