What is The Downing’s cushion and foundation composed of?
The Downing’s cushion features a high-resiliency Ultracel core with a microfiber wrap, which offers a structured and supportive seat. Interwoven strips of rubber webbing form the seating foundation.
What are the legs made out of and what finish options are available?
Our artisan partners hand select each material for its beauty and unique character. The Downing’s legs are expertly handcrafted using solid maple, a robust Appalachian hardwood. Our maple wood is domestically sourced from forests in the eastern United States and has been certified and verified sustainable by the US forest Association.
The Downing’s legs are completed with your choice of four lacquered hues specially finished to highlight the natural grain and character of the wood. Due to the natural materials used, each piece will possess a unique, one-of-a-kind character and may slightly vary.
Can I order wood finish samples?
Wood finish samples for The Downing are available for order here. Please note, variation in grain and texture is to be expected between your wood sample and final piece, given the natural materials used.
Are legs removable for delivery on The Downing Chair?
The legs on The Downing Chair, which are made of solid maple wood, are integral to the handcrafted frame and are not removable for delivery.
These chairs are exactly the look I was going for in the sitting nook. They’re construction is sturdy and they provide great comfort. I ordered the Indigo and I love them!
I purchased the Downing chair in camel leather and I absolutely love it. It fits perfectly in my NYC apartment and brings the perfect amount of rustic coziness to the room. The craftmanship is top notch. Maiden Home was so easy to worth with and I highly recommend ordering the fabric swatches before you settle on a color. It was nice to be able to see the fabrics in the room for a few weeks and then make a decision.
We recently received our Sullivan sectional in Ecru Performance Weave, and 2 Downing chairs one with ottoman, in Midnight Velvet and we could not be more thrilled!!! The furniture is so beautiful, and perfect for our family room. It definitely gets daily use but always looks great! The sectional and chairs are super comfortable. There is good support but not “hard”. There’s enough give to make it super comfy and cozy. The dogs are loving it and even dirty paw prints clean right up. The quality of this furniture for the price is amazing! We have spent way more money in the past and haven’t gotten furniture this well made and stylish. I will be buying from Maiden Home again and I can’t say enough about how great the entire buying process, from swatches through delivery, has been. Excellent excellent service and product. Well done Maiden Home.👍🏻
I am absolutely in love with my Downing Chair and Ottoman -- it looks absolutely perfect in our bedroom and it's so cozy and comfortable! Not only am I happy with my purchase, but the Maiden Home team has been absolutely amazing -- I love the personalized service and attention. I would definitely recommend Maiden Home to friends and family -- great products, great service, beautiful pieces!
I was very reluctant about ordering a custom chair online, but have to say I am very pleased and would definitely order again from Maiden Home. From the start of the process with sending out swatches to the regular customer service follow up and then finally to receiving the chair, I have been impressed. I love the chair. The quality is excellent and the customer service is top notch. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
