Howard & Sons Woodstock Armchair

A Howard & Sons Woodstock armchair for sale with Siege de Duvet seat, circa 1915.

The Woodstock chair design can be traced back to the 1880s where Howard & Sons would design the chair with a lower ring turned leg.

This example of the early 1900s has the more extended walnut ring turned leg which allowed a little more height to the chair seat.

Upholstered in all the finest materials including original horsehair from the chair which has been carefully carded through and washed, its original springiness is restored and like no other filling available.

The armchair still retains its original Hessian stamped lining from the Howard workshops and the powder blue striped floral cotton lining replicates the cotton lining as found on the chair from the day it left the Berners Street workshops.

Height 30", width 30", depth 30", seat height to top of cushion 19"

Howard & Sons Pickwell Chair

A Howard & Sons Pickwell Chair for sale with Siege de Duvet seat, circa 1915.

The Howard & Sons fabric which the chair is covered in is an exact match to the original lining found on the armchair before restoration and was commonly found on many items of Howard upholstery.
