This Ash chair is possibly going to be for a book shop with a children’s section. It is also strong enough for an adult to stand on. It has 5 grown bends and 2 steam bent parts.

Coppiced wood is used for chair making and to make the under-frame of the table. The table top is made from mature Ash sawn and seasoned in planks. English Ash usually gets brown streaks in it as the tree gets older.
Logs are split using a Froe & cudgel into quarters. The cudgel is laying on the ground in the photo.
