Some things are classics, and a rare few are standards. This chair is a standard, the first option against which others are measured. The neoclassical lines are simple, swept back, and refined. The shoulder board is curved and upholstered for comfort. Even the distinctive vase-like splat, like the Locri of antiquity, draws glances from both the front and the back. Aged brass nail head trim.
The Locri can be dressed up or down to the needs of the room. The padded shoulder board is unusual, and the back has just enough curve to work equally well at either a rectangular or a round dining table. The overall sense of movement, and the outline of the splat, make it ideal for paint. In the right color and fabric, this standard can become whatever you imagine.
