Classic Chair Styles

You can never go wrong when you stick to the classics!  Classics never go out of style (though they do certainly trend).  Here are a few of my favorite chair styles:

These bentwood chairs have been freshened with sweet pastel paint...


... or you might opt for the classic finish of an original Thonet, Chair No: 14.


 The Louis XV Bergere is shown here in a very formal fabric....

... and here, reinterpreted in more casual garb....

Velvet covered Louis style XVI side chairs are always in style...

A more casual version of the Louis XVI side chair is also lovely.

... and here, an updated version....

A Twentieth Century classic was the Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair.

Perhaps you prefer it upholstered in a bright Patchwork?

So, do you have a favorite classic chair?  Do you prefer the more traditional interpretations of the styles, or the or do you like the updated classics?  Or do you love (hate?) them all?


  1. As I am getting older I like the straight back chairs. Pretty chairs you have.

  2. I love all sorts of chairs. I have a thing for them. The first ones look so lovely, all different and painted in various pastel colours! I have to say though that a Louis XVI chair is a classic that can be interpreted for many different spaces.

  3. what a great idea Now I will be able to recycle my own home painting
