Hardy Chair, Oak
The oak Hardy chair is a modern carver and a classic in the making, its single steam-bent back a true work of craftsmanship.
Two chair typologies from the 19th century, Thomas Hardy’s birth century, inspired its design: firstly the Captain’s chair originally a low-backed wooden armchair and secondly, the Smokers bow, a low back Windsor, often used in smoking rooms, public houses, barbers shops and cottages.
Old Furniture, a poem by Dorset-born Thomas Hardy, is an ode to beauty of furniture being handed down the generations. We think the oak Hardy chair would make Mr Hardy quite pleased.
Designed by David Irwin for Another Country.
