For a mountain top ceremony, think about using more rough-hewn looking chairs from a natural wood. They will complement the rugged beauty of your setting perfectly. If the bride and groom will be seated during the ceremony, you can even consider getting a pair of chairs that are made from actual tree branches. You can find some stunning artisan-made pieces that you will love adding to your home after the wedding.
And what about the dining room chairs? Just take a look at any commonly depicted dining room scene. It's always the man sitting at the head of the table, wife across the way and the children all sitting at the sides of the table. The chairs are usually very plain and simple. No fancy chairs for a typical family of four.
Chairs were developed rich carvings and polychromatic surface treatments for the important members of society, but by the mid 1650's chairs became common and were often upholstered. By the mid 1750's most carpenters and chair designers had got the message that the chair should not only look good, but should be actually be nice to sit on too, hence chairs that hugged the contours of the human body were produced. These chairs had bow shaped backs and curved legs, the arm rests were padded (and in many cases richly embroidered too). It was incidentally, during this period that the 'chaise lounge', the precursor of the sofa was developed, this being a chair on which a lady could recline.
The Queen Anne chair was popularized during the Golden Age of the 18th century, where interior design was a hybrid of Dutch styling and local taste. The chair was revered for being ridiculously pricey, and for this reason, only the upper class experienced how comfortable it is to lounge on them in their houses. These chairs can be made of different sturdy materials, such as walnut veneer, walnut, maple or mahogany. Distinguishable by their cabriole leg, Queen Anna chairs have intricate legs that resemble a paw feet, which is said to have been inspired by four-footed animals. The cabriole leg can be engraved to have ornate designs, while others are more minimalist sporting a smooth, graceful, leg.
