The Vintage Appeal of Crossback Dining Chairs

Though there’s no shortage on ways you can decorate your dining room, I have noticed recently that the choice of furniture is becoming more and more rigid. Today, we are bombarded with all sorts of intricate furniture pieces meant to attract us with their bold looks. However, the dining room of all rooms benefits more from being restrained and traditional, than being modern and brash. After all, it’s the room where you share delightful meals with your family and as such should feel as warm as possible.

It’s always refreshing to come back to those soulful designs of past, which offer quality and comfort. One such beloved staple of bygone eras, is the crossback dining chair. It’s one of the few vintage dining chairs that have remained popular even today. Perhaps its staying power can be attributed to its minimalistic design which blends in perfectly with all kinds of interior settings, ranging from Scandinavian to shabby chic.

The look of the crossback dining chair is instantly recognizable: a rustic wooden frame with a backrest in the form of an X, wide seat made out of rattan to provide utmost seating comfort, and a natural, rich colour which can harmoniously match a vintage style dining room or kitchen. If you’re planning to pair your chairs with a French provincial table, a white glossy finish will create a quite a romantic match. With the help of a chandelier you can add a classy wow factor to the this charming vintage dining table and chairs combo.

If you’re very much interested in adding the vintage flair of crossback chairs to your dining room, you should consider a couple of things. For one, decide between the two main styles of crossback chairs: arm chair or side chair. You might even consider a mixed set of the two for some variety. Then, you should select your desired colour according to the look you aim to capture. Industrial style demands for darker mahogany colours, while cottage styles simply love white and brighter, pastel pallets.

Choosing the perfect crossback dining chairs for your home is not a very difficult process. Their seamless design guarantees that you will never make a design blunder by introducing them to a variety of settings. For some reason, cross back dining chairs have lately become popular as the choice of seating for different outdoor events ranging to garden parties and even weddings. And who wouldn’t want the most romantic design of chair as part of their wedding? I know I definitely would!
