Introducing the Bognor Windsor arm chair. Whereas traditional North American Windsors have delicate sweeping lines this chair has a cleaner, perhaps more robust, contemporary appearance. Made using the same exact materials and techniques that established the North American Windsor chair as the gold standard of comfort and quality, the spindles are simpler, slightly heavier, and the back bow is a little heavier, and all of the turned elements are more streamlined.
Like all my Windsor-style chairs, this is finished in your choice of milk paint, basic or two-toned distressed, and sealed with tung oil.
Why call it the Bognor? Well, just as the former village of Sydenham had to rename itself “Bognor” to avoid being confused with the better known Sydenham near Kingston, this chair is different enough from the Sack Back to warrant its own name.
Based on the Sack Back arm chair, the seat style and overall dimensions are similar:
37 ½” Tall
20 ½” Deep
Seat Height – 18”
Weight – c. 5.5kg
