Choose FSC®-certified products

Ojai Upholstered Wood Frame Accent Chair

Ojai Upholstered Wood Frame Accent Chair

Pure Shaker-style construction meets the clean-cut cool of Danish Modern in our Ojai accent chair. A modern classic, the chair attends to detail in mortise-and-tenon joinery and softly turned edges. The oak frame angles back the tight seat and back cushions for a comfortable sit, while the shaped armrests are contoured with a rounded touch. Polyester-linen upholstery complements with the opulent look and soft hand of chenille. Impressive on its own, we especially like our exclusive Ojai armchairs doubled up a pair.

By choosing FSC ®-certified furniture, you are supporting responsible management of the world’s forests.
