A small Scottish Orkney accent chair from the early 20th century, with handwoven straw back and wooden seat. Born on the Orkney Island located near the northern tip of Scotland in the early 20th century, this armchair charms our eyes with its rustic appearance. Produced in the 1800s-early 1900s, these stylistically very recognizable chairs feature a wooden frame with a handwoven straw back. The curved back, slightly reminiscent of wingback chairs, was meant to protect whoever was sitting in the chair from the cold winds of the North Sea. This Scottish chair has two open arms, a sturdy wooden seat and four tapered legs with side stretcher. The unpretentiousness, simplicity and originality of the shape and material, will make this petite Orkney chair circa 1900 a great decorative accent in any living room, particularly in a mountain cabin or beach house.
