Elegant and comfortable, our Lolling Chair is inspired by late 18th century neoclassical leisure forms. Martha Washington owned one at Mount Vernon. The cyma-crest, concave armposts, tapered front legs and swept rear legs creat a sensuous objet-de-art. The back is convexly curved for lumbar support. The seat rails are through-tenoned and wedged for strength.The well cushioned upholstery is neatly and correctly crafted with the client's fabric.
An heirloom quality chair such as our Lolling Chair is rarely crafted today as it is a challenge to build.

An investment in fine handmade furniture suggests a conversation between the craftsman and client. Serious inquiries deserve detailed answers.
