Winston Churchill Limited Edition Armchair

By Uncategorised

A Rare Opportunity to acquire a Winston Churchill Limited Edition Armchair, No 85 of 125 for Sale.

Stewart Linford Chairmaker created the famous Winston Churchill chair at the dawn of the new Millennium at his historic Kitchener Works.
The limited edition of just 125 chairs was fully subscribed. He styled the chair on a High Wycombe classic Windsor chair termed: The bergere bow.
Dating back to early Victorian times the chair’s generously curved back and seat deserves it’s description: ‘the most comfortable Windsor’.
Apart from it’s rarity and comfort the chair boasts a wealth of unique features including:
  • Hand-crafted using solid English walnut frame and one-piece seat, finished to an ultra smooth must-touch feel using traditional oil polish.
  • Secret humidor drawer crafted from Spanish cedar and oak from Blenheim Palace, complete with a trio of Romeo y Julieta, Winston Churchill cigars, humidistat, Dunhill gold plated cutter and brass hygrometer.
  • A brass plate secured to the seat underside is inscribed with the climax of Churchill’s Finest hour speech, plus a piece of WWII brass shell case.
  • Hand-carved lettering and top rail depicting our Greatest Briton, the white cliffs of Dover and RAF fighters over the English Channel.
Very rarely do these chairs come onto the market, we are proud to offer this superb example for sale @ £5,000 fully including delivery to UK mainland and VAT.
As part of an earlier auction sale lot the same provenance chair made £7,400.

With just one of these fine chairs available now I look forward to hearing from you on 07468 493253

Special Mad March Hare Event

By Events

In response to the current interest in our Stock Pieces and Limited Editions, we are organising a special event on the weekend of the 28th and 29th MARCH.   Whether you are looking to refresh your home for spring, get involved with this summer’s celebrations for Magna Carta, Agincourt and Waterloo or bag an incredible bargain, you will enjoy this event.

By popular demand, we are arranging an extensive display of available stock to be displayed in the showroom and workshops to create a unique opportunity to enjoy the benefits of buying stock pieces. As well as offering even better value, stock pieces are available for immediate delivery. A selection of previously owned pieces will also be available, some even on the basis of any reasonable offer being accepted. Why not come along and enjoy visiting the workshops and take advantage of our decades of experience in creating and looking after the finest hand crafted furniture.

Should your exact requirements not be fully available from stock, we can of course create any other pieces exactly as you require them to complement any stock purchases and existing furniture. We can even refurbish or remodel your existing pieces.   We will be happy to help you with those important decisions when choosing the furniture for you to enjoy and others to envy.

As the crescendo builds for the summer celebrations for the signing of the Magna Carta and the Battles of Agincourt and Waterloo, we will be pleased to let you explore our limited editions that are already well subscribed. Many will remember how our Trafalgar pieces were so heavily over subscribed that they rapidly appreciated even before the event.

With ample free parking and easy access, why not enjoy the weekend at Luxury in Wood ahead of the Easter mayhem and enhance and refresh your home in time for start of the spring season.
