    • Material Description: Maple is a durable, timeless hardwood. Even after maple is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and may change color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. Our maple with charcoal stain features a hand-applied stain that was designed to easily mix with other woods and materials.

      Got the natural maple version of this chair. Love the simple but elegant design of this chair. The top bar of the back reminds me of the Japanese temple. Construction is great, no squeaking, height is perfect for me.

            Customer comments about Thatcher Side Chair:

            The chair design is beautiful and the walnut is very attractive - they looked great in our kitchen. However, out of six chairs, only two were perfect. All the others had a problem with the finish (either a missed spot or a drip, or a rub). I would have pursued replacing them but in the end, we returned them because they were a little too high which made them uncomfortable for us. High marks to R&B for their great and super easy return process and their commitment to our satisfaction though.

              Customer comments about Thatcher Side Chair:

              Out of all the dining chairs that Room & Board designs/makes, I think the Thatcher chair doesn't get nearly enough credit for its beautiful, simple design. In particular I admire how much the Thatcher chair reminds of me of chairs designed by George Nakashima, a Japanese-American furniture designer. Nakashima drew inspiration from both classic Japanese woodworking techniques and American Shaker aesthetics. I love that the Thatcher chair looks like a mix between a classic Windsor chair, with a slight Japanese aesthetic. You see these styles of chairs all over Scandinavian design blogs and within Japanese interiors. This one made by Room & Board is particularly well made and strikes the right balance between modern and traditional. It looks perfect in my small apartment; small spaces means that every design decision must count since I cannot have much in my home! The Thatcher chair communicates just the right simplistic, but elegant design that I hope to have in all parts of my home.
