Project Description

from M&E Gummel Chair Works

M&E Gummel Chairworks is guided by a father and son dream to have a family business building furniture together. They want to introduce to you the products of that dream, their Windsor Chairs. They strive to focus on the natural beauty, lines construction and techniques of the designs used in 1730-1840 America. They use authentic milk paint to achieve the powdered, patina finish that you would find on period furniture. Whether applied in one coat or layers of authentic, colonial colors the natural texture of the wood remains. Each piece is hand rubbed as though years of use had worn the arms & spindles to a warm polish. Add a century of age to your chair by choosing the antique, crackle finish. Their Windsor chairs are graceful in appearance and will blend nicely with your well-loved antiques.
If you are in historic Castine, Maine please visit their shop, an 1895 barn in the process of being reborn, and see for yourself. Or view stunning photos of these magnificent chairs at
