The likes of George Washington, John Adams and Benjamin Franklin all owned this style of chair.
This version is called the Kimble. It's named after a neighbouring village of High Wycome in Buckinghamshire. The chair uses traditional Windsor chair making techniques in order to further the story and the evolution of the English Windsor chair. The contrast of the black walnut seat on this otherwise ash chair, attractively highlights the wedge tenon detail where the leg intersects with the top of the seat.
