Aaron Scaturro's fan back chair, a new take on a classic Windsor chair, in walnut, ash, maple, or cherry, features ebony wedges and hand-turned legs and spindles, and deeply carved seat. It is $2,600 at his dealer, BDDW.
A self-taught woodworker, Scaturro is Brooklyn-based and works with a team to design and to build his beautiful furniture. Other pieces include a milking stool, a variety of tables, and a crib.
The chairs, measuring 22 inches wide and deep by 36 inches high, are made by hand in American black walnut, curly cherry, bleached or natural maple, olive, ash, ebonized American black walnut, and charred ash.
Scaturro told the New York Times that he wanted the seat "to be really deeply carved, which presented practical challenges."
