Windsor chairs appeared in America around 1795 and quickly became the favorite at every level of society. Made with a combination of woods, Windsors were strong, light, comfortable and very durable. Using maple for the turnings, oak for the backs and arms, hickory for the spindles and poplar for the seats, our joiner has created chairs with all of the attributes that made them an American favorite. Chairs, Settles and Beds feature a worn, distressed and crackled painted finish which replicates the antique original. In addition to the most popular Black over Red color combination, this line can also be done In Red over Black, Brown over Red, Mustard over Black, just to name a few.. All Windsor Furnishings are made to order and ship by motor freight in 4-6 weeks, although this time frame can vary depending on the artisans work load. Call for special motor freight charges.
