Beautifully Crafted. Built to last.

Choosing new chairs or bar stools is not only a big decision, it is also an investment. There are a lot of things to consider, from the style you like, to the firmness of the seat, the quality of the materials and the craftsmanship.

This is why we set out to create beautifully crafted bespoke dining chairs and bar stools that will not only perfectly fit your home, and are supremely comfortable to sit on, but will also last for years to come.

The most comfortable seats …… naturally

As seating specialists, we make every chair and bar stool by hand. We employ traditional craftsmanship skills to create each individual seat. We only use the highest quality natural materials that are responsibly and sustainably sourced and conform to regulatory standards.

Traditional Woodcraft Skills

Our carved chair and bar stool frames are made from
solid-wood, either kiln-dried beech or locally sourced English hardwood ash and oak. Our skilled team use time-honoured traditional woodcraft and joinery skills, including mortise and tenon joints, to ensure our frames will last year in year out.

Our 100% Natural Latex

We take your comfort very seriously. We understand that when you are looking for new dining chairs or bar stools, your first consideration is that they are truly comfortable to sit on. 

Each of our handmade seats is crammed with natural stuffing materials and contain pure sheep wool and ginger coir combined with a thick layer of 100% natural latex. We never use cheap polyurethane foam fillings can which contain harmful chemicals and are non-biodegradable.

This breathable Natural Latex, most commonly associated with luxury mattresses and toppers, is not only wonderfully soft to sit on, it also provides firm support and is incredibly durable.

We are proud to be one of the first British Chairmakers to use it in all our naturally soft seats.

Refresh Not Replace

All our chairs and bar stools are not only individually made to order but they are made to last.

We know that over the years you may move house or decide to redecorate, or simply fall in love with a new designer fabric. This is why we offer a Refresh Service.

Our team of Master Upholsterers create each seat the traditional way using layers and layers of wonderfully soft, natural stuffings.

The best part is each layer can easily be replaced and refreshed. If ever you would like to change your fabric, we will simply remove remove it from the seat and replace it with another of your choosing.

If you would like to change the colour of your frames, our expert polishing team will hand sand the solid-wood frames and re-paint them in any colour you like.

We hope you will never replace your Gabriella James Chairs or Bar Stools. That they will bring comfort to your home for years to come and be a daily companion that brings a smile to your face each time you sit down.
