Renaissance Arm Chair With Square Seat

Renaissance Arm Chair With Square Seat

Design Toscano

This armchair is upholstered with a coat of arms jacquard tapestry on the back and seat. Twists and turns and egg-and-dart moldings are carved into this chair for an ornamental allure. The chair leg connectors and solid mahogany wood build make this armchair more stable than most.

$816.8 $796.86

Designer Advice:

The jacquard tapestry on the armchair blends well in rooms with hanging tapestries or long table runners. The height and back style makes it look like it's fit for a king. Tall people don't have problems with this chair, though the high footrest may be an issue for some.

Corner style Renaissance Armchair

Corner style Renaissance Armchair

Design Toscano

This renaissance armchair sits neatly in corners by itself, making for a lovely room accent. It features four cabriole legs with carved ball and claw feet, a honey floral seat, and an open and decorative back. The x-shape spindles between the legs on the bottom help support the legs and prevent them from loosening.

$627 $682.86

Designer Advice:

Because of this chair's dark and warm tones, it's best not to place it in rooms with too many cool hues. If you are looking for a set of dining room chairs, this isn't the best option as it's designed to fit in corners. A round table may be able to get away with this style of armchair.

Renaissance Armchair With Folding Capabilities

Renaissance Armchair With Folding Capabilities

Design Toscano

This renaissance chair can be folded and put away by simply popping off the backrest and folding the wood sides like a pair of scissors. It has more gracious curves with a minimal appeal that blends better with other furniture. It features square arms and can hold a max weight of 220 pounds.

$532.95 $796.86

Designer Advice:

Because it doesn't have a seat or back cushion, it can be less comfortable than armchairs with cushions. However, this can be fixed by adding your own seat cushion. This type of chair is great for temporary situations when guests come to visit.

Renaissance Arm Chair With Padded Arms

Renaissance Arm Chair With Padded Arms

Design Toscano

Built like a throne, this renaissance chair comes with a carefully carved wooden frame with lion-head accents. The warm browns, camel hues, and diamond shapes add a grand and rich sensation. The padded armrests are great because they make this chair more comfortable to sit on at the dining table.

$1083.87 $1184.46

Designer Advice:

This armchair is higher in price, which pushes some people away, though if you can afford it, it is a unique piece to display. The lion heads carved into the chair pair well with statues or table centerpieces that have lions on them.

Renaissance Armchair With Cushion Back

Renaissance Armchair With Cushion Back

Design Toscano

Dark column legs support this renaissance chair and give it an angelic feel with the angel and wings sculpted in the front. The cream and gold seat is shaped like a shield, upholstered with a polyester blend, and stuffed with foam for a softer surface.

Designer Advice:

The angel carvings in this armchair make it more fitting for homes and rooms adorned with celestial figurines. Because it has no connector between the legs, it gives an airy style giving the illusion that it takes up less space. On the contrary, the missing connector may cause this armchair to not be as durable.
