""By the nineteenth century, a growing German middle class gave way to an artistic awakening among furnishing styles and decorative preferences. Biedermeier furniture-makers favored simplicity, but the utilitarian pieces they designed were still carefully constructed with a sense of refinement and playful geometry. We built our slat back dining chair with the same purpose as well as a passion for pieces of the past that are still surprisingly fresh and modern today.
Every Biedermeier slat back chair we provide is meticulously reproduced and features all the intrinsic details you would expect from an authentic antique. Our master craftsmen carve, sand, and finish each slat back chair by hand to stay true to the techniques used over the last two centuries. We use only the finest, plantation-grown Honduran mahogany, which is revered for its straight grain, medium texture, and mesmerizing reddish-brown hue that's all accentuated by a satin semi-gloss finish. We offer a wide variety of stock upholstery materials and patterns for you to choose from.
Create your own one-of-a-kind slat back chair by customizing:
- Use your own upholstery material to give this chair a unique look
- Change the stain to match cherry, rosewood, walnut, pine, or oak
- Add a distressed or white-washed finish to complement your décor
At Laurel Crown, we are committed to the preservation of old-world construction techniques and quality craftsmanship down to the minutest detail. In every slat back dining chair, we reproduce, you will undoubtedly notice the difference between handcrafted furniture that hints to the past and the highly manufactured furnishings you find throughout stores today.
