Today on Take A Seat blog series, we are looking at Formal Chair Styles.
This style achieves a display of grandeur and luxury, but can be attained even in the smaller home. The formal interior is symmetrically arranged and centers around a focal point, such as a prominent window, impressive fireplace, or large painting. Specific style characteristics include rich woods, high ceilings with ornamental moldings, luxurious fabrics, paintings in carved gilt frames, oriental-style carpets, and crystal or brass light fixtures.
The formal style home typically features a private dining room for elegant entertaining. Furnishings for the formal dining room should have graceful lines, finely carved elements, deep wood tones, and upholstered chairs for luxurious comfort. Woods with fine-graining, such as cherry and hard maple, are the ideal choice for the sophisticated interior. At Amish Tables, our favorite formal chair styles are the Callahan Dining Chair and Benjamin Dining Chair. Select a complementary table, such as the Kingsley Single Pedestal, Richland Leg Table, or the Chancellor Double Pedestal to complete your formal dining room.
