Reproduction Dining Chairs
Rock away the afternoon in this Windsor Arm Rocker, made for comfort and in style. Windsor furniture was first made in the States in the 1740s and originated in England. Chairs were principally used outdoors and painted green with a substance made from white lead, oil, and verdigris pigment, blending chairs into the landscape.
This Windsor Arm Rocker is available in brown maple, cherry, oak or multi-wood construction.
18th Century Windsor chairs incorporated the use of three or more wood types to withstand stresses on different parts of the chair while satisfying the body of its design. Woods were selected for their structural qualities to provide the right strength, shape, and support for the chair. Our multi-wood construction option replicates the method used to construct Windsor chairs hundreds of years ago.
Select the multi-wood option for a chair built with poplar in the seat, hickory for the bow of the chair and brown maple wood for the spindles and stretchers. The use of these different woods creates strong, lightweight, proportioned chairs that last for decades.
The stationary version of this rocking chair can be found in our Amish Windsor Dining Chair. Call us with any questions or to start your order!
