Hickory Chair University: Molly’s Perspective

On our tour of the Hickory Chair Furniture Manufacturer – late in the day I found this beautiful wing chair in their Mezzanine Showroom. At first glance – it’s just a great wing chair – but a closer look reveals the smoothest curves and shape that creates this chair. Possibly no other chair design has been reproduced over time as the wing – but so often it is poorly done. THIS is perfection. Hickory chair purchased the original chair by John Townsend from Rhode Island and copied it with precision. The wooden frame itself is carved and shaped to capture those curves without relying on the upholstery to shape it. Check out the movement of the curves across the back. This Townsend Wing Chair could easily fit into many interiors – and hopefully one that can showcase it’s beauty from all sides.
