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 have been around for centuries, and only keep getting better. With the incorporation of new materials, technology, and ergonomic design, chairs are not only looking better, they feel much better.
Many of today's contemporary chairs still offer the same basic functionalities that the old and traditional types of chairs are known to provide. The difference is that contemporary chairs do not only offer great functionalities, but they also serve as decorative pieces of furniture. Most of the chairs available in the market nowadays, whether a hardwood chair or a padded one, are built with exceptional designs and have trendy colors and styles. Some even have unusual and unique forms and shapes, but still offer the same, if not more, comfort and convenience to users.
An armchair is simply a single-seater couch, generally living up to its name by having a comfortable back and armrests. A good armchair works well with most lounge suites, but can also look good in a study, perfect for settling into with a good book. If you want to take your comfort to the next level, you can purchase a reclining armchair.
