Meet the Banjo Chair

The Banjo Chair has finally made it’s way all the way through the shop, and we love how it turned out. Based on an antique chair owned by a long time customer, we designed and built a custom chair for him for his hobby, playing the Banjo.

We liked the way it came out so much we have decided to add it to our standard line. Here's a version in cherry that we have on the showroom floor:
