When it comes to painted timber, we use tulipwood – a strong and resilient hardwood. Its fine, almost knot-free grain makes it perfectly suited to a painted finish, so you get the best of both worlds – strength and smoothness.
Not every piece of furniture and every colour of paint needs the same process – a ‘one finish suits all’ approach won’t ever give you the best result possible. That’s why we vary the number of coats and use both hand-painted and spray-painted techniques depending on what that shade needs.
Comfort and proportions
It may be made from wood, but Wardley doesn’t compromise on comfort. The top rail of the backrest curves to meet the shoulder blades, and there’s a barely detectable (until you sit in it), leg-hugging saddle shape to the seat.
To give it a crafted feel, the foxtail joints that attach the legs are visible in the seat. Sometimes they’re flush, sometimes they sit just proud (although you won’t feel them) – a variation that means each chair has its own character. From the back, there’s also the swallowtail detail usually found on Shaker boxes.
