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.
Chairs are essential pieces of equipment in any home, office, or public setting. And even though chairs are sometimes viewed as "just a piece of equipment", it doesn't mean that it has to be tasteless and uncomfortable. On the contrary, chairs on the market today are functional, comfortable, and are very affordable.
Instead, use a modern chair in the sitting room as either a conversation piece or extra seating when there is company. These chairs can be purchased one at a time or can be purchased in pairs. They make a great statement when put on either side of a piece of modern art or an art deco table. It is easy to purchase this type of chair to match any art deco pieces that you have.
Another man who attempted to make major changes to the Chippendale design was Robert Adam. Adam lived from 1728 to 1792. He was a Scottish architect who lived in Kirkcaldy. He set up his business in 1758 in England after returning from a grand tour of France and Italy. It was then that he started work on his variations of the Chippendale design which can still be seen throughout the world today. Historians say his success is attributed to the fact that everything he designed he did so down the smallest detail.
