On this old viol, too, fingers are dancing

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 it’s way to David Irwin’s classic Hardy Bar Stool.  

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 Bar Stool is Solid Certified Oiled Ash or Oak and proudly made in Britain.

  • Do not use spirits, bleaches or any other chemical cleaners to clean the timber. Please ensure that direct contact with hot objects is avoided by using tablemats. Avoid spillages and do not use any corrosive products such as bleach anywhere near the timber. Any spillages should be wiped clean as quickly as possible. Once the immediate spillage is cleared, ensure that the whole surface is wiped clean.
    For long-term general maintenance, periodic reapplication of wax is required. Ideally, the furniture should be waxed once every six months to a year. You will need to use a clear hard wax. We recommend getting professionally done if you are unsure.
