Bridle Chair from Michael Robbins

Hudson Valley, New York Visit Their Site

Michael Robbins is a seventh-generation Upstate New Yorker who crafts furniture in the former wool factory that has become his Hudson Valley workshop. His Bridle Chair is a traversal of classic and modern aesthetics, with angular lines and a bridge-inspired brass arch that explores concepts of strength through tension. The leather-laminated seat is secured with copper tacks, “as a nod to how simple and honest craft and building can be.” Made of black walnut from the Catskills region, the chair is also available in white oak, ash, and cherry, all sourced in Upstate New York.
