Plateau Side Chair in Antique Black With Williams Pine

Champlain Collection

Plateau Side Chair in Antique Black With Williams Pine

A tall dining chair will almost certainly evoke a sense of formality. And at 43", our Plateau ladderback chair is relatively tall, and a full 13" taller than a typical dining table. In contrast, the straight back-rails, square, tapered posts and unembellished leg assembly cut a convincingly clean and relaxed silhouette. A comfortable and dependable chair, the dished pine seat is generous in size and provides ample space to change seating positions and shift body weight; underrated aspects of lasting comfort, for those meals that linger. The back posts are integral to the leg assembly and the legs are not splayed. Seated weight is transferred directly and effortlessly to the floor without stressing the hand-fitted joinery. A great choice if you never want to buy chairs again.

  • Growing up, we'd go on family ski trips to Mont Sainte Anne. We'd visit Quebec City and tour around Île d'Orléans. Always on the look out for interesting furniture, we'd seek out objects and expressions of the local vernacular. We rented ski chalets and had a funny habit of rearranging the furniture and re-imagining the decor. These were great trips. Family times, great skiing and good food. We noticed that the wood furniture had a local flavour and we adored the old painted finishes. Our Champlain Collection was inspired by those trips.

Dished Seat

A mark of craftsmanship and a sign of comfort, a dished chair seat provides a full measure of additional design refinement. Character in the wood grain is revealed along a third dimension. The play of light is more lively across the moulded contours. A hint at its intended purpose, its natural compliment in relief.

Antique Black with Natural Wear

We offer a variety of hand applied finishes, ranging from flawless, high-gloss piano black on one end of the spectrum, to rustic, looks-like-you-found-it-in-an-old-barn on the other. Our Antique Black in the moderate range; some edges and corners are rubbed though in places they're likely be handled in day-to-day use. Back-rails and the top of back-posts and prime candidates.
