Suffolk Painted 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. It’ll also add the warmth and texture of natural oak to your space.

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 and 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.
