The James Chair in Ink


The James chair, an elegant replica of 18th Century French Furniture, reflects the dynamic evolution of styles during this period. In a matter of decades, 18th Century France transitioned from the Baroque style to the Rococo's intricate curves. This ornate period, swiftly succeeded by the Neoclassical era, characterized by straight lines and rigid geometries.

The solid wood frame, meticulously constructed, ensuring it is screwed, dowelled, and glued to provide robust support for the jute and hessian webbed seat. Oil gilded in Dutch metal leaf in order to enhance the finish, providing durability compared to other techniques. The final touch includes a seat cushion with soft foam, ensuring a formal shape and adding support.

Handcrafted and upholstered in Athena Toile in the colour Ink, this fabric is a reinterpretation of a 18th Century French neoclassical toile. It beautifully depicts the goddess Athena among ancient oak and native British birds. Lastly, offered in a choice of four vibrant colour options.

We take pride in building and designing pieces like the James chair in our workshops for over 50 years, therefore continuing to reinforce our commitment to the artistry and craftsmanship of traditional upholstery.
