The Elsie chair is a tribute to Elsie Reford, creator of the Reford Gardens, and marks our first collaboration with the historical site. Inspired by the classic bentwood chairs of the 19th century, we cataloged a range of traditional seating designs that have endured through time, discovering that the handmade wooden chair remains a timeless classic.
The Elsie chair is generously curved and gives the impression of solidity and comfort, enhanced by the warmth of solid wood. The Quebec red oak is a resistant wood species that will allow several generations to enjoy this chair. Its pronounced grain pattern, which differs from one creation to the next, gives the object a unique and evolving character.
