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. His chair was slightly 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 were removable, and most important of all, it was comfortable.
Visually, this chair invites you to sit down and relax – a result of the sloping arms and side rails, the warmth and color of the quartersawn white oak and the upholstered seat and back. Few people who see this chair can resist the desire to sit in it. And few who sit in it can rise without regret.
Our Morris chair demands a footstool, so much so that we have included it in the price.
Fabric: The price of this piece includes the upholstering but not the actual cost of fabric. If you choose to purchase this item, you will need to supply fabric which we will then have put on your piece.
