In adapting traditional Arts and Crafts forms, we wanted to achieve a lightness not found in the furniture popularized during the period. A gradual reverse tapering of the front legs gives weight to the bottom of these chairs while terminating gracefully at the top. This slight taper is echoed in the back design, which resembles a Wright-style stained-glass window. The armchair features a visible through joint on the armrest. Mortise-and-tenon joints are glued and pinned to ensure a secure fit for generations of use.
