 Moving to set the minutes right with tentative touches that lift and linger

This elegant, rustic side chair can also be used as a kitchen table chair or dining chair. Hand crafted from Solid Certified Oiled Ash or Oak, it is a stunning example of exquisite British craftsmanship.

British designer David Irwin has designed this side chair from the Hardy Collection, with inspiration from two other 19th century chair designs: Captain’s Chair and Smokers Bow, both defined by their low-back design. This collection was also inspired by Thomas Hardy, the Dorset-born poet who wrote about the beauty of furniture in his poem, Old Furniture.

  • 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.
