Montgomery Chair
33.5" height x 30" width x 30" depth

In the early 1700s, upholstered easy chairs were the most costly seating furniture available. They were designed with “wings” for protection from drafts in poorly heated rooms. The Montgomery chair, created around 1800, is a more delicate version of its predecessor. With a tall, straight, upholstered back, it closely resembles a lady’s lolling chair of the period but maintains the sweeping arms of the earlier form. The cone-shape vertical arm support is typical of New England. Hickory Chair artists have adapted the design of Winterthur’s New England easy chair to create this contemporary form.

Bird and Toile  NEW COLOR
fabric and wallpaper

This graceful, delicate design is an adaptation of an English textile made ca.1785. The subtle shadings and delightful open, airy effect of this toile was possible due to the copperplate technique of printing. Prior to the use of the copperplate, printed fabrics were produced with wood blocks that limited the size and intricacy of the design. Brunschwig’s Bird and Thistle Print is a beautiful rendering of the original design used as curtains and a bedcover by Henry Francis du Pont at Winterthur, his home in Delaware.
