Always Idiosyncratic

Like Henry Studley, we do not know much about the personality of Samuel Gragg.  Obviously we can deduce from his Elastic Chair that Gragg was both aesthetically and technically adventurous.  While he made the Elastic Chair for only a few years before moving on to more typical chair forms (read: more profitable) even then he could be a bit outside-the-box.

Recently reader BrianA sent me a link to a current “For Sale” Gragg chair that is sorta Windsor, using that descriptor very loosely.

I’m thinking I would have liked this guy.
