Richard Hornby designed furniture for affluent trendsetters during the mid 20th century. His work for British furniture maker Fyne Ladye lead to a range of contemporary designs of the highest order, crafted in exotic timbers. Elegant simplicity is the defining feature of the range.
These modernist dining chairs are clean and refined in a stunning dark afromosia timber, which the designer preferred for a lot of his work. We love the subtle angle on the back which animates a very linear design and the premium craftsmanship which combine to create a classic piece of furniture.
Each piece is checked and carefully restored at our Kingsland studio workshop. Our focus is preserving the character and patina of the design while ensuring it displays beautifully in a contemporary interior.
- Joints checked and reglued
- Timber cleaned and stains removed
- Veneer repairs if needed
- Surfaces polished / refinished
