Sabine Chair

The Sabine chair was designed as an “everyday” chair for Australian families. It is beautiful, strong, physically light, environmentally friendly, ergonomically designed and unpretentious. Denis Brown of Corsair Sustainable Timbers calls it "Australia’s best chair".
Shipping and delivery information

Priced from $781.00 inc. GST

Environmentally Friendly- The Sabine is made from blackwood “shorts”- oddly sized stock left over from the milling and docking process. Timber shorts are often under-utilized and can even go to waste. The vibrant natural colour variations and swirling grain of the beautiful Victorian blackwood is a feature of the design.

Choice- The frame of the Sabine is available in clear, black, or deep red. The Sabine normally features a lacquer finish but is also available in an oil/varnish finish (POA).

Available- The Sabine can be ordered online using the Enquire about this Product button. We can get you a shipping quote within 48hrs. Sabines can be seen at Dunstone Design in Canberra or Davis Furniture in Melbourne. Customized Sabines are also available from Eclipse Hand Made Furniture, Sears Morton and Thor’s Hammer.

Guarantee- We are so confident that you will love your Sabine that we offer you a 20 day cooling off period. We will pick up any Sabine at our expense and refund you the full purchase price (including any delivery costs) if you are not entirely happy with the Sabine within 20 days of you receiving the furniture.

Versatile- The Sabine is ideal around the every-day family table, in the holiday house, in the casual dining area, as restaurant seating, as a study chair or as a side chair in the living room.

House of Dunstone- Dunstone Design is famous for our award winning contemporary hand-made chairs. The careful timber selection, extensive hand shaping and complex joinery comes at a price that does not always meet everyone’s budget. The Sabine is a “distilled” design that has many of the essential ingredients of a Dunstone Design chair, but comes at a price that is more accessible to younger families. The Sabine is offered under the House of Dunstone brand. If Dunstone Design is Haute Couture, House of Dunstone is Ready-to-Wear.

“A good chair is an invitation to sit. The Sabine is the child of nearly 20 years of considering ergonomics and designing chairs; it is wonderfully comfortable”Evan Dunstone
