This chair goes by many names:

  • ladder back chair
  • post and rung chair
  • green wood chair
  • plain matted chair

Whatever the name, this form contains a timeless elegance and lightness. The chair is completely made by hand, from a newly felled tree, using riving, splitting and shaving tools. All parts are shaved along the lines of the grain. It is this, coupled with the green-wood joinery that gives this chair exceptional strength and durability. It is an heirloom piece that will perform for decades.
