Chinese Chippendale Chairs

Chinese chippendale chairs will never go out of style.  The ornate design is something that has captured the attention of people throughout all generations.  It has been called the perfect accent accessory chair for any room.  This  popular chair of the 70’s is making its way back into the home once again, but it begs the question if it ever left.   These chairs were designed in a time where the oriental styles as well as the french rococo designs were the design of the day.  In 1754 cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale came forth with the orginal chippendale lattice mahogany chair.  He was by far one of the most talented designers of his day. Chippendale’s designs fall into three main styles: Gothic, Rococo, and Chinese.  Thomas Chippendale blended all these style elements into one unified design and produced this chair.   The term “chippendale” refers to English furniture of the 1750s with a particular Rococo edge.  Today chippendale chairs have gained popularity once again, often seen in bright painted colors for whimsical and modern looks.
