Reading Chair

Materials: English walnut and Danish cord seating

A generous and supremely comfortable reading chair perfect to while away an afternoon with a good read and a cup of tea. 

The chair is woven in Danish cord providing an elegant seat in an organic form. Finishing in walnut oil was an experiment that paid off, it is somehow appropriate that the natural oil from the tree be used to polish and preserve the wood in its next life. 

Technical notes: The legs are shaped from a single piece of walnut linking the seat rail and arm rest with a seamless curve. The back slats are constructed by laminating saw-cut walnut veneer sheets over a curved moulding, this provides strength and accuracy whilst also allowing for matching pieces of walnut to be selected to provide a gentle flow in pattern.
