Lucky Acorn Chairs
Quality Chairs Made The Old Way
Tom Lynch studied art and sculpture, but his passion began with an apprenticeship in chairmaking in Upshur County, West Virginia, where he learned to build what is locally known as a "Linger" chair. This Early American design was used by Waitman T. Linger, who made chairs in Upshur County from the 1880's through 1950. Tom now builds chairs in a "Shaker-inspired" style, in addition to a rustic "twig" style, which allows for more sculptural innovation.
These chairs, both comfortable and elegant, have been inspired by the clean lines and impeccable craftmanship of American Shaker furniture from the mid-19th century. Tom makes them in several varieties of hardwood -- oak, cherry, walnut, or curly maple.
