CHELSEA SHOWWOOD TUB                                                               CHELSEA FOOTSTOOL

This month as featured in our Shopping Directory advert in the House and Leisure Magazine, we are focussing on the Woodbender Chelsea Showwood Tub.

The Chelsea Showwood is a "showwood" adaptation of the popular Chelsea Tub, which is the fully upholsteres option. Both tubs are at home in both contemporary and whimsical settings as accent pieces.


The Chelsea Showwood combines the simplicity of African design and drama of wide solid bentwood components which results in a chair that is both iconic yet functional. The spoon backrest is made up of 4 bentwood pieces of solid natural ash timber. The seat and bottom brace ring are also solid bentwood using Woodbender's largest d-shaped bentwood components.

The Chelsea Showwood is a piece that we are very proud of and like to show off when given the opportunity. The tub can stand on it's own as a striking statement in a foyer or waiting room but when paired with it's footstool can become a day bed used in a large bedroom or sitting room.

The Chelsea Showwood has also been developed into a two seater version which is comfortable and would definitely be a conversation piece in any room.


We are a South African company intensely proud of our country, our team of local craftsmen and our unique wood bending process which is both an art and a science. The Chelsea Showwood is a unique interpretation of the essence of our company.
