English term or phrase: a wooden chair
Hi,

First of all, do you actually have a single word for wooden, please?

Anyway, even if you don't have such a word, I still can't make up my mind which of the two is more natural: uma cadeira de Madeira or uma cadeira em Madeira…

Many thanks in advance,

Simon
