English Chippendale Ribbon Back Mahogany Dining Chair


Perhaps one of the most elegant designs that furniture designer Thomas Chippendale came up with is the ribbon back dining chair. This ribbon back chair is a more formal version of the ladder back that looks great with almost all other styles of furniture whether they are formal or informal. Chippendale is famous for incorporating gentle carvings into his furniture, and the beauty of this chair is a testament to that design.

English Ribbon Back Dining Chair

This particular chair was hand crafted in England and finished with an elaborate seven stage hand rubbed finishing process. The result is the mahogany wood has been transformed into an amazing work of art. As only the English can do, the proportions of this ribbon back dining chair are perfect. They are not too dainty or to thick and clunky. Not only does this ribbon back look amazing, but it sits very comfortably as well.

Chair Features

Besides the carved ribbons on the chair back rest, this dining chair also has gentle fluted carvings on the supports, legs, and stretchers. This subtle carving breaks up the lines of the chair without making it too “busy”. The muslin covered seat easily pops out of cleaning and recovering. It will be a simple task to cover the cushion with a fabric of your choosing.
