The seats used a solid piece of cedar approximately 1/2 an inch thick, and this style carried on almost until the end of the 1860‘s and, in some areas, until the turn of the century. Usually there was no ornamentation other than the turned front legs, and we began to see sprung fixed seats with stuff over upholstery.

The chair should easily open and close so you won‘t have trouble putting them up and storing them. Try sitting on the chair. Is the chair comfortable or not? The width of the seat and the height for the backrest should sufficiently offer ample seating comfort. Wooden chairs with cushioned seats are also great most especially if you‘re going to use the chairs for a lengthy game of cards. Determine the purpose for buying the chairs. Will they be placed on the balcony or are you going to use them for parties? You may need a sturdier and heavier chair if you‘re going to use it regularly on the patio. A lightweight version, however, would be fitting if you‘re planning to use the chairs only for special occasions.

Australian chairs followed the designs of their European counterparts very closely, the major distinguishing factor being that our local cedar timber was not as hard or as tight grained as the mahogany used in England, and was prone to breaking through the short grain of the back legs or in the shallow turnings and tenons. Bearing these problems in mind, cedar chairs will often have larger proportions to allow for the lesser structural properties, and most examples show considerable wear to the legs, especially the front pair. Fine quality examples of Australian cedar chairs are made of select cuts of cedar utilising the closest and straightest grained timbers for strength and also for their similarity to mahogany. There was quite a prestige associated with being able to afford goods from abroad, primarily England.

Perhaps they will have 50-100 different fabrics that you can choose from within their "standard collection". They will also have some collections that will essentially be upgrades to their standard collection. These will carry with them additional costs though normally those costs will not be excessive as the manufacturer is involved often in the production of these collections and additional costs are kept lower than one might expect.
Anja Mueller Chair, 2018-01-07 00:14:48. The 1890s led to another major change in both style and design. The quality of timber available for furniture manufacture was by no means good compared to the timber used half a century earlier, but we were smarter now and knew how to make things stronger, quicker and even less expensive than before. However, this was done at the expense of hand carving, crisp, tight turnings and to the cherished designs of the past. Unfortunately this is progress; otherwise we would still be in the dark ages with clubs and caves. The style of the period was square, with turnings, machine-carved decoration, and pressings, and designed for mass-production, losing much of the character and finesse for which the earlier cedar chairs were renowned.

The material you choose for your group seating chairs will depend on what the intended use is for the chairs as well as your budget. Two of the most common materials that are used for metal chairs are steel and aluminium and there are both advantages and disadvantages of both types.
Anja Mueller Chair, 2018-01-07 00:15:02. The 1870s and 80s saw predominantly balloon-back chairs with a variation or the bar-back -the ladder-back chair. The ladder-back chair, although not all that pretty to look at in comparison with the others previously discussed, is probably the sturdiest of all cedar dining chairs, excluding provincial manufactured chairs utilising peg construction methods and leg stretchers. The ladder-back chair has two horizontal back rails that are tenoned into the rear legs, giving both strength and comfort at small sacrifice to style. Even though there were many of this style of chair manufactured, we have repaired surprisingly few with any major damage. We have seen many examples of these, both hard-seated and upholstered versions, usually with turned front legs. Another point worthy of mention is that the back legs are straighter, relying on nature to its fullest with less short grain, giving greater mechanical strength following a straighter line and therefore resulting in a stronger chair.
