Kingston High Back Dining Chairs

The Kingston Chair High Back Dining Chair features clean contours and a scrolled back. The Kingston is an elegant design that is suited to most homes.  The quality of this style of chair varies by manufacturer, indeed low price copies of the original can be found online.  The better levels of quality are worth reupholstering.  We strip to the frame, check and repair, re-web and spring, re-foam/pad and upholster as required.

This example has an oak frame and polished legs.


This is an original Kingston High Back dining chair – circa 1930s. The set was lovingly restored in our workshop.
