Finewood Furniture


Inspired by, and named after, the designer Garth Chester, who was considered by many to be New Zealand’s answer to Ray and Charles Eames. The Auckland-based designer, most prolific in the 1950s - 60s, pioneered the use of bent plywood and is best known for his iconic Curvesse Chair, a highly covetable piece of mid-century design.

The Chester is upholstered in Dolly fabric from the Warwick range.

Fixed back with button detail. Tapered wooden legs, natural or dark stain.

Available in three sizes, a 2, 2.5 or 3 seater.
