Spindle Back Carver

R 4,485.00
The Spindle Back Carver offers a comfortable arm rest option to our lovely Diner option. Present in dining rooms and some of the most loved cafes and restaurants in South Africa. It took 8 months of refinement to ensure we offer the best possible chair at the best possible price. Its weight, comfort and style has all been considered in the design process.

Because we’re in the business of making modern furniture that will last generations, we love stories about timeless classics such as the carver dining chair. There are two tales about how the carver with its characteristic armrests acquired its name. The prosaic account says it was a grander chair for the head of a household, who would typically carve the meat at the start of a meal.

The more romantic option says the chair is named after John Carver, one of the Pilgrims who travelled from England to the New World aboard the Mayflower in 1620, landing in Massachusetts. Carver is said to have owned a dining chair with arms. The truth may never be known, but we’re proud to keep the heritage wheel turning by offering a carver version of our simple but stylish spindle back dining chair.

Choose a shaped timber seat in one of four hardwearing wood finishes, or switch things up with the choice of five modern fabrics and four leathers for the upholstered versions. Where you use your Spindle Back Carver is, of course, up to you. Our modern take on this time-honoured design looks just as good alongside any of our tables as it does on its own in a cosy nook, by a fireplace … in fact just about anywhere. It’s your call to arms…

Our Oak:

We only use sustainably harvested American oak to craft our furniture. Timber is an inherently sustainable material - trees are (ideally) an infinitely renewable resource. But many manufacturers rely on monocropped pine, or other woods, due to cost and ease. This practice destroys soil and the surrounding ecosystem. All our oak is grown and harvested in indigenous forests on the east coast of America. Trees are felled only once they’ve reached full maturity. Then they are drawn from the forest in minimally invasive ways that preserve the surrounding vegetation. It’s all about delivering a truly sustainable and stunning product.

Manufacturing Process:

Carpentry and joinery are two of the oldest crafts on earth, and furniture making ordinarily requires a huge amount of skill in order to deliver truly exceptional results. Unfortunately, these traditions are largely dying off, particularly in the global South, making great wooden furniture hard to come by at reasonable prices. At Houtlander we want as many people as possible to have access to beautiful, well-crafted furniture which lasts a lifetime. This is why we’ve combined expert craftsmanship with 5-axis CNC technology, allowing us to create perfect curves, joints and furniture features in an affordable and replicable way.
