:: Chairs 101: Chippendale Chairs ::


Tuesday Tips

Bright and bold space decorated with chinese chippendale chairsThe Chippendale Chair is one of the most popular chairs in coastal decor. It embodies the coastal style in an effortless way. Its history, however, is not rooted in coastal design though. An 18th century English cabinetmaker, Thomas Chippendale, is responsible for the creation of Chippendale furniture and for the name of the it as well. Thomas Chippendale created many pieces and styles of furniture, chairs were not his only contribution to furniture design. The Chippendale style also includes tables, cabinets, desks and bed frames. There are also sub-styles of the Chippendale style furniture that include Rocco, Gothic and Chinese.

The Chinese style of the Chippendale furniture is the one typically incorporated into modern day coastal decor, especially the Chippendale chairs. These chairs are often seen in coastal homes and are popular due to their design. Today’s chairs often resemble the original styles, but are made out of faux bamboo or plastics. The chair is known for its fret work on the back and legs. The fret work on the back of the chairs look like a bamboo lattice.

These chairs also come in a large variety of styles and colors which makes designing with them easy. You have probably seen the chair while searching through coastal decor pins on Pinterest and now you can put the proper name to them. We’ve also added a few examples of what Chippendale Chairs look like and how to use them in a coastal style home.

:: How High To Hang Your Dining Room Chandelier ::


Tuesday Tips

Coastal chic diing room with a gorgeous chandelierThe dining room chandelier is a design conundrum that has been around for as long as we can remember. There are many aspects that go into making this design choice. The official standing, and what you’ll most likely read in the textbooks, is to hang the chandelier 30-34 inches above the dining room table if you have an 8 foot ceiling. If you have a higher ceiling you add 3 inches for every foot above 8 feet. For example, if you have 10 foot ceiling you would hang the chandelier 36-50 inches above the table. That’s just the start.

On top of the hanging height, you need to take into consideration the width. The general rule is to make sure your chandelier is 12 inches narrower than the with of your table. So purchase a wide table because we don’t want anyone hitting their heads on it now, do we? That’s not too bad, but wait! It’s then suggested that the chandelier be 48 inches from each wall in the dining room and should be centered on the table. We can manage that right? Right!

Now that we have the technically side down, it’s time to actually pick your chandelier which means more choices and options as well as design aspects to factor in. Starting to see where this is going? Exactly, no thanks! Sometimes you have to toss the rules out the window and go for it. A chandelier doesn’t need to be that complicated. Find what you like, make sure it fits in the room (literally and aesthetically) and then eye it. Size it up with your eyes and pick the height that you like the most as well as looks right to you. This is your space, you don’t need other people telling you how to design it.
