Our Orkney chairs are available in the standard three sizes, which have been made for generations: full-size, three-quarter size, and small size – otherwise known as gent’s, lady’s and child’s.

Most adults, male and female, will actually require a gent’s chair. The lady’s chair is more suitable for petite adults.
