Vernacular Furniture and Decorative Arts in the Orkney and Shetland Islands have been heavily influenced by Norse traditions over many centuries, due to their geographic proximity to Norway. This graphically powerful chair owes a strong debt to the Scandinavian Folk Art Tradition and is a fine example of the rare regional vernacular style.
