Antique Armchairs, Single Chairs & Pairs of Antique Chairs

Antique chairs were made in many different woods, and come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes. Wainscot chairs are early examples from the 17th century (or before) and are in oak, often of heavy construction with a throne like stature as they were very much status symbols from a time when most people sat on stools or benches.

The range of antique armchairs, single and pairs of chairs we stock typically includes:
  • 17th century oak backstool chairs (so called because they developed from the joined oak stool by the addition of taller back uprights and a panel to form the back)
  • Attractively designed antique chairs in walnut or mahogany from the Chippendale period, or more generally Georgian
  • Antique Windsor chairs in yew wood, or ash and elm
  • Country made antique armchairs, single chairs and pairs from the 18th and early 19th centuries in oak, ash or other country woods
  • Early 19th century rush-seated carvers and side chairs
We also have the occasional exceptional chair, such as an elaborately carved Charles II Carved Walnut Open Armchair, stamped in six places with the maker’s initials.
