Tappan Chairs, LLC
Tappan Chairs are quintessential New England furniture and have been handcrafted in Sandwich, New Hampshire for nearly two centuries. Simple and elegant, Tappan Chairs are similar in appearance to Shaker furniture, yet developed independently and concurrently to that movement as a secular statement of handmade, homespun craftsmanship.
Historically made from white ash and hard maple, the Tappan Chairs of our time also offer their signature styles in cherry and walnut—for a beautiful and surprisingly contemporary feel which highlights what the brand has become over nearly two hundred years of evolution: a line of fine furniture. In 2015 we were honored with the designation of becoming the only authorized crafter of the “Alfred Chair”, the historic chair of the living Shaker community at Sabbathday Lake in New Gloucester, ME.
Offering full-service picture framing with custom woodworking capabilities and an extensive selection of frames, mats, glass and all materials related to framing from all over the world.
Will Lehmann began his picture framing and woodworking business as “Surroundings” in Oregon in 1973. He moved to Sandwich in 1977, continuing his business in his uncle’s barn and the second floor of Adams Hall until he moved it downtown to the building where Jim Hambrook now has his office. Relocating into the garage next door, he reincarnated his business into Miter Man in the 80s.
In the 90s he moved his business to the studio he built on Schoolhouse Road and became “Will Lehmann Frames”, expanding his business to include making frames for other framers around the country while continuing fine framing for individual clients in Sandwich.
Will treats the artwork that he frames, whether it be an old sock or a Renoir, with as much respect, in terms of materials and procedures, as his clients are willing to accommodate to insure the preservation of their treasures. He also prizes the collaboration between himself and his clients to meet their particular and individual aesthetic tastes, taking into account the unique character of their home or work environment.
