Strictly speaking, it is a “Windsor chair” – a wooden chair with a seat carved to gently encase the buttocks and lathe-turned legs that do not form part of the back. But the people of the internet have taken to referring to these squiggly-shaped chairs as “nervous chairs”. They look like they’re afraid that you might sit on them.
London-based furnituremakers Grant Wilkinson and Teresa Rivera made this chair and its siblings. Their collection combines traditional carpentry techniques and modern designs. You can shop for their works at The Future Perfect, a luxury furniture company with stores in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
