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.
Sheraton and Hepplewhite tried to lighten the design of the original Chippendale chair, which even in the hands of the one who created it was a very heavy piece of work. Sheraton and Hepplewhite were successful in their attempts to modify the design and lighten the chair and to this day the modern Chippendale is comparatively slight next to just about every other chair of its type.
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.
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.
