We named the Douglas for our esteemed grandfather who was upright in character and ideals, and devoted to family. Always optimistic and looking ahead, we know he would really love a chair with an arch pointing skyward. A chair once owned by our grandfather’s law partner, Edward S. Graves, was the inspiration behind these chairs. At their heart is the distinctive Gothic scalloped edges, a unique ornamental detail accentuating the chair’s playful, decorative sophistication. The original source dates to the 18th century, but like all enduring design, our garden version remains timeless.
