Inspired by Chinese tradition, this handcrafted design rose to popularity during the Ming Dynasty where it began as a throne for deities and royalty. Later embraced by the elite, this chair played a distinctive role in the Chinese home–to receive guests in the main hall or to be used by scholars in their studies. Curved arms protrude beyond its supporting posts and a thick curving crest rail completes its regal appearance. Its finish is applied by hand for an antique appearance. A perfect conversation piece for any room in your home!
Due to the handcrafted nature of its construction, finishes and detailing may vary, making each piece unique.
The entire piece is constructed from solid pine.
The finish is hand-applied with distressed brown tones.
Detailing is hand-carved in traditional Chinese style.
Dust with a soft cloth for daily care.
Use clear BRIWAX® to maintain the finish. Apply once every several months with a soft cloth. Apply in small sections thoroughly working the wax into the grain. Once dry, buff to desired luster.
Wipe up all spills immediately.
Avoid exposing your furniture to excessive heat (e.g. by placing it in front of a radiator) as this can cause cracking, warping and potential fading of the wood; a minimum 30cm clearance from heat sources is advised.
Never place hot dishes on this tabletop; we recommend the use of felt-backed tablemats.
Protect surfaces from hot and/or wet dishes/objects with coasters and table pads to preserve the finish and natural characteristics of the wood.
Prolonged use of hot electrical equipment such as a television on top of furniture may also cause scorching.
Do not drag this 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.
