The brilliant architect Frank Lloyd Wright created the first barrel chair and famously scolded clients who wanted to make any modifications.
Carlyle has since adapted the design. You can select your cushion fill, choose your fabric and we can even put on a swivel on it, if you like. Just don’t tell Frank.
- Depth 29"
- Width 29"
- Back Height 29.5"

Any chair can be ordered with or without a swivel feature. All chairs are built by hand and one at a time in our factory. Our ability to personalize the arm and back heights, seat width, cushion fills, and upholstery details guarantee that you will receive a unique piece tailored only for you.
Built Just For You
At Carlyle, each customized piece is built just for you. They vary in size, style, and material. Our sales associates will be happy to gather a quote for your specific design.
Each Chair Includes
A true hardwood frame
We source all maple, oak, and poplar wood from the Northeast while limiting our carbon footprint. Our hardwood supplier practices environmentally friendly timber harvests. Each harvest is planned far in advance in order to maintain wildlife and plant life.
The key to building heirloom quality furniture lies in the construction. Every corner is glued, double doweled, screwed, and reinforced with blocks, producing strong, well-supported joints that will never detach. We use hardwood that is kiln-dried, so it won’t warp. Each Carlyle piece maintains its stability and shape over time, so the frame lasts for generations.
Superior level fabric
