Tuesday Tips

We also want to use it share our home decor knowledge and experiences. One way to this is to dive into certain areas and subjects to give you a little more in depth information about them. In this mini series we’re looking into chairs. Not just any old chairs, specifically chairs you would commonly see in coastal home decor.

In this post we’re taking a look at ladder back chairs. The ladder back chair is one of the oldest style of chairs to exist. These chairs date back to the 17th century. They were sought after for their sturdy build and durability. It wasn’t as easy back then as it is for us now! It’s a classic shape and a recognizable chair in home decor. It has a high back with horizontal spindles that provide back support and has four legs. The horizontal spindles resemble a ladder like look which the name “ladder back chair” derives from.

These chairs were also popular in American colonial homes. This popularity is why you will still see these chairs in New England Style or Nautical style homes. The classic influence and style of these chairs works well in each of the coastal styles. It’s also not uncommon to see ladder back chairs that are painted in bright or pastel colors. The updated look on the classic chair works well in a beach cottage style home or rustic, coastal homes.

Take a look at these photos we’ve dropped into this post and get a feel for the chair. You can see how the ladder back chair can be used in a couple different coastal design styles. Nautical style dining space with ladder back chairs Rustic cottage dining space with ladder back chairs
