Tribe Oak Chair

An Arts and Crafts style dining chair in oak.


I worked with the furniture maker Chris Tribe who has a workshop in the picturesque North Yorkshire town of Ilkely on this chair. I chose this design as it was one Chris had developed for a client a few years earlier. Memories fade quickly in a busy workshop, but we reconstructed the details together.

The flat solid seat is surprisingly comfortable, due to the gentle angle, and excellent back support from the laminated curved back ‘splats’.
