Fine yew wood rocking chair with one piece elm seat. Fantastically comfortable and beautiful to look at with rich and warmly coloured grain and finish.
The chair is made from the trees that fell during the great storm that ravaged Britain in October 1987. In total 15 million trees were blown down during the storm - a legacy still visible today. The result was a glut of British hardwood and cabinet makers and furniture manufacturers soon got busy making all sorts of furniture, some mass produced pieces, and other pieces like this beautifully hand crafted yew wood rocking chair.
