The comfort, flexibility and elegance of our sculpted fan back sets this chair apart from any wooden chair made today. Our superior joinery provides enough strength for us to eliminate the entire undercarriage for a clean look with less weight. Meticulous hand sculpting of each part ties them together visually. Each detail creates a flow that supports comfort through its sensual look and feel.
Underneath the fine German leather of the seat, a carefully shaped memory foam pad supports your body, increasing the comfort the longer you sit. Underneath, a bent laminated form holds everything in just the right shape for your ultimate sitting experience.

Brian Boggs wants to connect you to the trees. Walking around his workshop, you feel the inspiration surrounding him: full logs are broken into thick slabs, long blocks of mahogany stacked on sturdy shelves, your own body with its specific quirks.
His unique perspective evolved through reading James Krenov’s “The Fine Art of Cabinet Making” and progressed within “Make a Chair from a Tree” by John Alexander. Combining Alexander’s sensitivity to his materials with the mastery of the tools of Krenov, Brian communes with the wood while adding an organic understanding of his clients’ needs.
