Occasionally, the woodworking required by upholstery can exceed that of even a large cabinet. The recessed, molded, and mitered squares of the Bevel Chair - with every piece of molding meticulously hand fit to complete the arc - create a coffered pattern inspired by the ceiling of the National Gallery rotunda. A tight back and seat force the eye to the frame. At the very least, Thomas Pheasant and the Baker craftsmen who worked with him have taken the idea of a barrel back chair to an entirely new level.
The Bevel Chair works well in traffic, and it might be the perfect chair to float. The uniqueness of the design works well in pairs. Many owners will prefer a combination fabric for the most fashionable presentation of a most fashionable chair.
