Modern Windsor Design
The award-winning Darwin Armchair is a stylish deconstruction of the quintessential Windsor chair. Designed by Dave Green and produced in collaboration with British Chairmakers ‘Sitting Firm’, the Darwin draws on the classic Windsor features but incorporates a more contemporary twist. It has pride of place in our Modern Windsor Collection.
Made in the traditional Windsor Chair way, the Darwin Armchair is a form of stick – rather than joined - chair and features traditionally steam-bent back spindles with a generously sculpted back for comfort. The frame is beautifully handcrafted in either English hand-polished oak or English ash with a natural oiled or lacquered finish.
Crafted using traditional Windsor joinery techniques, our Darwin has the added luxury and comfort of a naturally soft upholstered seat. Each seat is individually made using traditional methods including webbing, bridle ties and tacked rolled edges.
Each seat pad is crafted using natural stuffing materials including hessian, pure wool and coir for supreme comfort. We only use premium quality fabrics either of your choosing or from our selected designer fabrics such as Matthew Williamson, Christian Lacroix, Liberty London and Josef Frank. Each inspiring print will add a touch of luxury to any room.
Versatile chair for any setting
The Darwin Modern Windsor Armchair is a unique crossover design, a perfect blend between classic and contemporary style. The beautifully crafted and perfectly balanced shape makes the Darwin an extremely versatile chair for any setting from bedroom to office and everywhere in between.
The Darwin Modern Windsor Armchair is available in English ash, oak or walnut with a traditionally hand-polished finish. Do please get in touch for more information.
