What makes these chairs Irish? Generally Irish furniture closely follows designs of English furniture. Sometimes, though the designs can be quirky, or the proportions slightly different to English pieces. In the case of this pair of chairs the design and proportions are excellent, but there are a couple of details that give away the origin of these chairs. The shell motif whilst also used in English works is a favourite with Irish cabinet makers. Also the neat three pointed “trefid” foot is normally always associated with pieces from Ireland. With both of these elements incorporated in these chairs we can be fairly certain as to their origin.
