The chair design modifies the traditional Windsor chair form while maintaining construction and material practices. The chair takes the overall form of a continuous back Windsor chair but employs the vertical elements as continuous uprights that stretch from the floor to the top rail to provide support and visual uniformity. Ash is traditionally used for the back and spindles on Windsor chairs because of the ease of bending and straight grain. Because of the large number of bent wood members in the design, ash remains the most appropriate wood.
