- Victorian Balloon Back Chairs
Victorian furniture styles were heavily inspired by Gothic, Rococo, and Louis XV furniture, inheriting the dark finishes, heavy proportions, and other sophisticated embellishments. Laurel Crown has worked diligently to recreate a classic Victorian balloon back chair with exact authenticity and attention to detail. Our craftsmen carve, sand, and finish each Victorian side chair by hand to ensure that we exceed all your expectations. This refined chair is made of Honduran mahogany, which was preferred by old-world furniture makers for its light weight and color compared to Cuban or Dominican mahoganies. We accentuated the reddish-brown hue with a satin semi-gloss finish.
Our Victorian dining chairs will make a stylish and sophisticated addition to your dining room. Guests will marvel at your exquisite taste in home furnishings. Each Victorian balloon back chair we build comes with a well-sprung seat, which is entirely customizable. We offer a wide range of upholstery options to choose from, as well as a variety of fabric patterns that are strongly reminiscent of the Victorian period. You may also choose to supply your own fabric and we will tailor your chosen upholstery to look as if it always belonged.
Each Victorian side chair features all the details one might expect from a genuine antique:
- Trumpet-turned front legs and sweeping saber rear legs
- Stock upholstery options include fabric, leather, and velvet
- Balloon backrest with intricately carved central back splats
The romantic shape and styling of our Victorian dining chairs will add a touch of elegance to your home. Best of all, we can customize the finish to complement other wood tones found within your home.
