Windsor chairs originated in early 1700s England and were principally used outdoors, painted green so that chairs would blend into the landscape! American colonists started making their own Windsors, first in Philadelphia around 1740. These chairs became exceedingly popular by 1790, at which time Windsors could be seen in homes both rural and city-central.
DutchCrafters allows you to recapture the romance and impressive handiwork Windsor chairs were originally made with! This bar chair, as well as matching Windsor Dining Chair is handcrafted by Amish woodworkers in Ohio.
Windsor chairs of the 18th century 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. These woods were chosen for their structural qualities, providing the right strength, shape and support for each chair. Our multi-wood construction option replicates the method used to construct Windsor chairs hundreds of years ago.
Choose this option for a Windsor chair made with poplar in the seat, hickory for the bow and brown maple wood for the spindles and stretchers. These woods contribute to strong, lightweight, proportioned chairs that will serve you for generations.
