Amish Contemporary Bow Back Windsor Side Chair - SKU#3400
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 Bow-Back Windsor chair was so named due to it's unitary bowed back support rail.
This Amish Contemporary Bow-Back Windsor Side Chair is an interpretation of the classic Windsor Bow- or Loop-Back chair which appeared in many Colonial Period homes, but with sleek adaptations to appeal to more Contemporary styles and tastes. 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 the original Colonial bow-back chairs.
Characterized by smooth tapered turnings, a comfortably dished seat, and legs that are driven deeply into the seat for maximum stability and durability. Comfortable back support is ensured by the use of 7 ergonomically tapered back-spindles.
