Dining Chairs Then and Now
Granted, dining chairs with open work backs are usually far less comfortable than chairs with upholstered backs, but for graphic interest and a sense of rhythm in a room, the open chairs win no question. The black lacquer chairs above are Chippendale style antiques available through Mecox Gardens. Below those is a reproduction of Frances Elkins' iconic loop chair from the 1930s, now available in a white or black lacquer finish through Downtown. The newest chair, below, is a Woods & Fields interpretation of Hollywood Regency, also in a white lacquer finish. The upholstered seat can be ordered in pearlized gold or your own material. And BTW, Woods & Fields is the furniture line designed by Woodson and Rummerfield.
