    set 8 adams mahogany shield back dining chair

    You are viewing a gorgeous set of 8 Robert Adams style dining chairs hand crafted from the finest mahogany. The set consists of 6 side chairs and 8 carvers. I hope the photos do this stunning set some justice, they are certainly more impressive in the flesh and would make for a great addition to any home interiors scheme.

     
    The backs are very distinctive with the shield shape and the hand carved designs including the classical urns and swags, a common Adams motif. The chairs are solid and sturdy, no wobbles to the joints and very comfortable to sit in. We have various mahogany dining tables available to match so please email if you are interested in buying a set. We would of course offer a great discount for buying a set. Also check out store. The seats have just been repholstered with a flower print fabric, so these are offered free from any previous owners smells such as smoke and pets. We bought these from a dealer in Sheringham, Norfolk.
     
    Adam was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland, the second son of William Adam (1689–1748), a stonemason and architect who was Scotland's foremost designer of country houses at the time. His younger brother and business partner James Adam was also an architect of some note, as was his older brother John Adam, although both were overshadowed by Robert.
     
    He is considered by many to be the greatest architect of the late 18th century, and a leader of the neo-classical revival in England and Scotland from around 1760 until his death. Sir William Chambers was the leading British official architect of the era, but Adam received many important commissions from private clients and had a more lasting stylistic influence, termed the Adam style.
