Archie Shine “Dorrington” Rosewood chairs

An extremely rare design by Robert Heritage

Never has there been a better time to invest in these highly collectable mid century pieces in Rio rosewood. This set of six will make a truly stunning feature in any dining space.

Since Brazilian rosewood was declared an endangered species in 1978, furniture made from this exotic hardwood came to a halt. Since then it has become extremely desirable and highly prized. In addition to the scarcity of the wood the bold and distinctive black grain patterns offer a unique finish that cannot be found in other woods.

The chair backs feature striking retro curves that look good when viewed from any angle and the deep seat cushions provide added comfort.

These iconic chairs were designed and produced in the late 1950s / early 1960’s by leading British furniture designer Robert Heritage for the prestigious London Furniture manufacturer Archie Shine and sold via Heals high end home store.

Robert Heritage was made Royal Designer for Industry by the Royal Society of Arts in 1963 and worked as Head of the Furniture Department at the Royal College of Art from 1974 to 1985. No other British designer has won as many British design Council awards. Little wonder that his designs are now highly sought after by serious collectors - and cherished by the lucky few - who own such fine and increasingly rare pieces of modern history.

All six chairs are in immaculate condition having recently been professionally reupholstered. Unbelievably - given their age - the rosewood frames show hardly a sign of wear.

The image showing the chairs with a matching Robert Heritage rosewood table is for illustration purposes only. The table is not included in this listing but is available to purchase separately.
