Horseshoe Armchair, Black Lacquer

Shimu

http://www.shimu.co.uk

Finished in our black lacquer, this horseshoe armchair takes its design from those of the Ming dynasty used as symbols of status. Originally used at court and by high ranking officials, they were also known in Chinese as 'Grand Tutor Chairs' (taishi yi). However they later became more popular in Chinese culture, although still reserved for the most important visitors or family members. Recognisably one of the most characteristic of Chinese designs, the chairs feature a beautifully curved back which extends to the arms in a horseshoe shape and normally made either from three or five pieces of wood, with complex joinery holding them together, though more rudimentary versions were also made using a single piece of flexible wood such as willow. Made from elm with an in set rattan seat panel and the curved back splat features a carved relief Dragon. The chair's fluid curves and classical design will bring a touch of sophistication to a modern setting.
