A Ladderback for Modern Times

In Cio (pronounced chee – o, meaning renew in Latin), Brian Boggs renews the ladderback chair for the modern era.

Transitional Design

With ties to the early American ladderback design, this update integrates contemporary and modern design elements to fit into transitional, traditional or modern décor schemes.


While linen’s roots hold a respectable place in history, linen composite earns attention in modern manufacturing replacing carbon fiber and fiberglass as a green alternative in the boating, automotive, and airline industries.


The whole chair follows your form from the top of the back to the front of the seat. Our specially designed process bends the slats in two planes, yielding a slat that fits the sitter’s back with perfection.

Durable Joints

Focusing on the stress concentration at the seat to rear leg joint, a hickory rail inside the seat provides two nearly unbreakable tenons. To ensure that the joints last for centuries, the grain is oriented in the hickory rail so that the medullary rays are vertical, minimizing the stress from wood movement. Each tenon and mortise is tapered from base to tip to keep the glue in place during assembly and self-clamp to ensure the strongest bond possible.

Strength & Stability

The combination of veneers and linen composite not only provide great strength, they work together to form a dimensionally stable seat that will never crack and allow a lot more design freedom than traditional designs do. Combined with the joints, this approach provides enough strength to forgo bracing under the seat and allow the design to flow as naturally as the tree.


A combination of wood veneers and linen composite creates a super strong and flexible seat shell that bridges the hickory side rails. The fusion of veneers and linen composite work together to form a dimensionally stable seat that will never crack.
