If a single piece were to be chosen as an icon for the artistry and craftsmanship of the Newport cabinetmakers, it would be difficult to suggest one better than a John Goddard corner chair.  It is a symphony of curves and a testament to the sculptural abilities of John Goddard and his sons. This chair has cabriole legs and stiles, and both the seat rails and splats are serpentine. Four open-talon Goddard ball and claw feet anchor it firmly to the ground. The slip seat is upholstered in premium top-grain leather. 

This chair is an exacting replica of the original. Mr. Greene is the authority in crafting Newport corner chairs. The result is a Goddard corner chair of absolute authenticity and unrivaled craftsmanship.
