There is something rustically majestic about the Maritime chair and it has very much to do with the fact that it was modeled after seafaring ships. It was created using traditional wooden boat building techniques, as is evident right off the bat do to its aesthetic.

Conceived by British designer Benjamin Hubert for Casamania, the Maritime chair is made out of solid and laminate ash wood that has been skinned internally into a formed plywood shell. Although the ribs are visible for a couple of reasons (namely for support), I love that it gives this otherwise minimalist piece of furniture some added detailing.

Perfect for city homes and country cottages, the Maritime chair is elegant and sleek. The range is also offered in translucent dyed colourways.
