This chair design modifies the traditional Windsor chair form while maintaining construction and material practices. With seductive curves, and details translated from our boatbuilding techniques, the Richardson chair pairs well with a comfy sheepskin, a good read, or our Hunt coffee table.
Designed by Henry Richardson for SSBB, the chair takes the overall form of a continuous back Windsor chair but employs the vertical elements as continuous steam-bent uprights that stretch from the floor to the top rail to provide support and visual uniformity. Ash is traditionally used for the back and spindles on Windsor chairs because of the ease of bending and straight grain. With this piece we make use of Toronto's urban ash trees, brought down due to emerald ash borer beetles.
