Sheraton and Hepplewhite tried to lighten the design of the original Chippendale chair, which even in the hands of the one who created it was a very heavy piece of work. Sheraton and Hepplewhite were successful in their attempts to modify the design and lighten the chair and to this day the modern Chippendale is comparatively slight next to just about every other chair of its type.
As you can see, there is an assorted variety of chairs out there. We have highlighted some of the key ones that you will most likely need in your home. Don't be afraid to purchase a statement chair on its own that will sit as a pretty piece in your home. After all, you can never have too much seating! Mixing and matching different styles can work well too, as can contrasting colours and different materials.
While choosing dining room chairs, it is important to consider the colors, designs, patterns, shape and fabrics. In the past, dining chairs were mostly made of wood, were straight-backed and sparse. These days, the best of modern dining chairs are made of rattan, wicker and metal. Modern dining chairs are generally high backed yet slim and easy to handle. Some of them are luxurious too. The egg chair is an example. The more sparse looking chairs are elegant, covered with delightful fabric and plumb cushions. Keep the fabric, color and pattern of dining chairs in line with the rest of the decor of the room.
Let us start with what most people associate with contemporary seating; thought provoking shapes and vibrant colours. These can provide a burst of colour to areas of your home you never thought possible. Plastics, in particular acrylic is a popular material used in modern chairs due to it being easily mouldable and durable. Eero Aarnio's ball and bubble chairs are a prime example of this; the way in which plastic is used to encapsulate the user in a cocoon-like surrounding, whilst simultaneously dampening outside sounds and amplifying inner ones, gives the user an individual seating experience. Acrylics are also used to construct extravert shapes that would be extremely difficult when using other materials. Silhouettes consisting of swirls, S shapes and sharp curves are dominant features of plastic chairs and will look amazing in most interiors aspiring towards a modern vibe. Their freestanding ability allows them to appear as if they are almost floating in the air, a feature that is unique to acrylic contemporary seating.
