BRIAN BOGGS’ INSPIRED AND COMFORTABLE LADDER BACK CHAIRS

Brian Boggs’ ladder back chairs first took shape from classic Appalachian designs over 30 years ago. Co-Founder Brian Boggs worked his way through a woodworking book with some improvised woodworking instruments, zero power tools, and his own two hands. He then spent the next ten years refining the primitive prototype into an award-winning specimen of comfort, balance, beauty, and durability.

All of our ladder back chairs are handmade and ergonomically sculpted to fit every facet of the human form. Ergonomics are the key to comfortable seating in any piece of furniture, and each of our chair designs consider everything—not just back support. Whether you’re eating dinner in the classic three-slat side chair or reading in repose in the ladder back arm chair, every part is cut, chiseled, and turned with the human body and a comfortable posture in mind.

EXQUISITE ARTISAN CRAFTED APPALACHIAN-STYLE LADDER BACK CHAIRS HAND-BUILT IN NORTH CAROLINA

Our workshop in Asheville, North Carolina keeps us embedded in the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the Blue Ridge Mountains, informing our inclinations for more organic shapes, styles, and patterns in all of our work including our traditional designs like our ladder back chairs.

Our love of nature extends to our entire process of creating ladder back chairs. The joinery in our ladder back chairs is so strong on its own that we use zero metal parts in their construction. Any screws or nails would only loosen and fall out over time, causing further imperfections and structural weaknesses than well-maintained high-quality hardwoods. Check out the Chairmaker’s Journal to learn more about how these chairs are made, or sign up for a class on crafting them!

Brian Boggs Chairmakers also uses wood cultivated via sustainable forestry practices approved by the Forest Stewardship Council. We use only the highest quality, sustainably produced hardwoods available in our ladder back chairs and in all our custom furniture.
