Although much English furniture comes from French and Italian influence, the early forms of English chairs owe very little to influences outside of England itself. This is especially true towards the end of the Tudor period. It was during this time that the French began to take their chair designs from the English.
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.
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.
If you have a dining room in your home, then you will need to purchase a good set of dining room chairs. There are so many different types of dining room chairs that the choice can be overwhelming! Firstly, focus on the type of table you have. What colour is it, what type of material is it made of? A good, solid wooden table will go well with suede-seat wooden chairs. Depending on your taste, you can purchase velvet French vintage dining room chairs, chrome ones and even plastic bucket-seat type chairs.
