Amish Heritage Franklin Sack Back Windsor Side Chair - SKU#3440
Windsor Chairs represent a high point in the landscape of furniture design & construction. The original English Windsor Chair has traveled extensively throughout the centuries, first coming to America in about 1726. Since then, several stylistic and structural adaptations have evolved including Arrow-Back, Bow-Back, Comb-Back, Fan-Back, Paddle-Back, Sack-Back, Wheat-Back, and many other Windsor Chair varieties. The original Sack-Back Windsor Chair was so-named because a bag or sack was slipped over the top bow to halt drafts in houses that were less well-sealed than today's.
This Amish Heritage Franklin Sack-Back Windsor Arm Chair is an interpretation of the specific classic Windsor Bow- or Loop-Back chair which appeared in Colonial-era homes in and around Philadelphia. By using 100% premium American hardwood components combined with modern glues and a range of quality finishes (see thumbnails above) it actually surpasses the beauty and durability of those original sack-back chairs.
Characterized by deeply carved turnings, a comfortable deeply dished seat, and legs that are driven through the seat then wedged for maximum stability and durability. Comfortable back and arm support is ensured by the use of 7 ergonomically arched back spindles.
