NEXT GENERATION WINDSON CHAIR BY MATTHEW HILTON FOR KATIE WALKER FURNITURE

Next generation Windsor chair, reinvented in new dynamic shape. It`s a classic British Windsor chair, perhaps the most typical icon of English furniture. At first the chair was painted in green and used as a garden seat. Over the years a country chair evolved in sophisticated one.
"I grew up with the chairs in my parents’ house in the 1960s. I always liked their elegance and began to appreciate other characteristics when I trained as a furniture designer. The shape is very efficient, using every part of a log, and strength is achieved with little material. Visually, it has a pleasing lightness because the splayed legs and fanning spindles create plenty of space within the structure.” says the British designer Matthew Hilton.
