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 that of our own, with an updated shape that offers a more modern sense of comfort and a subtle nod to Shaker-style simplicity.

Materials

In its painted form, Suffolk is made from tulipwood. It’s a high-quality hardwood that’s not only incredibly strong, it’s also ideal for painting because of its ultra-smooth surface and fine grain with very few knots.

Finish

We take great care in achieving our painted finish and treat every design differently, giving it exactly what it needs to make it robust. We vary the number of base and top coats according to how many that particular shade requires. And we use a mixture of spray-painted and hand-painted techniques so the finish is as perfect as can be.

Comfort & proportions

Most of us prefer to sit slightly reclined – it’s why many people swing back on their seats – so Suffolk was designed with a tilt in its backrest. It also curves around your back and shoulders. The seat dips inwards too, and can be made 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).

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.

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.
