chippendale chairs

Thomas Chippendale (1718-1779) was a cabinet maker & furniture designer from London who specialized in the mid-Georgian, English Rococo & Neoclassical styles.  His designs & chairs are regarded as establishing the fashion for furniture for that period and are still used today.

I have a secret confession, ok not so secret.  I have an obsession with his Chippendale Chairs.  I loved the bamboo structure, crossed design in the back and the simple cane seats. I am constantly on the hunt for a set for my dining table.  I scour, eBay, craigslist, garage sales and flea markets.  Because of the classic design, the chairs can go in any style decor.  You can make them a more neutral white or black with a simple fabric or paint them with a bright high gloss color and add a cushion with a wild fabric.
