Original Toby Chair in Pickled Oak
Elegant, comfortable & practical; this is the original Toby Chair with it's striking high back design. It folds up for easy storage and has been developed for a seductively comfy recline.
Made from beautiful, sustainably sourced FSC European Oak, every single piece is individually inspected, cut, drilled & finished. Oak is a much sought after hardwood; strong, heavy & durable. Our Pickled Oak range is inspired from a centuries-old scientific principle - Iron reacts with the tannin on the wood, and creates a beautiful black shade within the wood itself.
To achieve this finish, we firstly wash the Oak in a specially prepared Oak bark powder tea, and then using a solution of iron and vinegar, we wash the Oak several times until it becomes a consistent and beautiful jet black.
In addition to three coats of a high quality protective teak oil we use two further coats of a high-grade UV protective oil, to help to preserve the colour when used outside. We can recommend a suitable oil with UV protection for maintenance of your Pickled Oak chairs - application is straightforward.
We also offer a set of two Original Toby Chairs and a Toby Table. They form a lovely natural grouping and pack up tightly together for storage.
Want to go for all-out comfort? Add in a Toby Stool.
To top everything off, we highly recommend the amazing Floating Cushion, which fits neatly onto the high back of the chair and slides up an down for extra comfort.
Caring for Toby Chairs
The Pickled Oak Toby Chairs will quite happily withstand a quick rain shower, but we recommend that you bring the chairs inside if bad weather is forecast. To keep your chair in perfect condition, store it in a dry place and occasionally show it some love with a top up of protective oil - you can now buy teak oil in spray form, making it super quick and easy to coat.
