John Lewis Hemingway Cane Back Dining Chair

Product information

This dining chair is made from melia ash and pippy oak veneers. With a cane backrest, plump upholstered seat, and X-shaped stretchers between the tapering legs.

Pippy oak features small, tight clusters of knots, which appear sporadically in the growth of the tree. This feature is highly valued by master craftsmen for its decorative appearance. Melia ash is a fast growing tree, taking only 20-25 years to mature, and has been used for its stable and durable qualities. The Cane used in Hemingway is natural and handmade

This elegant furniture is inspired by the formal yet practical look of the late 19th century Arts and Crafts movement. Each piece in the Hemingway range is made from melia oak solids and pippy oak veneers, stained a rich deep colour, and hand-polished with wax lacquer. For a traditional finish, doors and drawers are finished with antiqued brass knob handles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Super comfortable and look gorgeous These are charming looking - a glistening of walnut - golden in any dining area. We love these chairs - they are incredibly comfortable on the seat and in the back. Highly recommended and of course match perfectly with the lovely Hemmingway table. Spot on JL. 05 May 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfy and charming The cushion is soft to touch but firm enough to support throughout a dinner party and the cane back flexes just enough to be really comfortable. A simple, pretty and well made design, these chairs perfectly complement the Hemmingway dining table and bring a real sense of occasion to dining-in. 14 December 2011
