Amish Contemporary Canterbury Windsor Side Chair - SKU#6050
Canterbury Windsor Chairs appear delicate, light, and extremely graceful, but are cleverly designed to offer both comfortable and sturdy seating in your dining room. Windsor Chairs represent a high point in the landscape of furniture design & construction, originating in England and first coming to Colonial America in about 1726.
This Amish Contemporary Canterbury Windsor Side Chair is a modern rendering of the original "Thumb-Back" or "Pierced Slat-Back" Windsor Chair that was originally developed circa 1820. In comparison, this modern chair retains the essence of the original Thumb-Back chair design, but features unadorned turnings rather than the more intricate Bamboo-style turnings of it's Colonial forefather.
