Wycombe’s design story
From ladder-backed and practical Shaker chairs to the rush-seated designs of the Arts & Crafts movement (and Morris & Co.’s famous Sussex chair), our Wycombe seating collection has quite a tale to tell. You can read all about it over on our journal.
Meet the family
As well as this stool, there’s also a bench and fixed and folding dining chairs in our Wycombe collection, making it one of our most versatile designs. It means you can create a coordinating combination of seats around your table that works perfectly for you.
Wycombe elsewhere in your home
There are so many ways you could use this stool throughout your home, not just around your dining table. If you’re short on space in your hallway, it could be a useful little spot to put on shoes instead of a bench. Or, being quite flat-topped, why not use it as a side table that’ll also double up as an extra seat?
The materials: oak
Oak’s sense of tradition together with its distinctive (but not too knotty) grain make it our go-to timber. Naturally durable when it comes to knocks, we’ve further protected the oak from spills with IsoGuard® – our oil-based formula that doesn’t mask the timber’s character. You can find out more about that here.
The materials: rush
Natural rush comes from freshwater bulrushes and has been used for furniture making for centuries. It has a variable colour that’s often green to begin with, whereas Wycombe’s seat, woven from a paper made with rush, is a more even pale cream colour. It’s also much stronger.
