ABOUT THE LOLLING CHAIR & OTTOMAN

To loll: to lounge, to lie back, to surrender. Skillfully shaped to emulate the curvature of the human form, and cushioned in silky-soft tufted leather, the aptly-named Lolling Chair is designed for pure relaxation. True to its purpose, this delightful design shifts effortlessly between upright and reclined in five distinct angles. Whether admiring a treasured work of art or a heavenly vista, or if enjoyed only for a moment’s quiet reflection, the Lolling Chair is built equally for comfort and contemplation.

The design of the Lolling Chair references the ubiquitous form of a post-WWII porch chair built by the Heywood Wakefield company from Massachusetts. Wakefield’s chair was made of yellow birch and stained a honey maple, with all rounded corners and awning-like canvas cushions, and in its day could be found on countless porches and sunrooms. Our Lolling Chair serves the eye and the body at rest in the living room, in the den, at home, or in the office.

The five-position back transforms the angle from upright to reclined using an adjustable brass rod. The removable headrest is also adjustable. Curved armrests with our hand-rubbed finish provide tactile richness.

A CABINETMAKER'S PERSPECTIVE
The Lolling Chair has been a long time favorite of our customers and one of our best sellers for many years. Cabinetmaker Bob Cabral (holding a freshly-cut Lolling Chair arm) joined our team in 2003. Bob's furniture making talents are wide-ranging, but the Lolling Chair remains one of his favorite pieces to build and he has built a countless number of them for customers all over the world (if you already have yours, take a peek underneath and you just might find his signature).

In the following video clip, Bob is working on assembling the arms of a Lolling Chair and wedging the arms and legs to the base. He will eventually trim off the exposed top of the wedges and sand them so smooth that a rub of the hand will not distinguish between the wedged-tenon joint that holds the arm in place and the surface of the arm itself...
