Arts & Crafts Style Chair

Stickley Brothers Furniture Company - 1895-1917

The front arm posts have a slightly backward bend that mirrors the backward curve of the back. These features combined with the subtly arched lower rungs convey a sense of lightness. The seat is a replacement, but it tastefully done. It is not unusual that the original would be gone.
