​Lutyens Teak Garden Arm Chair Deluxe

Posted by

The Lutyens Teak Garden Arm Chair Deluxe is a regal chair and a charming addition to any exterior decor. The Lutyen chair made from sustainable sourced teak is a luxurious stand out; an elegant neo-classical design.

Teak, a tropical hardwood, is one of the preferred materials for outdoor lounge furniture. It is a sturdy, durable, and long-lasting wood which is native to the island of java. Sustainable sourced teak is derived from ecologically managed and sustainable plantations in Indonesia. There are strict policies in place for the trees in the use of manufacture. The number of trees available to be utilized is limited and replanting is required. The entire process is regulated by the government. Teak is especially resistant to rot, insects, and many the outdoor elements.

Sir Edwin Lutyens, one of the most highly regarded British architects of the 20th century, and his inspired designs for furniture, is considered by many to be one of the century's greatest. Most well-known for his architectural designs of buildings, homes, monuments, and other major works Lutyens also designed and created furniture! Today his legacy of furniture design lives on through his heirs who continue to manufacture Lutyen furniture based upon the many plans and sketches that he has left behind.

There are several very unique ideas apparent in the design of the Lutyens chair, which clearly set it apart from other furniture for the garden. The cylindrically shaped arms for example, they are quite grand looking and really add to the deeply seated feeling of the chair. Shapes like these are normally upholstered machette arms, here the same luxurious idea is presented in Teak, which seems to make perfect sense, creating an opulent yet outdoorsy look for the outdoor scheme. The stretchers, the horizontal supports at the base of the chair, are characteristic of his seating design style, and sit very low at the base of the legs. The width and its unique high back resemble a Tudor chair or throne, adding to a particular sense of glamor for an outdoor arrangement, which is clearly individual and unique.
