Anna Liffey Arm Chair

From $4,200

Inspired by an antique chair Charles found in the family flour mill in Ireland many years ago, this chair incorporates the “fork back” detail found on the original.

Anna Liffey was the name of the mill that sits on the River Liffey that flows into the center of Dublin, seven miles away. 

The Anna Liffey collection is characterized by a delicate “x” that repeats itself in a linear pattern. The end result is a design that has enormous delicacy and finesse. In its smaller version it appears like a fretwork or frill.  Hand-carved beads on back and hand-carved curls on arm make this chair our most refined design.
