Made in Wales.

The Welsh stick chair is distinct. Unlike the common Windsor chair, which is made in volume to a set of design standards, the stick chair is made individually. Working in rural West Wales, Chris Williams specializes in this primitive style of chair that dates back to the 13th century. Celebrating the idiosyncrasy of the stick chair, Williams works without a set plan, working with the natural character and curvature of the wood used.

The traditional Welsh stick chair typically features legs cut in a hexagonal shape, while Williams’ are designed in an exacting octagon. Each chair is made entirely by hand over the course of two weeks and is finished in black wax oil. As each chair is made individually, dimensions and finish may vary slightly.
