Product Description

Our Library Chair is a contemporary re-edition of the study chair created for the university library in Chandigarh. The chair has a cane lattice seat and a solid teak back rest. A single cross bar or brace lends support to the back legs. The backrest in our edition is one notch lower than the top of the side frames, an aesthetic detail we liked in certain vintage models we studied in Chandigarh.

Product Options

We offer this product in Natural Teak or Dark Stain finish. For the Natural Teak, we do not stain the wood; the wood is sanded to smoothness and transparent wood polish and sealer are applied to bring out the natural golden brown colour of teak. For the Dark Stain, a coat of teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker shade. Please note, each batch of teak is unique and actual shade may vary a little from the reference images.
