  1. Morris Chair and Ottoman in 1/4-Sawn White Oak with English Oak Finish

    Morris Chair and Ottoman

    William Morris (1834 – 1891) was one of the original forces in the "back to basics" trend in architecture, home furnishings, tiles, and fabrics that became known as the Arts and Crafts movement. One of the furniture pieces that he is best known for bears his name – the Morris chair. These were somewhat different than the chair pictured here– the design was more Victorian England – but the idea was the same. The back could be adjusted into several different positions, the cushions are removable, and most important of all, it was comfortable.

     

    Gustav Stickley picked up this idea and built a piece that has become more familiar in the United States. It was part of what he called his "Mission Oak" line of furniture (the word "mission" by now has incorrectly come to identify Arts and Crafts furniture in general).

     

    Our Morris chair demands a footstool, so much so that we have included it in the price. 5 yards of fabric is needed to cover the chair and footstool.

  2. Parlor Collection

    Parlor Collection

    The word "parlor" comes from the Old French root that gives us the current French word "parler" or "to speak". The words "parliament" and "parley" have the same derivation. So the parlor was a comfortable, somewhat private room where one could have a meaningful conversation. Hardwood Artisans makes sofas, loveseats, and chairs that would fit nicely into, and facilitate, the conversation in any parlor. These pieces have tall back supports that are so inviting to settle into and wide arm rests that work so well to support your book or your arm.

    • Chair requires three yards of fabric 
    • Footstool requires one and a half yards of fabric
    • Loveseat requires nine and a half yards of fabric
    • Loveseats and sofas include two throw pillows
    • Sofa requires thirteen yards of fabric
