Classic Ladderback Armchair

The quintessential ladderback armchair, made perfect by Brian Boggs.

The Classic Ladderback has been at the center of Brian’s focus since he began producing handmade chairs over 30 years ago. He started with the primitive form of greenwood chair making, and as his skills evolved, applied everything he learned to the ladderback.

After more than a decade of development, we are proud to offer you comfort, stability and attention to detail in this award-winning ladderback armchair design. A timeless choice for head seats at a dining table or for standing alone. Post-and-rung construction with steam bent back and woven seat.



Cherry, oak, maple, or walnut.


Woven in your choice of Shaker tape (colored canvas strips). Natural bark may also be available depending on timing and quantity.

    One of two chairs we now have. The finesse of the detailing is an endless delight – and actually sitting in it is a very special experience. The way the back fits and supports the body (any body!) is astonishing.

    We’ll be saving our nickels and dimes to buy more.

    It’s sturdy, comfortable and really beautiful!! I sit in one every day and my clients sit in one and seem to love it. The very first purchase we made from Brian but certainly not the last! We love his functional art. A real treasure.
