Kyoto Chair

Store Closing - Sorry, Orders Cannot Be Placed At This Time
8 - 10 weeks

The aesthetic ideals common to traditional Japanese design and Western Modernism are on display in the Kyoto dining chairs. Its broad surfaces and simple geometry give way to the naturally complex beauty of Kyoto’s solid Walnut grain. Following the principle that we define our surroundings and our surroundings define us, qualities such as Simplicity, Asymmetry, Understatement and Naturalness come together in Kyoto to produce a design that subtly brings the mind to a state of tranquility or active-calm.

  • Sidechair
    • 19 3/4"W x 21"D x 33"H
  • Armchair
    • 22 3/4"W x 21"D x 33"H



All pieces are crafted in solid American black walnut hardwood and are finished with a low sheen (10 sheen) top coat. Walnut is known for its rich brown patina that grows lusturous with age.

Natural hardwoods have specific characteristics that make them warm and appealing to the eye. Swirls, knots and burls are some characteristics that contribute to the natural beauty of finely crafted hardwood furniture. Hardwoods oxiodize, or change color, from exposure to direct light. The color of the wood will deepen over time and take on a warm glow and soft patina.


Preservation and stewardship are values that run deep in Vermont. Copeland takes pride in the quality of the environment and the natural beauty that surrounds them. They also interact with the natural environment in a more intimate way than our friends in more developed areas. 

The Northern Forest is among the healthiest in the world and is actually growing in terms of standing biomass. The capacity of the Northern Forest to absorb carbon dioxide is growing each year. The forests of Vermont are no exception, now covering over 85% of the landscape. The lumber Copeland uses comes from within 500 miles of their factory. Living and working in and near the regions that supply their raw materials means that far less fossil fuel is consumed and less carbon dioxide emitted through transportation.

Furthermore, a recent independent research study,* commissioned by the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and conducted by a team of international experts confirms that:

  • U.S. hardwoods derive from legal and well managed forests. Hardwood procured from anywhere in the hardwood states could be considered Low Risk in all five Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) controlled wood risk categories.
  • There exists, a low risk that U.S. hardwoods are produced from controversial sources as defined in the Chain of Custody standard of the Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC).
  • The U.S. hardwood-producing region can be considered low risk for illegal and non-sustainable hardwood sourcing as a result of public and private regulatory and non-regulatory programs.

Copeland Furniture was awarded Silver Exemplary Membership Status.

Care & Maintenance

When Copeland makes a piece of furniture, they hope that it will be used and cherished by generations to come, so they have created a clear finish that is silky, smooth to the touch and still tough enough to stand up to the wear and tear of daily family activities.

General Caring for Wood

To preserve the beauty of the finish, simply clean the surface of the furniture with a soft damp cloth and then dry it thoroughly. Care over the years to come will not require oil, polishes, or cleaners.

Care Instruction
  • While Copeland's furniture has been finished with a durable top coat, the surface may be sensitive to dents and abrasions during the first 30 days in your home.
  • Treat the surface finish gently so it does not dent or chip. Tape or stickers should not be put on the finish.
  • For general care use a soft cloth to dust the furniture.
  • Use damp cloth with a mild, pure soap to clean-up spills or dirt. Dry the surface thoroughly.
  • Please do not use any polishes, waxes or sprays to clean the surface of the furniture. This holds true for new Copeland Furniture pieces as well as items you may already have in your home.
  • Please do not place any candles directly on the surface of your furniture. The perfumes and dyes in the candles may penetrate the finish.

Cleaning by a professional furniture cleaning service only is recommended. CAUTION: Use of water based or detergent based solvent cleaners may cause excessive shrinking. Water stains may become permanent and unable to be removed with solvent cleaning agents. Avoid products containing Carbon Tetrachloride as it is highly toxic. To prevent overall soil, frequent vacuuming or light brushing to remove dust and grime is recommended.
  • S/W - Clean this fabric with the foam only of a water based cleaning agent or with a pure solvent in a well ventilated room (petroleum distillate based products, Energine, Carbona, Renuzit, or similar products may be used).

Leather Cleaning and Protection

Leather is a living material that becomes more beautiful over time if cared for correctly. Remember the following guidelines: Never place leather furniture closer than 20-30 cm from a radiator, or in direct sunlight. Vacuum clean frequently with a soft brush, and clean surfaces subjected to heavy wear, such as arm and neck rests, as required. Water-soluble stains are easily removed by soaking and blotting with kitchen paper. Never attempt to remove problem stains with strong solvents or chemical products. You could end up with a bigger problem that requires repairs. Instead, contact the shop that sold you the furniture and ask for assistance. If the shop staff cannot help you, ask them to contact the manufacturer for expert advice.

Cleaning and protection

To provide the best possible care for your leather furniture use a water based leather care program including a cleansing product (Leather Cleaner) and a protective product (Leather Protection).

Leather Cleaner

  • Leather Cleaner cleans the leather gently and delicately, which means it can be used frequently without risk of drying out the leather. Areas subjected to heavy wear, such as armrests, benefit from frequent cleaning.

Leather Protection

  • This product impregnates the leather, protects it from spills and stains and keeps it soft and supple. We recommend you treat your leather upholstery with Leather Protection after cleaning, ideally twice a year.
How to remove stains on leather

Marks from a ballpoint pen 

  • Erase gently. If possible, use the 'old' type of eraser intended for type-writing.

Chewing gum

  • Cool down the spot. Ice-cubes in a plastic bag work well. Remove the chewing gum as soon as it has become cold /stiff. If there are still remainders; heat with a hair-dryer and lift away carefully using tape.


  • Take away the redundancy. Heat with a hair dryer. Put soaking cloth on top and under the greasy spot. 'Soak' the rest with potato flour - wipe off the remainders with a sponge.

Fat greasy spots

  • Take away the redundancy. Dab/soak with a dry cloth. Leave the remaining fat as is - and it will over time 'wander' into the leather.
