Handcrafted Holland Chairs at Barrington Court Workshops

The Holland family originally started up in business as boat builders over three generations ago. As the desire for wooden boats fell into decline with new fibreglass boats being used, the family evolved to become traditional cabinetmakers and has been making furniture for over 70 years. This art was then refined to the Windsor Chair making company of today.
