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.
In the past, a chair was just that - a place where you would rest your aching back. Designs were straightforward and simple and you would be foolish to expect anything more from chairs. These days, however, chairs have become art in themselves. Some pieces are so cleverly made that they look like objects of art but double up as comfortable chairs too.
The most common type of chairs are sofas. Almost every home has at least a set, and they are mainly found in the living room in front of a television set. There are also smaller version that can be found in bedrooms. Some variants of these are loveseats, sectionals, recliner sofas or lounge sofas, but they all look pretty similar.
Outdoor Chairs, or sometimes called beach chairs are great! It is my personal opinion that there is nothing finer than sitting on the back porch or deck on a warm summer night talking with friends. And, the right chair makes all the difference. One that we like is the traditional Adirondack style chair. It is designed for pure outdoor, laid back comfort. These chairs are almost made exclusively of either teak or eucalyptus wood and can be painted or treated with wood oil. Our favorite is the non-painted version as the older the wood gets the better it looks.
