Buying Guide

Vintage high back chairs don’t just offer extra seating, but they’re also a great way for you to add a brand new style reference, color or silhouette to any room. Read on as we’ve compiled tips on how to spot the best one for your home.

If you are wondering which chair can fit your home, you first need to consider the room’s size. It is always a good idea if you make a floor plan like what interior designers do when figuring out several different ways of ensuring a furniture’s fit.

A good floor plan will also ensure that you utilize the available space in your room efficiently and avoid clutter. What’s more, you’ll be able to set enough room for a walkway around your vintage high back chair.

Remember as you’re getting the measurements of your space to take note of furniture-to-wall-clearance, so you don’t get the vintage piece that doesn’t feel right or fit into your space. If you have a room that’s rather small in size, a huge vintage high back chair can look overbearing. In a large living space, a tiny chair will also look off.

Look for a type of fabric that is resistant to staining apart from being high quality. A good quality fabric will be able to give you more comfort and last a lot longer compared to an inexpensive material. If you have toddlers or pets, then it is definitely a great idea to get a vintage high back chair that has a stain-resistant fabric as spills are more likely to happen.

When you’re checking out the upholstery material of a vintage high back chair, don’t forget to assess whether its color can coordinate with your room’s style or not. Every piece in a room must look great together. The furniture pieces don’t have to match, but they should at least complement each other. If you choose the right color for your vintage high back chair, you will enjoy a more conducive atmosphere for dinner parties and get-togethers. It is, therefore, a good thing to adhere to one theme.

If you’re having a hard time choosing a color for your chair as it’s crucial from the fact that it affects a room’s mood, just opt for neutral wood colors. You can add a pop of color through cushions or throws. If you get tired of the color, you can simply change the throw pillows instead of getting a chair in another color.

When you are selecting a vintage high back chair, it is imperative that you select the item that has a quality construction. As much as possible, only choose the one that is made of solid wood. Although that would be your best bet when it comes to durability, your wallet may not like it. However, you have to remember that the piece has already lasted generations and it will continue to do so. This means you’re making an investment on the right piece of furniture.

If your budget really won’t be able to accommodate a quality craftsmanship, your other best options are imitation wood pieces.
