Thomas Hardy, Dorset-born poet, paid ode to the beauty of furniture under the sensational poem Old Furniture. The poem in question has deliciously infected the minds of generations, feeding its way to David Irwin’s classic Hardy Armchair.
These originates from two chair typologies design dating back to the 19th century: Captain’s Chair and Smokers Bow. The first being a wooden, low-backed armchair and the second a low-back Windsor frequented in barber shops, public houses, cottages and smoking rooms.
The Hardy Armchair is Solid Certified Oiled Ash or Oak and proudly made in Britain. If you would like to equip the seat with cushioning then please get in touch.
