Qingdao Side Chair


Rope and string handicrafts catch my eye wherever I go--I like how such humble, handy materials are used to make beautiful things. The last time I was in Qingdao, a Chinese port city with a rich history, I gathered up all sorts of items (wooden boxes, jewelry) decorated with rope. I decided to bring home this method of embellishment, and that’s where our Qingdao Side Chair came from. Its mahogany frame and linen seat are classics, of course, but the woven rope on the back takes the whole chair up a notch. It gives your back a place to rest, it introduces rich texture, and it’s an unusual flourish you won’t see just anywhere. Dimensions: 17.5 x 18.5 x 37.5 in inches. Imported. Handling Fee is $20.
