Beachcomber Spindle Back Chair in Walnut

$2,300per item

About

During the 18th century, a profound design movement took place in Wales. It was led by peasant-carpenters who, simply in an effort to create a practical seating option, produced one of the most elegant spindle back chairs of that time. It is known as the 'Welsh Stick Chair' and it's makers are thought to be the forefathers of the Shakers. We appreciate the paired down, meditative lines so much we decided to make our own variation of the form. Complete with shaved spindles and a hand shaped seat. The chair begins with a stack of carefully selected lumber; chosen for its clarity and straightness of grain. The boards are milled by machine, then shaped by hand to form exacting joinery. Working over the pieces with well tuned hand tools gives the wood a low sheen unattainable with sandpaper. Finished with a natural oil and wax blend. Shown in walnut, also available in white oak.

Customization Options

-Available in walnut (shown) and white oak

About The Maker

West of Noble is a Los Angeles based design practice dedicated to the pursuit of making wooden furniture by hand. It was founded by designer and itinerant woodworker Greg Mitchell in Greenpoint, Brooklyn in 2011, but is inspired by a lifetime of travel, time spent on the sea, various odd jobs, wooden sailboats, and friends and family; without whom the company would not exist. Our designs are guided by the making process, and the unpredictable nature of our chosen material. We aim for the simplest line in each piece, believing it is only finished when there is nothing left to take away.
