When you order your Fresh Chairs, you have three finish styles to choose from: the Natural Oak Finish, the Homestead Collection and the Richmond Collection. Any chair style can be done in any of the finish styles.
Chairs from the Homestead Collection are meant to emulate chairs with a long loving history. Exposed layers of milk paint highlight the octagonal facets of the parts and the honest tool marks of the maker. Seats are woven with random widths and batches of hickory bark. Most color combinations involve either two or three colors. The chair rungs often include the wiggles where the grain of the wood grew around knots in the tree. These naturally occurring curves add to the composition of the design and enhance the individual character of each chair.
The Richmond Collection of chairs are at home in a more formal setting. Seats are woven from fine layers of inner hickory bark. The weavers are dyed black to show off the weave pattern. The finish on the chair frame is two layers of milk paint. The lighter hue of the base color is seen through a darker outer layer and subtly reveals the refined tool marks.
