Bringing one of Elia’s chairs into your family earns you the gratitude of at least eight generations!

In 2001, at 17 years old, Elia was enthusiastic and single-minded. He wanted to make Windsor chairs using hand tools and came to apprentice with me. Over 15 years, I have had the pleasure of watching Elia develop into one of the finest chairmakers and chairmaking instructors in the country.
