Kimble by Matthew Hilton for De La Espada is a Windsor chair named after a neighboring village of High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, where the Windsor chair originated in the 18th century. The chair has a modernized, pared down form made using traditional Windsor chair making techniques in order to further the story, the evolution of the English Windsor chair.
The contrast of the black walnut seat on this otherwise ash chair attractively highlights the wedge tenon detail where the leg intersects with the top of the seat. Kimble is part of a family of Windsor chairs including two dining chairs and Burnham Windsor Chair.
Available in solid European ash with a solid American black walnut seat with Danish oil, white oil, or black oil finish. NOTE: Only one oil option may be chosen for the chair.
Crafted at the solar-powered De La Espada factory in Portugal. Designed by a creative partner and rigorously engineered with the support of our in-house product development team and expert craftspeople. Durability, comfort, and aesthetics combine for a product that lasts a lifetime.
Timber is sustainable solid wood from North America and Europe, offering long-term repairability of the surface. Natural color and grain variations in every plank make each piece an individual. Traditional wood joinery bonded with wood glue ensures structural integrity. All finishes are non-toxic and applied by hand, sprayed, or rubbed.
