WELSH STICK CHAIR
The Meirion

"The earliest known surviving record of a Welsh Stick Chair can be found illustrated on the 12th century manuscript of the Laws of Hywel Dda who by 942 AD ruled over most of Wales. The document contains an illustration of a Judge sitting on such a chair."

My preference has always been for the finer Welsh chair designs with a high back. These chairs are sometimes called "The Storyteller’s chairs" echoing the Bardic tradition.

The Meirion Welsh Stick Chair is my interpretation based on the improved designs by John Brown, the famous chair maker and designer. It is a relative of both the Celtic Three Legged Back Stool and the American Windsor.
