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.
Dining room chairs: Dining room chairs come in a group of 4, 6, 8, 12 or 20. Since there are so many of them, dining room chairs can easily make a design statement in any room. The shape, style and design of dining room chairs can shape your guest's impression of the room and can make them perceive the room as opulent, luxurious or cramped.
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.
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.
