Antique Primitive Country Made Armchair

Súgán is the Gaelic word for straw. Súgán chairs were found in most traditional Irish homes, especially in rural parts where they would have been skilfully produced by a local craftsman.

Charming, irregular and wonky lines.

Dry, weather-beaten wooden frame with woven straw seat.

The chair is, worn pitted and irregular, that is its charm and makes it what it is. The joints are all still solid and the seat is largely in good vintage order.

Measuring 105cm high x 60cm wide x 47cm deep. The seat height is roughly 46cm.
