Wow! We are in love with these Post-Modern treasures! I don’t know whether you should use these interesting and wonderful maple hand crafted chairs or put them on a pedestal. Comprised of solid maple. The back and back legs are in the shape of a capital printed “I” and the front pair of legs an “H” with the crossbar set low. There is a square crossbar from the front to the back tying the sets of legs together. A thinner square formed of planks of maple makes up the seat which is supported by the tops of the “H” uprights and intersects the column of the “I”. The seat has a “U” shape slightly carved in it that perfectly cradles your rump. These would be the perfect spot to sit to put on your shoes or they could double as night stands or side tables. Maybe that extra seating you need in the kitchen. Surprising to their hard and blocky look they are quite comfy. The chairs are signed by the artist, Brice B. Durbin, and dated March 1996 in Topeka, Kansas. We have been unable to locate him or find any information about him. But whoever and wherever he is, he did a marvelous job!! You need to make these yours.
