Antique Hall Chairs were first introduced in the Mid 18th Century Georgian period, usually made in pairs and in Mahogany or Oak woods. These dainty antique chairs were often built by skilled cabinet makers in fine timbers and ornately carved with scrolls, shell motifs or even inlays. They were designed by the English furniture maker Thomas Chippendale and then copied by other cabinet makers throughout the 18th and 19th century. Hall chairs were made using robust solid wood (not veneered on soft woods like other antique chairs) and have straight backs, designed to sit against the wall. Antique hall chairs were situated in the entrance or hall and used for guests to wait until they were invited into dining rooms. They were also used for servants to wait during servings. As they were situated in such prominent positions in the homes entrance, they were made to impress, often with the family’s coat of arms carved or painted into their backs. Due to their small size, they are not only very decorative but also practical pieces of antique furniture that will fit anywhere in your home as an occasional side chair.
