About this item

This is an elegant bespoke pair of new leather 'Gainsborough chairs' 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.

They are 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.

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

Available in other colours.


In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

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.
