What has 4 Legs, a Back and Looks Fabulous in Gold?

We are sure this is an easy-to-answer riddle for caterers, event planners or soon-to-be brides.

The iconic Chiavari chair is widely recognized by event planners and brides alike as a staple for upscale events.

Hermitage Hill recently added 200+ Chiavari chairs to our inventory. We feel this will add value to many of the brides hosting their weddings at Hermitage Hill. These chairs lend a special flair that so many brides are looking for during their wedding planning process.

But we bet you don’t know some of the interesting history behind these gorgeous chairs. The Chiavari chair or Tiffany chair was designed  in 1807 by an Italian cabinet-maker, Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi of Chiavari, Italy. Giuseppe reworked chairs of the French Empire Style and simplified them to create a lighter version. These chairs gained success and put the town of Chiavari on the map. The lightness of the chair is achieved by structural sections, each component is designed according to the stress it will carry. The Chiavari chair is used at  the White House in the State Dining Room and the Family Dining room. This is a pretty impressive background for a chair!

We hope you have enjoyed this brief history lesson on the Chiavari chair and we look forward to helping you plan your wedding!
