The braced bow back - or hoop back - side chair makes an excellent dining room table chair. First introduced to the United States during the Federal Period, they were very popular throughout the states. These chairs are finished in distressed black milk paint.
The double rod Windsor, commonly referred to as the birdcage Windsor, originated in the early 1800's and has bamboo turnings.
The braced fan back side chair features turned stiles and hand-carved ears. Currently available in black or barn red milk paint.
The sack back arm chair, which dates from the 1760s, is wonderfully comfortable. These chairs are finished in distressed red milk paint, and have hand-carved knuckles.
The comb back arm chair is constructed similarly to the sack back except that the upper section continues straight up to the comb, rather than terminating in a hoop. The greater height provides more support to the neck and head.
