High Wycombe’s longstanding tradition of celebratory Chair
Arches have inspired designers internationally while locally
serving as a symbol celebrating the town’s industry and identity.
Whereas in the past the furniture industry had been an active part
of High Wycombe’s character it has slowly become part of its
folklore. Bucks New University decision to close the furniture
design and restoration courses in 2015 and 2016 will mark yet
another milestone in its transformation.
