Frame and filling
We make the frames of our upholstered dining chairs with sold timber and proper joinery – they’re built to last. Sheldrake also has serpentine springs as well as foam and fibre padding for as much comfort as possible.
Comfort and proportions
Sheldrake has quite a high back that reclines slightly, so you can lean against it and rest your shoulders. The seat and back, although certainly not firm, are less springy than a design like Henley (try using the two together if you want both firm and soft), making it good if you prefer a more structured sit.
There’s plenty of detail in Sheldrake’s design – like the rows of buttons and diamond-shaped stitching, and the scallop shape along the top of the backrest and front of the seat skirt. But the rest of the design is completely pared-back, which is what makes it so timeless. And, because these are relatively tall chairs, you can still see the detail even when they’re gathered around the table.
