Reproduction Dining Chairs
Windsor Chairs, after which this bench is modeled, originated in early 1700s England. American Colonists got a peek at this innovative style in the 1720s and started making their own! Spindles and legs are attached to the seat via wedge construction. This bench is available in brown maple, cherry, and oak, as well as in a 3-wood combination with a poplar seat, hickory bow, and brown maple spindles and stretchers.
Shown in multi-wood construction with Faded Michael's finish, this bench is available in many other rich stains that show off wood's natural beauty. The style of this bench goes well with our Amish Windsor Arm Combback Chair, also available as a rocker, and our Amish Windsor Continuous Arm Chair.
18th century Windsor chairs used three or more wood types to withstand stresses on different parts of the chair while satisfying the body of its design. Woods were chosen for their structural qualities to provide the right strength, shape and support in each chair. Our multi-wood construction option replicates the method used to Construct Windsor chairs hundreds of years ago. This option provides a Windsor 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 woods creates strong, lightweight, proportioned chairs that last for decades.
