About this item

This is a beautiful pair of English burr walnut Regency style inlaid armchairs from the last quarter of the 20th century.  

The chairs are made from solid walnut and the burr walnut backs are inlaid with decorations such as antique vases, feathers, and floral arrangements.

They  have drop in seats which are covered in a royal burgundy and gold upholstery. Underneath these upholstered seats are weaved cane seats. This variation allows for cooler and more comfortable dining in the warmer summer months.

They have been lovingly French polished and are ready to grace your dining or conference room.

urr Walnut
refers to the swirling figure present in nearly all walnut when cut and polished, and especially in the wood taken from the base of the tree where it joins the roots. However the true burr is a rare growth on the tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. Burr walnut produces some of the most complex and beautiful figuring you can find.

Regency Furniture
During the Regency period it was fashionable to copy the classical furniture of the Roman and Greek times. Furniture had stopped evolving in design and had moved back to classical forms. The pioneer designers who represented this period were:

Thomas Hope (1770-1831),  George Smith (1804-28), Henry Holland (1745 - 1806)

George IV had a major influence over the furniture makers of the time.

This period saw the introduction of brass to wood from the previous marquetry that had been originally used. The sofa table was also introduced.

The main features of the Regency period furniture were their simplicity, with straight, unbroken surfaces and lines.
