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.
The squat style chairs with heavy backs that were carved like a piece of paneling gave way to taller, more slender and elegant chairs. The framework of these chairs were less carved and new directions were taken as far as how these chairs were ornamented. Cabinet makers of the Restoration began to take advantage of the opportunities given to them to design these new chairs. Chairs began to take on an elaborate construction with graceful semicircular ornaments that connected all four legs by a vase shaped knob in the center. The arms and legs of the chairs of this period were scrolled with the splats of the back containing a rich arrangement of spirals and scrolls.
