The chair you are viewing is of similar construction to our traditional beech chair but having a more simplistic crest rail. As you can see in the photograph one chair has been polished, the other in the white. These chairs are well seasoned and as you can see from the chair with no polish on, the rich colour of the cherry has really come through on the crest rail. Therefore we would recommend to polish these chairs in a darker cherry colour than is shown in the photograph. Please contact us to discuss the options.
