We have some favourites from the James Harrison Furniture collection. The first is the Leather Norton Wing Armchair – this product is unique and oozes character with its high wings and buttoned leather back. The Norton Wing Armchair has a kiln-dried beech frame to minimalise warping and movement, a choice of 3 luxury leather colours, finished with solid oak legs. This chair would make a perfect pair in a reading room! Our second favourite product from James UK has got to be the Holton High Table. The Holton High Table is handmade from solid oak or walnut and is available in four different finishes; Oak, Walnut, Black or White. This product is perfectly paired with the Holton Bar Stool or maybe one of our other Stools.
