Club Chair with Walnut Banded Barrel Back and Hand-Turned, Tapered Legs

$2,125per item

About

Our barrel form, fit to your body, sits atop four hand-turned and tapered legs. As the back band meets the line of the arm and joins the face frame, a three-way mitered joint unites each element. Converging to a point, the hand-cut joint emphasizes the attention to detail we value in every piece. This design comes upholstered in an unbleached, organic cotton canvas. Upholstery is always alternatively available in customer's own material; please contact us for details. If your time frame is a constraint, please be in touch to discuss possibilities. This chair, as well as the loveseat version of the design, is available for customization in any of our responsibly sourced North American hardwoods, including storm downed Kentucky Walnut and Ash from dead standing trees killed by the virulent emerald ash borer, an Asian beetle decimating American forests. If ordering multiple chairs, please inquire for volume, lead-time and cost. Furniture is both an aesthetic object and one that must fulfill its function, so the finishes we use reflect beauty and durability equally, without compromising a consciousness towards our environment. We believe the natural beauty of wood is best displayed without the application of stains. Layer by layer, we hand rub our clear tung oil based finishes into the wood. Our edition furniture is handcrafted from wood with unique stories, shared through traditional joinery and a considered modern aesthetic. Each piece comes with a history of the tree and details of the design. While designed jointly by the two of us, Celia Gibson & Michael Moran, our woodwork, from turned legs to hand-cut joints, is built entirely by Michael in our Hudson Valley workshop. All the crisp upholstery details are completed by the skilled craftspeople at Ibri's Upholstery, who also reside in the Hudson Valley. We are proud to say a donation is made to the Arbor Day Foundation for each piece of furniture we build; these donations plant trees and support educational programs.

Customization Options

Please be in touch to discuss creating this design in any of the story-driven, responsibly sourced American hardwoods we have in our wood storage, including, but not limited to, Walnut (as shown), Ash (as shown in the slideshow), Cherry and Oak, all in our tung oil finish. Customer's own material is always an option; the material selected may dictate an additional charge for upholstery. Tufting may be required on some fabrics in order to keep the tailored line of the chair's inside curve.

About the Maker

Moran Woodworked Furniture

In operation since 2004, at Moran Woodworked Furniture we are committed to honoring the natural beauty of wood through traditional craftsmanship, the use of exclusively sustainable wood and a modern approach to design. We—Michael Moran and Celia Gibson—design and build each unique object one piece at a time, cutting every joint, chisel in hand, in our Hudson Valley, New York, home and workshop. From standing tree to finished furniture, our vision relies on an immersive, hands on participation through each considered part of the process. Our bespoke and limited edition furniture begins with the material we choose to work with: sustainable wood. Our wood tells a story, and its history—where it stood and why it came down—is written in its grain and marks an obligation for us to use it thoughtfully and to share each unique story. We know exactly where every single piece of wood in our workshop has come from, where it grew. A collaboration is at work: natural characteristics, idiosyncrasies of individual boards drive our design decisions just as our designs inform the wood we consider for a project. We intend that each functional, custom work of art is a composition brought to life by the judicious selection and placement of sustainable wood. This collaboration assures longevity by employing time-tested joinery meant to last generations, offering a flexibly over time in changing conditions. We hope our compositions reflect a sense of timelessness seen through a modern lens.
