Exploring the look of vintage or retro dining room chairs

The terms vintage or retro have a wide application, so the first thing to consider when selecting your new but old dining room chairs is the era you’re looking to replicate. 18th century chairs tended to be made from walnut with a paintbrush style foot, also known as a Spanish foot. Baroque carving was also common. Moving ahead to the 19th century, chairs were decorated with scrolls or animal feet, although late in the century smooth lines and simplicity became key. Jumping ahead to the 1920s and 1930s, chairs were more geometric with Art Deco designs. Animal prints became more common. The 1940s heralded in the Eames molded plywood chair with chrome legs and sleek lines. For the 1950s, think more along the lines of vinyl diner or cafe chairs. The 1970s saw the development of more bold designs, geometric shapes, and bright colours.
