Behind the design – Hester chair

Extra chairs are going to be in much demand in the coming months – the festive season is all about ‘squeezing another one in’ at the table. Our Hester chair and table range is timeless and easy to slot into any space. With cool retro style and a selection of bold and neutral colours, Hester can stack up in the corner until needed or work for every day use.

Its design draws on the colourful and bustling café culture of Amsterdam’s canal-side eateries. The chair comes in a matt powder coat finish, setting off the ply oak veneer seat.

Habitat’s in-house designer Matthew Long recently visited the European factory to watch Hester being made: ‘It’s great to see the process from start to finish. When I visit factories I always ask lots of questions about how each piece of machinery works, how the team use tools, boffin stuff, really. The teams are always really focused but patient, like this guy – all smiles!’
