Originally designed around 1901 and named for Stickley's Eastwood factory near Syracuse, New York, this chair is an early example of Craftsman design and one of the most sought-after by collectors and connoisseurs. It must also have been a favorite of Gustav Stickley, who had them in his homes in Syracuse and in Parsippany, New Jersey. Like the original, the reissue is made of solid quartersawn white oak with pinned through-tenons. The impressive, solid quadralinear post, a distinctive feature of all reissued Mission Oak pieces, ensures that ray flake can be seen on all four sides, an improvement on veneered turn-of-the-century examples. Available in fabric or leather.
In general, caring for your Stickley wood furniture is as easy as light dusting, occasionally wiping it with a slightly dampened soft cloth, and protecting it from damaging extremes.
