This chair was designed by Philip Tilden for Heals of London in the late 1920s.

Tilden was an architect for many prominent figures of English society, untill he fell on tough times and started designing furniture.
He was commissioned by Winston Churchill to design furniture for his country residence, Chartwell House in Kent.
Churchill famously requested that the dining chairs should be narrow enough to make for very social dinners but have arm rests so you retain some personal space.

This fireside chair was part of that collection.

This chair has a square profile typical of the Arts and Crafts time.

The frame is made of oak and the seat has rush weaving.

There are some later renovations around the seat edge with visible nails and some stains on the wood, but still retaining a lovely patina.

L 61 x W 49 x H 70 (seat height 30)
