About this item

This is a very elegant bespoke new leather 'Gainsborough chair' in a beautiful antique cognac colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality.

The hand-dyed russet hide bears all the hallmarks of natural leather including scars, stretch marks, grain and texture variation.

The chair  is upholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued. Because they are hand dyed we can finish the leather to any colour requested, and the beautiful antique patina is achieved by the special walnut based stains that we use in the process.

The studding is achieved with close individual nails / studs not by using strips, and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.

The show wood on the chair is solid mahogany and the frames are made from solid beech, so we only use hardwoods.

Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for.

Available in other colours.

Gainsborough chair
(also known as a Martha Washington chair in the United States) is a type of armchair made in England in the eighteenth century. The chair was wide, with a high back, open sides and short arms, and was normally upholstered in leather. Contemporaries referred to it as a 'French chair', as the most elaborate styles were based on French Rococo chairs from the Louis XV period.
