Y Style Soaped Oak Wood Style Dining Chair

Color: Soaped Oak
In solid oak wood with a soaped finish and a natural woven seat. A single-piece curved backrest shaped using traditional steam-bending technique. 
No joints. Natural finish with a wax lacquer. Non varnished or coated.
The soaped wash finish gives the wood a softer matt look. Think rustic country farmhouse.
Please note: These are solid oak wood so will also have character, with wood knots, a mix of wood colouring rather than a uniform colour (as it was when a tree), and markings in the grain, so if you are looking for something with character and not uniform or processed looking these may fit the bill.

Delivery is by DPD tracked from our Sussex warehouse.

Also available in Natural Ash, Light Walnut Stain Ash and American Oak.

Height: 73cm (at rear highest point) x Seat Width: 48cm x Seat Depth: 42cm.

Full Width arm to arm: 55cm Seat height from ground: 42.5cm.

Front of Armrest height from floor: 69cm (as arms taper down from backrest)

Beautiful Soaped Oak Wishbone Chairs

These chairs are beautiful, well made and very comfortable. As we needed them to match a table we already had the team at Onske went above and beyond to help us get a set of four that were a perfect match and look amazing. We were very impressed with the care, attention and level of service we received from Martina and all the team at Onske. I would recommend this company and would give more then 5 stars if I could!

Wishbone chairs

Very good. A member of the Onske team responded to my question before I placed the order. Another time, a member helpfully questioned me to be sure before the order was dispatched.

Adam Trish
Beautiful, well made and fantastic quality!

The item itself is really well made. There is a lovely grain to the wood that is enhanced by the soaping method that brings out the character of the wood. The chairs are sturdy, not heavy and really comfortable to sit in. I was worried the short arms would hinder how you sit in the chair but this is not the case at all; you get the function of being able to rest your elbows on them without the bulkiness if a full arm getting in the way. I bought these with a Tulip Table and they slide underneath incase anyone is wondering about that.

In terms of Onske and specifically Martina - I am so impressed. Martina couldn’t have been more helpful and the level of service that I received was fantastic. I’ve bought items from Onske over the years and I will continue to do so because of the quality of the products and the way they treat their customers.

Lastly - the delivery and installation guys were equally as good. Arrived on time, quick, efficient and took all the packaging away.

Thank you Adam for your lovely review. It is greatly appreciated. Please may we ask permission to use your photo on our Instagram feed as you have created such a lovely setting there for the table and chairs. We appreciate your business and wishing you and yours a very happy 2023. Kind regards, Martina and team.

Quick and painless delivery.
