John Spivey Fine Furniture


The Legacy Chair is an homage to George Nakashima's iconic Conoid chair, but taken in a new direction with curves and ergonomics. This chair is made from a unique flitch of ambrosia walnut. The ambrosia beetle has streaked the walnut with black giving the wood an almost macassar ebony look. The seat is made from one board. I had prepared two matched chairs for this sale, but one is incomplete. Please contact me to buy the unfinished chair and arrange the delivery schedule. Pair the chairs with the walnut cafe/game table available in this auction and sit down to breakfast in beauty. The wood is finished with a proprietary natural, nontoxic varnish/oil hand rubbed to a satin feel and sheen. Price does not include shipping. After sale, shipping will be determined and a separate invoice sent. If you have questions or wish to talk  about a commission, contact me at 805.975.7616 or john@johnspiveyfurniture.com.  Dimensions: 36" H x 19"W x 19" seat depth, 22" overall depth. Ships from California

The chairs are elegant, masterfully crafted and so comfortable the way the chair holds the human body. You’re not just sitting in the chair, you are supported and comforted by its very design.

The design is modern with a shape so stunning that you think it defies the laws of physics.Yet, you are held in complete comfort in an exquisite chair that is itself a work of art. In addition to being beautiful, these chairs are also very strong and sturdy. I have had visitors up to 300 pounds sitting on them without even a squeak or creak.
