The Modern Windsor is the quintessential English wooden chair. A classic that has graced our homes since the 18th century.
The traditional Windsor has been stained, painted, deconstructed, and reimagined in all sorts of ways.
The British Windsor is traditionally made from a triumvirate of maple, poplar, and oak with a curved back and seat.

A Perfect Balance Between Old And New
The Windsor Chair is a quintessential British furniture classic that has graced our homes since the 18th century.
The Modern Windsor is a stylish deconstruction of the original design. Whilst drawing on the classic Windsor features, the Modern Windsor incorporates a more minimalist and often more angular look.
Timeless Style and Elegance
Modern Windsor design is easy to live with, instantly stylish and ideal for both period and contemporary homes. Thoughtfully placed, a Modern Windsor chair can offer the perfect balance between old and new. It's a look that can be combined carefully with other styles whether you're into design or just looking to add a Scandi feel to your home.
Designed in collaboration with British Chairmaker Dave Green, our Modern Windsor chair is beautifully handmade in locally sourced solid English ash.
Made in the traditional Windsor Chair way, as a form of stick chair as opposed to a joined chair, it features traditionally steam-bent back spindles with a generously sculpted back for comfort.
Our Modern Windsor Chair has the added comfort and luxury of a naturally soft upholstered seat. In keeping with the traditional craftsmanship of the hand carved frame, each seat is individually upholstered using traditional methods including webbing and tacked rolled edges.

Our Modern Windsor chair has a beautifully crafted and perfectly balanced shape to create an extremely versatile chair for any setting - as a lounge, bedroom, desk or dining chair. The style is timeless and will bring comfort and pleasure for generations to come.
