Child's High Chair in Ash and Rippled Ash
This high chair was designed for a three and a half year old boy called Arthur. It was deliberately designed to be 'throne-like' in appearance. He seems to like eating his lunch whilst sitting on King Arthur's throne!
The splats at the back of the chair have all been curved in two directions to provide some lumber support. These curves were achieved by steam-bending the individual Ash pieces.
The chair has a foot step on the front stretcher to help a small person climbing up and getting down.
