Bertha Chair

Donna Wilson
Designer: Donna Wilson

Solid. A dependable character of the highest sort. 

 

Not precluding liveliness, colour, or a new take on tradition. 

 

This chair is named after Bertha Wilson, Canada’s first female Supreme Court Justice, a steadfast lawyer’s lawyer of modest origins. She did her job, and she did it well. She also blazed a trail.

 

The Bertha chair is traditional practicality and comfort, with a modern twist. The pattern, inspired by the hand-carved shingles on Brett House in Joe Batt’s Arm, covers the cushions in 100% lambs’ wool. The precise solid plank construction is as steadfast as the boat-building and “flour barrel chair” traditions that inspired it, as well as the personality it was named after.
