Captain’s Vogue Chairs By Woodbender

WORDS Mary Garner

Local furniture manufacturer Woodbender is celebrating three decades of perfecting the art of bending solid wood.

Woodbender has specialised in the special process of bending solid timber to produce strong, durable and stylish furniture, and has become synonymous with quality in both the hospitality and domestic markets. True to Woodbender’s commitment to innovation, the Captain’s Vogue chair ushers in a new era for the traditional Captain’s Chair, using the on-trend minimalist design details of clean lines and a classic silhouette. This fresh twist on an old favourite coincides with Woodbender celebrating 30 years of business in 2018, so a nod towards one of its earlier designs is certainly fitting for the occasion.

The Captain’s Vogue looks elegant in the natural Ash finish with muted rose gold or grey fabric, but, as with all Woodbender designs, it is available in any of the standard timber finishes and the client’s choice of upholstery fabric.

In commemoration of the brand’s 30th anniversary, Woodbender has other exciting new releases planned, which can be viewed in conjunction with the full product range online or at the two Woodbender showrooms in Strand, Western Cape, and Parkhurst, Gauteng.
