You’ve probably seen a particular chair that you thought was incredibly cool, swanky or sexy.
Maybe with a cool print….
Or interesting lines….
And, odds are if it has the description “sexy and swanky”….
It falls somewhere in the “modern” category.
Like all these chairs from One Kings Lane…
But, did you know that, like any style, the modern chair has a lengthy history …. one that dates back to the Victorian era? Victorian? Crazy, huh.
It actually began with the Arts and Crafts style in an effort to rebel against Victorian excess, and shed all the gluttony associated with Victorian style….
And, it’s been evolving ever since.
Yep, there’s an entire history of evolution in the modern chair and it’s really quite interesting.
One King’s Lane has a fascinating and informative Guide to the Modern Chair that tells the history of the modern chair from the Pre-Modern Arts and Crafts to Art Nouveau to Art Deco to the Bauhaus to Mid-Century Modern chair.
The modern chair……cool, swanky, sexy…….gotta love it!
