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.
The most popular of these chairs were the ones made so by the cavaliers who had been exiled by Charles II. During the reign of William and Mary these chairs degenerated into chairs that were more stiff and rectangular with a solid fiddle shaped splat and a cabriole leg with pad feet. Chairs that were a bit more ornamental had cane seats and caned backs. It is from these forms that the Chippendale chair was developed. This chair had an elaborately interlaced back, graceful arms and square legs. The Chippendale chair to this day is one of the most popular designs in history. It was created by Thomas Chippendale who lived from 1718 to 1779. He was one of the big three furniture makers of the 18th century along with Thomas Sheraton and George Hepplewhite. In 1754 he published a book of his designs which included the Chippendale chair design.
There are two basic designs, one that incorporates a back support and one that is designed to neatly fit under a desk. These chairs are great for those of us that spend long hours in front of a computer or work in a setting where you are going from room to room and need to take the pressure off your feet (like a doctors office). If you don't have one but are interested, we suggest that you find a retailer that sells them and try one out. When you decide that you'd like to purchase one, it is a good idea to check prices on-line as they are often 10% to 30% less expensive and often with free delivery.
Many people are under the impression that dining chairs need to be used at a dining room table. This is just not right. Some of the modern chairs that can be found today can be used in just about any room. A good room for these chairs is the sitting room.
