Suffolk Dining Chair

Change colour

A closer look at Suffolk

Suffolk’s story started with an 18th-century dining chair, spotted in an antiques shop on a family holiday. Its ball-back design inspired our own, we’ve just updated its shape for those of us that want a more modern sense of comfort. Because it’s such a simple, low-key design, it’s good for wherever you want a relaxed or minimal feel, and for painting in a stand-out colour.

Materials

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.

Finish

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 & proportions

Most of us prefer to sit slightly reclined – it’s why many people swing back on their seats – so we designed Suffolk to lean back a little. Its back also curves, and there’s a dip in the seat too which you can make even more comfy by adding the matching cushion.

Design detail

It’s the little things that make a difference to how polished Suffolk feels. Like the proportional overhang on the seat, the legs that taper into the backrest, and the balanced size of the balls in its back – they sit proud of the cross pieces, but you’re not likely to feel them when you sit down.

Right this way

We take our delivery service seriously. Neptune transport, Neptune people, Neptune service.

Our white glove service means you’ll have a two-man delivery team. That means no heavy lifting on your part is needed. They’ll take it to your desired spot, assemble it for you and take away the packaging for recycling. The assembly service does exclude fitted furniture.

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. If you decide on the day that it’s not for you then our delivery team can take it away for you there and then, free of charge.

But if you’d rather mull things over, you have 28 days to make up your mind. We do charge a pick-up fee of £29.95 here though, because we’ll need to send our delivery team back out to your address for collection.
