Ironing Board Chair
Jefferson Chair | Bachelor Chair | Onit Chair | Three-In-One-Chair
AMERICA'S OLDEST AND MOST POPULAR THREE-IN-ONE-CHAIR
Also known as the Jefferson Chair-Bachelor Chair-Onit Chair
It’s one of the most versatile and historical pieces of furniture in American history, yet it is as versatile and useful today as it was in the 18th century. Some think it may have been actually invented by Thomas Jefferson, and call it The Jefferson Chair, others call it a Bachelors’ Chair; others call it a three-in-one-chair, or an Onit.
The Ironing Board Chair is the perfect home accessory, even in the most upscale homes. It is ideal in the master suite to reach up to high shelves in the master closets, to touch up wrinkles in the clothes, or use it at the vanity to apply makeup or to fix the granddaughters hair without having to bend over.
Use it in the kitchen as an extra chair or bar stool, then have the step ladder to reach the tall cabinets, use it as a plant stand, or even as a time out stool. It also makes the perfect kitchen work table especially when using grandmas’ clamp on apple peeler, which won’t clamp on to the newer granite counter tops. Truth is known many kids depended on it being their easy access to fresh baked cookies on the counter, and reaching up for a glass to top it off with milk.
Use it around the home to dust, change light bulbs or even trim the Christmas tree.
Perfect item for RVs and motor coaches, you have a ready step stool to wash the windshield, make it a ladder to work on canopies, an extra bar stool or chair and then an ironing board for quick touch up of so called wrinkle free clothing, and even a worktable for outdoor camping.
For apartment and small summer cottage dwellers, you have a very compact furniture quality all-in-one work horse that takes up very little space.
The Ironing-Board-Chair is even perfect for a small college dorm space.
No wonder why this one piece of furniture, a three-in-one-chair has become so widely popular for so many generations.
It starts as a chair or stool; people have used it for centuries to sit kids at the kitchen table, to cut the families hair, a kitchen work table or as a bar stool. Use it as a step stool or chair without changing positions. Perhaps this is where the name Onit originated from as you can do so many different things on it.
Flip it up and it becomes an ironing board, flip it on over and it becomes a step ladder.
The overall measurement at the base is 13-1/2” wide and 20” deep. The seat on the chair is 23” high; with a foot rest down 11” that is also 12” from the floor, the ironing board folds up to a comfortable 32-1/2” working height, and the ladder folds up to 38” tall with steps at 12” and 26” off the floor.
When homes were small and furniture was limited people looked for simply items that took little space but could be used for different purposes. The Ironing Board Chair fulfilled that need, and over the years it has been resized but the basic design has been maintained. A strong piano hinge keeps the folding part solid and strong.
Our Ironing Board Chair now ships in a smaller box at standard UPS rates. Cottage Craft Works has carried this Ironing Board Chair for some time, but the size assembled made shipping oversized cost prohibitive. We had our Amish builder redesign a version that will ship in a smaller box, yet would still be easy to assemble.
The new designed chair no longer uses the wooden knob covers (pictured top) on the sides for locking the chair into the various positions. The new chair will come with standard wing nuts. The new chair will also have a straight edge on the top step as pictured in all the other photos.
Now you can have a solid hardwood Oak Ironing Board Chair at nearly the same price as others sell a soft pine wood chair for.
The top and sides are shipped fully assembled. Screw on the steps, the cross supports, the top and you are done. The Ironing Board is actually built fully assembled in an Amish shop and then each piece is carefully disassembled and numbered for the customer to screw back together following the number sequence using square head wood screws.
The Ironing Board Chair comes completely finished in your choice of natural oak, medium stained oak, or dark red stain oak. Select options below.
Optional ironing board covers are also Amish handcrafted made from heavy cotton material with batting to keep the high heat away from the wooden top. Cover uses a simple draw string to snug the cover over and around the top edge. Color choices are white, blue, green, or burgundy.
Our Amish craftsman custom builds each Ironing Board Chair per order.
Please expect a 3-4 week build out period before your chair is shipped.
International customers: We are sorry but the box size is still too large to ship USPS Priority Mail.
