These chairs have been painted white and glazed for the antique look they have certainly acquired over the years. Notice the curvy details on the base where the new upholstered seat will sit. Not many straight lines on these chairs!
The base of the chair has the decorative wood bar placed between the legs with some delicate features which just add to the ornateness of its over all design. The honeycomb type cylinders on the leg are charming and match the same design on the table. I don't know about many of you out there but I have not run across this type of detail on a chair before. Typically you will see spindles and some nice wood work but not the layered design down the whole leg.
The backs of the chairs are not your typical vertical or horizontal lines. They almost have a keyhole type design which is unqiue and stunning.The set has four chairs and two captain chairs which provide for a nice visual variety. Next up I will reveal the matching buffet.
On a different note have you started decorating your home for the holidays? I picked up something yesterday that I want to use in conjunction with our fireplace. I presented an idea I have had to Mike to see if he thinks it will work. He just looked and me and crickets were chirping so I quickly said - "just think about it."
I linked to the parties on my sidebar.
