Stately seating

Throughout Western history, armchairs have been a symbol of state and dignity. They were incredibly elaborate and ornate, decadently upholstered and often encrusted with precious stones.

In the 12th century, this custom was brought to China and applied with an Eastern sense of beauty and appreciation. Constructed from earthy hard woods, the chairs' structure was constructed and joined ingeniously (they did not use glue or nails), and the shape was gracefully curved.

Loving detail was put into carvings in the legs, and symbolism was portrayed prominently; through engraved characters on the backs, and stunning lacquers.

The armchairs you find here are replications of these old antiques. The techniques used to construct them remain the same however, and have been handed down for generations with only slight variations in design.

Bar Stools

Our wooden Bar Stools are based on the classic Chinese farmers' stools found in the countryside.

They come at a maximum of 32” in height and can be cut down to 20” high.

Each bar stool is constructed from solid elm wood, and is coated in black or red lacquer (both finishes feature our signature distressed edging). You can also choose an unfinished bar stool and choose from any of our available stains.

The concave design of the extra wide seat is both good looking and a pragmatic design feature making the bar stools very comfortable, especially in comparison to other hard topped stools (wooden, plastic, metal or otherwise).
