Shelton Chair in Clarence White with Topsail White-Wash

$399.00$450.00

Adapted from our Wolf Ears chair, the Shelton has a solid, unembellished top rail. Essentially a ladderback, the Shelton strikes a fine balance between size and comfort – sufficiently compact for a kitchen or small dining room, and spacious enough in the seat to provide lasting comfort. Robust construction with cross-braced posts, integral leg assembly and pegged joinery. A solid feel and clean take on a classic style, this chair will settle with confidence and ease into a variety of vastly different design schemes.

  • 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.

Topsail White-Wash

Our take on the classic the white-wash effect. We start with a coat of our Clarence White and when it's dry we wash it down with a wet cloth. The trick is getting the wash right. Remove too much paint, and the wood looks bare. Remove too little, and the paint looks damaged. The process is completed with one sealer and two lacquer clear-coats, which brings out the wood grain, protects the wash, and steps up the sheen.
