Custom Bridgewater Club Chairs

We recently finished these two custom Bridgewater style club chairs. Club chairs became popular in the 19th century and were a popular seating option. Designed with a low back and ample seat, they were mainly seen in gentlemen's clubs in England and considered to combine elements of both comfort and style.

Initially created to accommodate the male frame, they were simple and comfortable. Club chairs are still very popular and are often made with a Bridgewater arm, as seen here, which is an English rolled arm.

The arms are balanced with the skirt, and pleats, which slightly soften the look of the piece. These are substantial pieces, and quite comfortable with their down seats and tight back.

A matching ottoman ties both chairs together. They were upholstered in a black & white dot chenille by Kravet.
