One of the many Burke Chair threads asked for more information about a NEW OPTION that Ralph Miller is now offering -- a newly-crafted Burke Chair Back that DOES NOT require that the back of the chair be hacked down. Physically impossible? Ralph was up to the challenge.
First, here's what the chair looks like -- just a standard Burke 115, but with the blue paint on most of it (except the very top)...
We've used a mix of "cut down" and "no cutting needed" Burke chairs at STAR TREK CONTINUES.
The secret is a new type of chair back with VERY DEEP channel grooves on the sides of the padded back.
Same thing on the other side of the chair back...
Ralph signs all of his creations (these are dated "2016" and he offers them with the chair pad for $250.
Here's the final result -- just beautiful!
