Project Description

Throughout the 1700’s and 1800’s Windsor chair building in the United States took place along the Eastern coast. Because of the craftsmanship and construction techniques, many two hundred year old chairs are still today sound pieces of furniture. These chairs are some of the world’s most loved antiques. We continue that chair making tradition here at The Windsor Chair Shop, using the same construction techniques and tools as those used 200 years ago.
Windsor chairs built in the 1700’s and 1800’s were finished with Milk paint. Made from organic compounds including earth pigments, lime, and milk proteins this non toxic finish is attractive and very durable. We offer several variations of this finish.
