The Importance of a Chair
Learn about the history of high backed chairs and why they can suit any room in a home.
High backed state chairs came into fashion in the late 17th century during the reign of William and Mary. In wealthy households, chairs like these were used more as statement chairs and were often found in the sumptuous surroundings of a bedroom where trusted courtiers and allies were received and entertained. Rich patterned velvets and hand coloured leather adorned many of these chairs in time-honoured tradition.
Today, this style of chair is more commonly viewed as being suited to any room in your home. Our chair is distinguished by the intricate quality of hand carving, the pollard oak veneer inlay and the recessed panels on the legs and arms. With its subtle distressing this makes for an aged version of a regal chair.
