Our new Marbury chair

For a Colefax and Fowler photo shoot, we were asked to design and make a chair based on an original period antique. Such was the interest in the style that the Marbury chair was born.

The Marbury is a classic, formal chair with graceful and elegant proportions.

Suiting period homes in country or town settings, the Marbury’s fine lines perfectly complement Kingcome’s elegant Fairfax and Lucerne sofas. The Marbury also works beautifully as a standalone piece, perhaps in a window for occasional reading while enjoying the view.

With the Marbury, we have carefully retained the fine proportions and lines of the original design. Either elegantly tapered or traditionally woodturned legs complement the Marbury.

The Marbury suits a variety of fabrics, from traditional plaids to plain weaves, where contrast piping can be used to accentuate the chair’s elegant lines.
