Acorn Antiques, 39 High Street, Dulverton, Somerset. About Us

The Howard Stool is made to complement the Howard Chair which epitomizes English country house interiors. Our handmade copy is upholstered in the traditional way in our own Somerset workshop. The price is fully inclusive apart from the price of the fabric. We are agents for many fabric manufacturers and are happy to arrange for fabric samples to be sent to you or we can cover in your own fabric. Leathers samples are also available if required. Loose covers are available. Delivery is by carrier and invoiced separately. Please stipulate whether you require turned legs or tapered legs with or without castors which have either brown or white ceramic wheels or brass wheels. *Please allow for extra fabric if your choice has a large repeat.

 All Howard Chairs are built in the traditional manner using experienced craftsmen and the finest quality materials. All frames are solid beech and hand finished. Legs are French polished and hand waxed providing a rich texture. Seats and backs have double cone springs sewn to jute webbing throughout, fixed at the waist and the top to maintain balance and support. A cane edge is formed to stabilize the front of the seat, Hessian is then stitched in place and fixed overall. The top cover is fixed and stitched over an insulation/padding of rubberized hair and cotton felt prior to covering. Cushion fillings are 100% white china duck feather with other options available. Castors are solid brass with ceramic wheels in brown or white. Legs are turned or tapered. All materials conform to British Standard Regulations. We can arrange delivery with carriers. We at Acorn Antiques also provide period Howard Sofas and period Howard Chairs when in stock as well as Victorian Sofas, Leather Sofas, Leather Chairs, Howard Stools, Antique Sofas and Antique Chairs. We can also reproduce contemporary designs and offer a bespoke furniture service. Email or ring to discuss your requirements
