Old Furniture, a poem by Dorset born Thomas Hardy, is an ode to beauty of furniture being handed down the generations, and David Irwin's Hardy Armchair is a classic in the making. 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. The armchair comes with a seat and back cushion, upholstered in 100% wool fabric made by Bute. The padding is made in the UK from all natural fibres.
Designed by David Irwin.
Crafted in UK.

We use a traditional wood oil finish followed by wax, applied by even application to the timber planks. This finish seals the pores of the timber, enhancing the natural structure of the wood and forming a water repellent protection against everyday wear and tear. This finish deepens the natural colour of the timber. One important benefit of this finish is the relative ease with which damage is repaired, as the timber can be reapplied with wax at any moment. We recommend you use only products supplied or approved by Another Country. Download the care instructions.
Everything we sell, including our mattresses, is handmade using superb materials and time-honoured techniques that ensure a product that will last a lifetime. Download the warranty.
