Frame and filling
We make the frames of our upholstered dining chairs with sold timber and proper joinery – they’re built to last. Long Island also has serpentine springs as well as foam and fibre padding for as much comfort as possible without making it too bulky.
Comfort and proportions
Long Island’s shape is deceptively straight-lined; sit down and you’ll find that the backrest is softer down the centre to mould to your body, and that the seat is surprisingly springy. As one of our higher-backed dining chairs, it’s got shoulder support covered too.
The loose covers reach only part way down the legs so you can see the solid oak. They also fit snugly because they tuck into a pocket between the back and seat, which means you don’t need to worry about them crumpling too much. Small notches kick the fabric out at each corner to soften the lines of the chair, but look simpler than a skirt.

The textiles in our fabric library range from pure linen to rich velvet and wool, and each has its own character. Tone and texture can vary slightly from thread to thread, and expect to see the occasional slub in our linens – traits that are all a lovely part of natural materials.
Sometimes colours between batches can vary ever so slightly. To be on the safe side, we’d advise buying pieces that are being used in the same room in one go.
