For our next post in our Take A Seat series, we are focusing on Country Chair Styles.
Country is a wide-ranging term used to describe an interior design scheme that evokes a feeling of simple rustic living. Typical design elements include soft, muted colors, simple furnishings with natural or painted finishes, handmade accessories such as wooden bowls, pottery, and woven baskets, and fabrics in variations of check, striped, or floral patterns. All of these elements are combined in an eclectic way to achieve a charming, cozy environment. A more contemporary country style can be achieved with the use of brighter colors.
Since the country interior features a mix of unmatched furnishings, there are many types of chairs that coordinate well with this style. Particularly well-suited are chairs with simple lines that are made from rustic wood types, such as oak or rustic cherry. Or, chairs featuring special finishing techniques, including distressing, rub through, or painted surfaces. Two of our favorite Amish Tables country chair styles include the Albany Dining Chair and the Bent Paddle Dining Chair. Pair these chairs with tables such as the Traditional Single Pedestal or Traditional Leg Table to bring simple, country living into your home.
