Blackwood Single Werriwa Lounge

The Werriwa is one of our best loved designs; it’s superbly comfortable, beautifully crafted, looks “right” and is easy to alight from! The judges at the 2009 Furniture Industry Association of Australia's "Australian Furniture of the Year Awards" were unanimous in their praise for the Werriwa, awarding it "Excellence in Furniture Using Leather". The Werriwa was also awarded Open Champion at the Sydney Timber and Working with Wood Show in 2006 for craftsmanship and design. The Werriwa is made in our Queanbeyan workshop by Australian craftsmen who are committed to excellence. The upholstery is done by local company Smart Upholstery using the leather colour of your choice. “I have just bought three hand-made [Werriwa] chairs from Evan. They are beautiful and unbelievably comfortable to sit in, this is a great Canberra enterprise” Peter D, Hughes, ACT, 2015. We have three Werriwa singles in stock ready for immediate delivery (pending leather).

The height, width and depth of the Werriwa can be customised to suit an individual client’s needs. Like all our chairs, the support and shaping of the back is provided by flexible laminated timber slats. We use the finest full grain Paloma leather for our upholstery.

The Werriwa Lounge was designed in 2005 and has been in small batch production ever since. We carry limited stock of finished frames (see the online store) and usually build to order. Over the years, we have made Werriwas for clients in blackwood, jarrah, red gum, red stringybark, white oak and American walnut.

“I have always loved show-wood lounges. Fred Lowen of Fler [and later Tessa] is one of my favourite designers and he was a master of the form. The construction logic of the Werriwa is quite different from those classic 50’s, 60’s and 70’s designs, but I admit the aesthetic is just a little retro. Your back will love you for this chair.” Evan Dunstone.
