The Art of Crafting Antique Reproduction Windsor Chairs: D.R. Dimes & Company’s Masterpieces
If you’ve ever admired the beauty and craftsmanship of antique Windsor chairs, you’re in for a treat. At D.R. Dimes & Company, we’ve made it our mission to carry forward the tradition of crafting antique reproduction Windsor chairs that capture the essence of traditional American furniture. Let’s take a closer look at the artistry that defines our masterpieces.
D.R. Dimes & Company’s Dedication to Our Craft
Crafting antique reproduction Windsor chairs is more than just a business for us—it’s a labor of love. We believe in preserving the heritage of traditional American furniture, and each chair we create reflects that commitment.
Our journey begins with a deep appreciation for the craftsmanship that came before us. We study and pay homage to the designs and techniques that made antique Windsor chairs a symbol of enduring quality and style.
The Gilpin Comb-Back Arm Chair
One of our standout pieces is the Gilpin Comb-Back Arm Chair. It’s not just a chair, it’s a piece of history. Named after the original maker, Thomas Gilpin of Philadelphia, this chair is a testament to the artistry of the eighteenth century.
The Gilpin Chair’s large “D” shaped seat is a distinctive feature that offers both comfort and aesthetics. It’s sharply chamfered and boasts a unique double-line pattern. The turnings are inspired by Pennsylvania Blunt Arrow and add to its charm. The chair’s comb is beautifully scrolled and showcases the Philadelphia style of the middle of the eighteenth century.
The Lancaster County Comb Back W/ Rockers
Our love for Windsor chairs extends to the Lancaster County Comb Back W/ Rockers, a chair that combines beauty with functionality. While rockers weren’t common in eighteenth-century Windsor chairs, they became fashionable during the early nineteenth century. We pay tribute to this historical innovation with our own twist.
The Lancaster County Chair is designed to offer the grace and utility of traditional Windsor chairs while adding the joy of rocking. It’s a prime example of how early Americans repurposed their furniture for new needs. We believe in preserving the beauty of Windsor chairs and adapting them to modern lifestyles.
The New England Comb-Back Arm Chair
The New England Comb-Back Arm Chair is a testament to New England’s rich Windsor chair heritage. It stands out with a shield-shaped seat that showcases the expert craftsmanship of the time. What sets this chair apart are the intricately carved knuckles on the armrest.
We’re proud to emphasize that these knuckles are painstakingly carved by hand which ensures they’re not just beautiful but also comfortable. Everyone who sits in this chair appreciates the tactile experience of running their hands along the knuckles. It is a small but significant detail that makes it stand out.
