Ladderback Chair

Definition: Ladderback Chair

This type of wooden chair is defined by a very high back that resembles a ladder. The back is made from two vertical posts held together by evenly spaced horizontal slats. The style, which is often used in dining rooms, evokes a farmhouse vibe. Ladderback chairs were especially popular among the The Shakers, who were known for crafting simple, unadorned wooden furniture.

I had 2 antique ladder back chairs from the 1800's in Upstate New York. We hung them on the wall for decoration and they looked great!! But alas, I lost custody of them in my divorce!!
