Product Description

The French Country Ladderback chair adds grace—and timeless beauty to almost any decor. The Ladderback chair is named for the horizontal slats across the back of the chair, resembling the rungs of a ladder. Often referred to as a "slat-back" chair, the back provides tall, upright support. Our French Country Ladderback has four elegantly scalloped slats adding french-style to this classic chair.

Constructed of solid hardwood, each chair is made with the highest-quality craftmanship. The dining chairs are a combination of maple and ash, making them lightweight and inherently strong, unlike chairs that contain composition or particle woods.

The high back of the dining chair complements beautifully with our farm table, or an elegant 72" round dining table. With proper care, ladderbacks are intended to last a lifetime.

The French Country Ladderback offers (4) durable seat styles: a molded "Wood" seat, hand-strung "Woven Seagrass" (rush) seat, "Snowshoe" (rawhide) seat, or "V-weave Seagrass" (rush) seat. Each seat style has a one-of-a-kind feel depending on your seat and paint/stain selections.

The ladderback dining chair can be finished in a two-tone combination of paint and stain (back/seat) entirely stained, or entirely painted with a wood seat selection.

This French Country Ladderback Chair complements French Country, English Cottage, American Farmhouse, Rustic, Transitional and Traditional style decors.
