This sleekly elegant chair is made of solid oak, chosen for its beauty, strength, and resilience. The precise nature of the slatted style demands a high level of craftsmanship: The slats and joints are mortise-and-tenon construction, and the components have been carefully selected and placed to maximize the compression and tensile strength of the wood grain. A rich satin finish reveals the character and beauty of the oak. McGuire commissions some of the world's most respected designers and rising stars to create collections with depth and personality. Crafting raw nature into a geometry of perfect proportion time and time again, McGuire creates a flawless harmony between form and material.
