The design for the Urban Country Chair has evolved over my 40 years as a chair maker and furniture designer in Toronto and Collingwood. While my earlier chair designs were more traditional, this new chair combines the time-honoured craftsmanship methods I have always used with a more contemporary look. The Urban Country Chair incorporates the clean and open lines of mid-century modern furniture design while maintaining the familiar elegance of older chair designs. The result is an elegant yet sturdy chair that is at the same time lightweight and comfortable. Its bentwood frame, made from a single piece of oak, and the appealing weave of its fibre splint seating, sets this chair apart from others, making it a unique and appealing addition to any city or country setting.
