This way your purchases aren't only carbon-neutral and earth-friendly, but are also guaranteed to last for decades to come.

Product Q&A

Whether you’re already a fan of walnut, or just starting out with your first ‘real wood’ pieces, we’re sure you have some questions. Here’s three that are commonly raised around this exquisite handmade handcrafted walnut dining chair.

Question #1 - How do I care for this chair?

This Scandinavian walnut dining chair will fit easily into your busy home, don’t worry. We do recommend using a fabric protecting spray on the upholstery for maximum lifespan, ensuring spills roll off instead of stain. Other than that, however, a dusting once a week with a dry cloth will see to the wood, and you can vacuum the seat as needed.

Question #2 - Do I need foot protectors?

This walnut dining chair comes with foot protectors already added, for added convenience. We also include matching replacement felt protectors in the carton, so you never have to worry if one comes loose or wears out.

Question #3 - What about matching my other walnut pieces?

Part of the beauty of a solid walnut dining chair is that this versatile wood will easily fit in with a variety of other walnut furniture. After all, the key beauty of walnut is that it can look subtly different, depending on what forest it comes from and even the cut of wood used. This means it’s easy to assemble a collection that’s all similar, but no peace cookie-cutter and identical.

Introduction to Icon By Design

At Icon By Design, we don’t think we should spend our brief time on earth making disposable things. So we build our furniture to last a long time, with a focus on natural, sustainable materials and craftsmanship. And we design our furniture to be minimal, elegant and timeless. Because we believe if you build a piece of furniture that is timeless, the moments that happen around it will be timeless as well. The furniture will hold an emotional value, above and beyond the dollar value. We’re not just making furniture, we’re making conversations and moments. We’re making our relationships richer. We’re making our moments more memorable. It’s not a table, it’s Boxing Day 2021. It’s not a media shelf, it’s “Kind of Blue” on a winter’s night. It’s not a chair, it’s the way your daughter sits when studying. Icon By Design isn’t simply a place where quality furniture is created. It’s where stories are made.
