Heywood-Wakefield’s signature “Dog Biscuit” Dining Arm Chair is a mid-century modern classic, widely considered one of the most recognizable chairs in the world. It’s also been named second-most comfortable dining chair in America (following one that costs more than twice as much).
The prototype for this stylish seat came from famed New York designer Count Alexis de Sakhnofsky in 1931. The chair found instant popularity when it was put into production years later, after the company’s renowned post-WWII designer W. Joseph Carr tweaked the design.
The unique ergonomic back rest gives this dining chair its “Dog Biscuit” nickname. The gentle curves throughout the piece give it an elegant air that makes it perfectly suited to any entertaining needs. At the same time, its simplicity keeps it from ever appearing too formal for any home’s dining room.
The solid Northern Yellow Birch adds natural beauty to its space, and the construction is as sturdy as can be. The high-quality seat cushion won’t sag or lose its shape, either. Have the chair upholstered with any of our fine fabrics displayed below, or send us one from your own source and we’ll use it at no charge.
18″ W x 16″ D
17 3/4″ H (seat frame), 20″ H (top of uncompressed cushion)
32″ H (back)
