Howard & Son Style Armchair Circa 1860



In Stock Product Code: A018

A very comfortable “Howard & Sons style” Victorian armchair Circa. 1880 on tapered feet in Mahogany with original castors.  Completely stripped to the frame, re-glued, pegged and screwed so guaranteed for 40 years.  Fully sprung seat and back using individual copper cone springs with soft hair and wool build up.  This armchair comes with a chambered feather and down fitted seat cushion shaped to the front of the chair.  Lovely saddle arm which is comfortable for supporting your arm.  Exquisitely upholstered to include a soft lumber support in the lower back to ensure comfort.

This chair would have been made originally at the height of “The Age of Comfort”, a period during which the Victorian furniture makers of the day pioneered furniture making and traditional upholstery using horsehair and lambswool.  This period produced some of the most comfortable furniture that was available and set the standard for cabinetmakers and upholsterers of the day to aspire to.  The methods and materials used then are the same methods and materials we use today to ensure we create the same comfort.  The reception felt when sitting in a truly traditional upholstered armchair is unrivalled, hence our promise of unrivalled comfort that lasts a lifetime.

This chair is available with feather and down seat cushion as priced, or we can undertake our tailored upholstery for you and re-cover it any fabric.  You can supply your own fabric or we can supply it.  We represent all the major fabric houses and are able to offer a comprehensive sampling service through either of our Lancashire or London showrooms.  Please contact us and we can send you a sample pack.
