Wardley Dining Chair

Change colour

A closer look at Wardley

There’s a sense of heritage in Wardley’s design – a classic Windsor chair made contemporary. It’s a style that’s been around since the 18th-century, that we’ve updated with a cleaner form and lower height. Wardley is also defined by its comfortable curves and the beautiful workmanship in its joints and decorative detail.

Materials

Even for painted pieces, we’ll use proper timber, because it allows you to sand back and re-paint should it get damaged. We’ve chosen birch because it has a very fine, almost knot-free grain, resulting in a super-smooth, long-lasting finish. 

Finish

We take great care over our painted finishes and give every design exactly what it needs to make it robust. The number of base and top coats will vary according to how many that 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

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.

Design detail

Wardley’s expert joinery is noticeable particularly in the seat, where the foxtail joints that attach the legs are visible. Sometimes these are flush, sometimes they sit just proud (although you won’t feel them) – a variation we love.

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.
