This off-white set of six dining chairs shows British influence on Swedish design in the late 18th century. Made in the Lindome area of Sweden, known for its historic chairmaking, this model is referred to as “wasastolar” or “vasatol.” The name translates to “wheat-chair” coming from the carved relief of a wheat bundle seen at the top of the five bowed vertical slats that make the backrest. The chairs also feature a finely carved flower at the front of each seat, as well as contoured curved cutouts on the sides and front. One out of the six has a slight variation in the contouring on the sides, it may have been repaired at some time causing the small difference. These chairs are recently reupholstered, sturdy, and comfortable; ready to take their country elegance to any space.
