Our Modern Windsor Chair Collection
Adding a contemporary twist to a much loved classic
The Windsor is the quintessential English wooden chair. A classic that has graced our homes since the 18th century. The traditional Windsor has been stained, painted, deconstructed, and reimagined in all sorts of ways. The British Windsor is traditionally made from a triumvirate of maple, poplar, and oak with a curved back and seat.
A perfect Balance between Old and New
The Modern Windsor is a stylish deconstruction of the original design. Whilst drawing on the classic Windsor features, the Modern Windsor incorporates a more minimalist and often more angular look. Modern Windsor design is easy to live with, instantly stylish and ideal for both period and contemporary homes. Thoughtfully placed, a Modern Windsor chair can offer the perfect balance between old and new. It's a look that can be combined carefully with other styles whether you're into design or just looking to add a Scandi feel to your home
A stylish contemporary twist to the classic Windsor chair
Our collection of Modern Windsor chairs adds a stylish contemporary twist to the classic Windsor chair. In collaboration with British Chairmakers Sitting Firm, our two models, The Darwin and the Elkin, are beautifully handmade chairs in locally sourced solid English ash. Made in the traditional Windsor Chair way, these chairs are a form of stick chair as opposed to a joined chair, and feature traditionally steam-bent back sticks with a generously sculpted back for comfort.
As with all true Windsor chairs the seat is separate from the spindles and the legs but the models in our Modern Windsor Chair Collection have the added comfort of a naturally soft upholstered seat. Each seat is individually upholstered 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 stuffings to make them supremely comfortable. Each seat is then meticulously upholstered using the highest quality designer fabrics.
As well as contemporary style, we have added a designer luxurious feel to these traditionally inspired chairs with a naturally soft upholstered seat and designer fabric. Our Modern Windsor chairs have a beautifully crafted and perfectly balanced shape to create an extremely versatile chair for any setting - as a lounge, bedroom, desk or dining chair. Their style is timeless and will bring comfort and pleasure for generations to come.
Our Modern Windsor chairs are a marriage of great design, handmade quality and style. As contemporary classics, they create a striking set of upholstered chairs to grace any table or as a unique statement piece in any room.
