The Boston Queen Anne Side Chair

DSC_0117While Queen Anne never sat on her name-sake chair, this style of furniture saw development during her reign (1702-14). The term was used in colonial America during the reign of King George I. Perhaps the colonists had a aversion to using the mane King George or “Georgian” since we fought George III in 1775.

The Boston Queen Anne Side Chair is based on an original built in Boston during 1730 – 1750. Each component of this elegant chair is shaped to conform to the classic S curve; a hallmark of the Queen Anne style. The compass seat, cabriole legs, the vase shaped splat (back) and yoke crest (top of back) are found only on faithful reproductions of this period. It is a fully constructed chair to provide comfort and stability for decades to come. It is this attention to detail and craftsmanship which you can rely on in the Colorado Case and Cabinet Company line of furniture.

Colorado Case and Cabinet Company will use only the finest grades of rich mahogany, classic cherry, or elegant grained woods. Our recent exploration of Texas Mesquite wood for this distinctive classic chair has proven to give fascinating results for distinct interiors. A 14 step hand rubbed finish will have your Boston Queen Anne Side Chair ready for your upholsterer.
