Whitsides Chair

This classic Australian chair was made for the dining rooms of our prosperous pioneers, and similar treasured originals can be seen in National Trust Homes.
This chair was designed and made in 1859 by James Whitesides, who won five gold medals for his designing and handcrafting of solid cedar at International Exhibitions.
In 1868 he was appointed cabinetmaker to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. An original chair is illustrated in Australian Colonial Furniture, plate 8, by Dr John Buttsworth who comments: The Whitesides Chair is of classic design with a refined back support-rail harmonising with the simply shaped splat.

Master Craftsman's comments
Colonial Living's Whitesides chairs are handcrafted to feature the same beautifully hand turned front legs and elegantly shaped and tapered upper back leg supports.
All the leg joints are strong and of durable mortise and tenons construction. The critical back leg joint is further strengthened by the addition of screwed and glued corner blocks. Due to our traditional strong construction, Colonial Living has never had a chair joint fail.
