Antique seating for all occasions

The ways of the people of the olden times often defined the look and the comfort of the chairs. For instance the monks resorted to strict living and so comfort was not a defining factor, which made the medieval designs more austere. The Greeks gave a lot of emphasis to comfort and so their designs were more leisurely.

We are particualarly proud of our fine collection of antique seating that reflect a wide variety of seating options such as chairs, benches and daybeds that span a number of periods and countries.

Our newest additions to the collection include a wonderful set of early 19th Century Spanish dining chairs. These beautiful dining chairs from Spain still retain their original paint and are perfect for the country kitchen and can be paired with any farmhouse dining table like a French farmhouse dining table.
