Chris Wegerif Orkney Chair with Green Fabric Seating, Dutch, 1900

Lounge Chairs
20th century

An Art and Crafts chair from around 1900 by Dutch designer Chris Wegerif. The model of this chair is based on the traditional chairs made on the Orkney Islands, North of Scotland. The Orcadian farmers built them for their crofts and the early chairs are low. In this way the person sitting in it was lower to the ground to avoid the air from the peat fire that was common in Orkney houses. The high back in straw was created to protect them from draft and gives more comfort. The walnut chair has a high and curved woven cane seating and a green fabric seating.
