Buying Guide

A Gothic chair has carved, pointed arches and a paneled construction. Its style was revived during Victorian and Regency times. As you may know, Gothic chairs are popular for their incredibly ornate and elegant detailing. If you want your home to be well-decorated with intricate patterns and opulent details, then you'll love these types of chairs.

What upholstery goes well with gothic chairs?

Your choices in terms of upholstery material are dramatic, elegant, and bold. The types of fabric great with Gothic chairs are velvet, satin, and silk as they give a hint of decadence and glamour. The fabric may come with a bold color, texture or pattern. To create a unified look, opt for velvet upholstery if your curtains consist of satin and vice versa.

How do I choose the right size gothic chair?

We all have made this terrible mistake once: we go to online stores and fall deeply in love with a particular piece of furniture. As it arrives at our doorstep, it is in the wrong size! If you're like us then you've also thought about tearing down a wall just so the furniture fits through the door! To avoid taking drastic measures that can cost you thousands of dollars, write the dimensions that you are looking for, specifically depth, length, and height.

What are the best colors for gothic chairs?

Even if your chair fits through the door and into the space allotted for it, that does not necessarily mean that it will fit artistically or visually. Visualize your favorite Gothic chair and consider the color of the rugs, wallpaper, and other furniture pieces in your room. If you think they all look lovely together, then you've found yourself a gem!

While black is the color that's predominantly used in Victorian Gothic-themed living spaces, you must use it in moderation unless your goal is to have a home that looks like a haunted mansion.

Consider elegant colors that are rich, bold, and dramatic. If your walls are in dark ocean blue or ruby red, choose Gothic chairs that are in deep burgundy or emerald green. Earth elements like terra-cotta, brick, and wood are also color components present in Gothic homes, so try to pick Gothic chairs with either deep natural colors or rich jewel colors.

What kind of wood are gothic chairs made of?

Do you know what type of wood appeals most to you? Your most common options in terms of frame material are walnut, pine, teak, mahogany, oak, and cherry. All of them are solid wood and capable of withstanding daily use. Your other options are wood veneer or engineered wood products, which are cheaper. As they're cheaper, they don't give off an authentic Gothic vibe.

How are gothic chairs typically finished?

You should also check how the frame of a Gothic chair is finished. It may be stained, oiled, lacquered, fumed or painted.
