We have been making rustic furniture since 1982, and this is our favorite and best-selling chair.
It measures approximately 30" x 30" x 42" high.
We responsibly harvest native Missouri willow trees by coppicing--cutting to allow the tree to regrow--and only cut a few at a time from each willow thicket.
After harvesting, we form the rustic chair by the historic age-old method...bending while green...then dry the piece in our room-size kiln. When dry, we set the nails, sand lightly, and satin finish for protection, cleanability, and beauty.
Care: We recommend a sheltered location. A porch or covered deck that protects it from direct sun and rain is an ideal outdoor location. Indoors is always the absolutely perfect spot. In extreme temps, bringing inside or covering in the winter is good. Sun and rain are both hard on wood, so protecting as much as possible from these elements is key.
We will ship our fan chair to any business location in the lower 48. Alaska, Hawaii, and the Florida Keys is much more expensive; convo me for shipping info if you are from any of these areas. An extra $85 must be charged to deliver to a residence, so let me know if you cannot accept delivery to a nearby business. (We deliver by common carrier and this can get expensive; we are trying to keep shipping costs as low as possible.)
To save all the shipping costs, you may pick up your rustic chair at The Bent Tree Gallery, just north of St. Louis, Missouri. Or you may come to our workshop north of Kansas City, Missouri. We would love to help you save money! Otherwise, we ship by common carrier.
Before purchasing, please send us your zip code and let us know whether you desire a home or business delivery. We will compute shipping and add it to your order.
THIS LISTING IS FOR ONE CHAIR. If you would be interested in purchasing the accompanying ottoman, please convo me for a custom listing. The ottoman sells for $145, and can be shipped inside the chair for no extra shipping charges.
Please allow 4 weeks for delivery.
