Great reasons to buy the Fredericia Trinidad Chair

  • With upholstered seat in a wide range of quality fabrics
  • Inspired by the intricate 'gingerbread facades' of colonial Trinidad that play with sunlight and motion
  • Works incredibly well in both private and public settings - as a dining chair or for use in auditoriums


Why you'll love this modern upholstered dining chair 

The Upholstered Trinidad Chair from Fredericia was designed by Nanna Ditzel and launched in 1993. Since then, it has enjoyed continued success for use in both private domestic and public spaces. With a light expression characterised by the cutout fretwork to the chair's plywood shell back, the Trinidad Chair was inspired by the 'gingerbread façades' of colonial Trinidad. 

“On Trinidad I saw how the facades of the houses nearly dissolves in light and shadow – almost like a lace – and I thought to myself: How can I use this for a chair?”

Utilising new CNC technology in which computers lead cutting tools for extra precision, the Trinidad chair was heralded as a breakthrough in modern design when first presented. The cutout back of the chair is not only decorative but also allows for proper ventilation and provides excellent acoustics. The chair has been popular for use in concert halls and auditoriums for this reason. The chair has an upholstered seat, and comes with optional felt glides.

I just wanted to express my thanks again for your great customer service. I ordered my items less than 24 hours ago and I’ve amended my order- yet I still have my order here with me now. You went out of your way to deliver my order and I’m very grateful. I wish more places had people like you :-)

I couldn't be happier with the custom made sofa bought through the online store. It is perfect and made all the more enjoyable by buying it through the guys at utility. Ben and Paul who delivered the sofa were amazing, kind and really helpful in a difficult situation (of course the lift broke when I was getting something delivered). Would highly recommend!

Just wanted to message and say that I'm a big fan of the Utility Stores and the types of products you guys sell. I work close by to the Manchester store at University Green, so I'm popping in a fair bit generally for cards, gifts, etc. I just nipped in again this afternoon about one product I'd bought earlier and the staff were super helpful and attentive. It made it really easy, and I was in and out in no time.

Just wanted to drop you guys a quick note to say how happy I am with the service I have had. Especially the two guys who delivered/carried into an awkward space/built/then took away the packaging, not to mention then gave me a lift into town. Thank you. Plus the sofa looks amazing. I will definitely be using you guys more in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who will listen.
