Jordan Dining Side Chair With Upholstered Seat In Rubbed Black
Extra 10% Applied in Cart
Nestled among acres of vineyards in full view of the eastern Alps, a workshop hums with activity and the rich sounds of Italian voices. In this family-run workshop, furniture is created at the hands of talented artisans who we’ve been fortunate enough to work with for decades. Much like the dining chairs we saw throughout Europe, our signature Jordan Chair features a curved, ornate back that is complemented by simply finished legs. Our minds spinning, we added scrolled arms, a multilayer finish and even a small finial detail. Each takes up to three weeks to complete because of the labor-intensive process necessary to create such a distinctive silhouette. Solid beech is steam bent to create a subtly curved back, then reinforced with a double layer of beech veneers and sanded. The scrollwork details are carved into the back, then sanded again and sent for assembly with the rest of the frame. As a last step, the finish is created by applying multiple shades of stain and hand-rubbing to evoke a worn appearance. Settle into one of four styles and summon images of the pastoral Italian countryside.
Choose from designer inspired fabrics to customize the look of fully padded seats.
To achieve the gently aged appearance of the finishes, the chair is layered with multiple shades of rich stain, then hand-rubbed.
Constructed from both beech solids and veneers in order to create a strong base for the unique, hand-applied finishes.
Beech veneer panels are hand-selected. Due to the textured nature of this particular type of wood grain, splits, knots and slight color variation are to be expected.
The solid beech back is steam bent to achieve its subtly curved shape. A double layer of beech veneers is applied cross-directionally in order to create a durable and long-lasting surface.
After sanding the back, scrolling patterns are cut into the wood with a jigsaw and sanded again.
All joints are corner-blocked and glued, then doubly reinforced with a mortise-and-tenon construction to guarantee years of structural reliability.
A network of durable rubber (Pirelli) webbing supports the fully padded seat to deliver years of firm yet flexible support.
The seat is attached with four heavy-duty screws, allowing you to remove the seat for cleaning or reupholstering as desired.
Depending on the type of fabric you select, certain cleaning codes apply. It is extremely important that you adhere to the specifications of cleaning codes in order to get the maximum cleaning results.
For all cleaning codes, pre-test any/all cleaners for color loss and fabric compatibility. Use distilled water when mixing cleaners. Do not over wet.
For overall soiling, use a professional cleaning service.
All fabric may fade over time. Wearability of fabric is relative to care and use.
For daily maintenance, clean wood using a mild soap and water solution. Towel-dry immediately.
Dust wood with a soft, dry cloth and buff periodically using a non-wax furniture polish such as Guardsman® Wood Polish.
Do not use care products that contain ammonia or silicone as this will cut through the lacquer finish over time and damage your piece.
Spills should be removed immediately with a damp cloth.
Always avoid exposure to direct sunlight or heat (e.g. by placing it in front of a radiator) as this can cause cracking and potential fading; a minimum 30 cm clearance from heat sources is advised.
Do not drag piece(s) across the floor as this will cause damage or weaken joints.
Dropping furniture onto corners or feet will cause damage.
Leaning backwards on two legs of a chair may weaken joints.
Toys, buckles and heels will scratch furnishings—try to prevent these objects from coming into contact with your piece(s).
