Gallery / Rhode Island Low Back

The Rhode Island Low Back is a very strong chair with a three piece sawn arm, turned back spindles and a very roomy D-shaped seat. The undercarriage is interesting with two Philadelphia Style legs in front and two baluster style legs in the rear; it also has an X stretcher instead of the traditional H style. The seat height and arm height are taller than all the other chairs.

This was the first chair style introduced in New England around 1760.
