The secret to the perfect dining chair was discovered about fifty years ago by my father and he bottled it and put it on a very high shelf. What he came up with was something that he called the Glendale platform, a basic frame around which all manner of dining chairs could be fashioned. The platform was ingeniously designed, incredibly versatile and strong and has become our preferred method for constructing beautiful dining chairs. Our Caile is a slim legged low profile dining chair based on the Glendale platform and so has a strength that belies its slender appearance. It is very simple yet elegant and comfortable and comes in low and high backed versions each with a twin button detail. It can be made in a show timber of your choice and covered in any number of fabrics and is also available as a carver with slim set back arms and a slightly wider seat. We can also make you a fabulous dining table to any size from the same timber stock thus ensuring a perfect match.
