A truly exceptional Regency style dining chair set. There is no mistaking the classic and sophisticated design of these Regency style dining room chairs and armchairs with marquetry decorations. There are 2 armchairs specifically made for the head of table and 6 chairs to place either side of a grand dining table. These chairs would also be appropriate for a conference room. However you choose to use them, they will make a profound impact on your dinner guests or clients and will receive the maximum amount of attention wherever they are placed. The chairs are typical of Regency style furniture. This style was prevalent in England during the regency (1811-1820) of George, Prince of Wales. He later become known as George IV. The chairs have elegantly carved frames. The two head-of-the-table chairs have slightly bulkier frames with the addition of wooden swirl design armrests. They all have drop in seats which are covered in a royal burgundy and gold upholstery. Underneath these upholstered cushions are weaved cane seats. This variation allows for cooler and more comfortable dining in the warmer summer months. These chairs have been made from solid walnut and the burr walnut backs have been inlaid with decorations such as antique vases, feathers, and floral arrangements. They have been lovingly French polished and are ready to grace your dining or conference room. Measurements The 2 armchairs are approximately 56cm wide, 53cm deep and 105cm high. The 6 chairs are approximately 48cm wide, 46cm deep and 105cm high. Please see our other listings for the dining/conference room table that matches these chairs. This table can been seen in the photographs below and is not included in the price of the chairs.
