When it comes to furniture, there are quite a few different designs and forms out there—there’s more than enough to make your head spin. This is also very true for chairs—take a seat and look at several of the designs that you will run across when you are out at your favorite place to shop:
Fauteuil—this is an upholstered armchair that has open sides, and this type of chair has also been referred to as an elbow chair.
Adirondack chair—this is a very distinctively styled chair for the outdoors, and it is usually made out of wood. Originally, the chair was made with a flat seat and a flat back composed of 11 flat wooden boards (it also featured wide armrests that are parallel to the ground).
Ladderback chair—this chair gets its name from the horizontal slats that serve as the back support. The design of the chair is reminiscent of a ladder. Some of the other names of this chair are ladder-back chair, slatback chair or even fiddle back chair.
This is just a few of the designs that you will see. What have you run across?
