chairs




The chairs that accompany a table in a dinette set are important pieces of furniture; perhaps what is most important about them is that you do not necessarily have to choose the chairs that are featured with a dinette set’s table. For this reason, a variety of individual chair styles exist to not only compliment the dining room table, but to also compliment design of the dining room. Chairs come in many shapes, colors and sizes. They also come in many styles as well; parsons chairs are one of these styles.

Parsons chairs are a great way to incorporate rich colors, textures and fabric designs into your dining room area. This is a particularly important characteristic of parsons chairs, especially for novice room designers who want desperately to incorporate the use of textures and patters into their décor but do not know where or how to begin. The variety of designs and exquisite colors that can be incorporated in this piece of dining room furniture make it the perfect companion to the rooms’ unique and captivating design, or design potential.

Parsons chairs have sat around the dining room table for a long period of time. And though the construction and material of parsons chairs have been consistent over time, the chair styles themselves have transitioned through the generations. This is why you can find parsons chairs to reflect almost any artistic time period. The Art Nouveau designs are known for fluidity and scroll-style backs. The Art Deco designs are the most common ones found, and parsons chairs in this style are more ornate and detailed with materials in colors more bold and exotic. The Mission style chairs are known for their incorporated richness and emphasis on lines in design.

When purchasing a parsons chair, the three most important elements are the back, legs and arm rests. Though parsons chairs can come without arm rests, those that do have the option of upholstered arm rests or basic wooden arm rests. The legs of parsons chairs can also be upholstered, or they can be tapered, turned, or fluted. The seatbacks of parsons chairs can be straight, scrolled or camel backed. Again, the artistic time period definitely plays a part in how the chair is designed. However, no matter how your dining room is designed, the bottom line is that there are plenty of decorating options to choose from. No matter your taste, you are destined to find a parsons chair that adds a simple touch of elegance and sophistication to your dining room décor.

Dining Room Furniture FAQ:

Question: What stores offer layaway? More specifically furniture?
I’m about to move into an apartment but have no living room furniture or dining room furniture what so ever. Does anyone know of anywhere that offers layaway for furniture? Other than Kmart? I don’t really want to put all that on credit cards.

Answer: Actually no one any more but this year some department stores have brought lay-a-way back. You can sign up with furniture stores by taking on their own credit cards and put off payment for 6 months to a year if they are running that kind of program, but they don’t offer layaway programs. Layaway is a thing of the past but was ever only offered in department stores when it was.

Question: What color should I paint my dining room?
The rest of the house has been painted this very light pale yellow. When you walk in the front door there is a double door width opening to our living room on the right. Just beyond it is a double door width opening to our dining room. So you can see it from the living room. Our dining room has a white chair rail & the bottom half of it is that pale yellow color throughout the rest of the house. I’d like to eventually get walnut/white furniture for the dining area.

Answer: Red is a warm color, so it will speed up your blood pressure just a little. Orange makes you want to eat, so you might try an orange-red shade, then paint the chair rail and the bottom half off-white. Those colors should work very well with a walnut table.

Question: How can I stop or reduce the echo effect in my dining room ? Even while talking in that room, we notice the echo. I already have some furniture in that room.

Answer: Adding a rug, curtains, or upholstered furniture would be the most obvious answer. Really, any “soft” things you could add to the room will absorb some of the sound and cut down on the echo.

Question: What color curtains would go in my dining room?
I cannot seem to decide on what color/pattern of curtains would go in my dining room. The color was supposed to be a blue, but it ended up more like a lilac with more blue than red. My dining room furniture isn’t too formal and is a dark brown. Any suggestions on colors/patterns?

Answer: I would go with something neutral since you have color on the walls already and dark furniture. Tan maybe?

Question: I have a combined living and dining room area. Does anyone know how to separate the areas? I am interested in separating these areas with a wall, partition, etc. Does anyone have any suggestions? I don’t want to use furniture to separate the area. I want the dining room area to be more private.

Answer: Putting up a wall is relatively inexpensive. Some 2 x 4’s and sheetrock. If you do it yourself it will be cheaper. Check out diynet.com, on framing a wall. It will tell you everything you need for supplies and how to do it.

Question: We want to make our formal dining room into a little sitting area to smoke cigars and drink wine. Can anybody give me some links for some creative ideas?

Answer: HGTV did a conversion of a second living room to a british pub style room a while back. They always have good ideas on their website, check there.

Question: What would be the best color for an elegant dining room?
I dont have any furniture, we’re just starting out but we are trying to decide what color to paint the dining room. We will pick a dining set accordingly AFTER we paint but what do you think the best color would be. I have a beige-ish textured tile in the dining room with hints of grey and darker beige.

Answer: Don’t pick the wall color before you pick the furniture. The furniture can cost from $500 (if you’re lucky and a suite comes in while you’re at Goodwill) to $5000. The paint costs the same no matter what color it is – under $100 will cover the room if you do it yourself.
It would be too silly to limit your furniture choices by color when that’s the easiest thing in the world to change. All paint costs the same.

Question: How can I raise the height of my dining room table?
I have bought a brand new dining room table and chairs, but the two end chairs with the armrests are about an inch and a half too high to slide underneath the table. I have seen a lot of different types of furniture lifts and caster, but they are either too big or poor quality. I need something that is about 1 1/2″ in diameter and 1 1/2″ high. It needs to be something that the table legs cannot slip off. Does anyone have any ideas?

Answer: A couple ideas. Add a piece of wood the same size and shape as the bottom of the leg to the bottom of the leg screwing it in place with a counter sunk screw. If the table legs screw off add a piece of wood here, screwed to the table top then attach the legs onto it.
Find identical flat paper weights and slide them under the legs or something else flat solid and identical in shape and color. Have a marble or granite counter top company cut you some identical pieces from scrap to do the job.

You peer out of your window, and the smile on your face is brightening your yard more than the gleaming sun. Turn to the left, and you spy your brand new outdoor rocking chair, accentuated with a matching ottoman. Turn to the right, and the sight of your new patio set almost puts a tear in your eye. Glare out to the garden, and your garden bench brings you more elation than the garden brings the butterflies. Your ears non-reluctantly find their way further toward the back of your head, making opportunity for your never-ending smile to make their domain its own. Today is the day you go to your neighborhood outdoor furniture store to put the finishing touches on your work of art. Today is the day you purchase the garments for your outdoor furniture. Today is the day you buy your Adirondack chair cushions.

It happens, occasionally, that after you buy cushions for your outdoor furniture one year, you may find, the following year, that you have out-grown that particular style. Do not be discouraged by this slightly, seemingly unfortunate, yet common change of preference. Adirondack chair cushions are available in as many different patterns, colors and styles that you might find driving from the city and into the country to take a nature walk. You can rest assured that you will find the one particular pattern that you yearn for by the start of the season, when that modification of material partiality takes place.

You have spent many hours dripping with sweat, almost to the point of dehydration, sometimes passing the point of exhaustion, while you made your outdoor mental and physical hospice just the way you have always imagined it, since the youthful, inventive times of adolescence. Planting new grass, adding new flowers, aligning the shrubbery, putting the mulch in the precise location, and all for what? So you can sit and admire your hard slog and dedication from inside the house? Of course not! You want to take pleasure in all your arduous work and perseverance up close-up and personal. By adding new cushions to your lawn furniture, you can do just that, by first adding the comfort ability needed to spend more than just a few moments from time to time, while you ingeniously put a whole new guise into your garden and yard.

When the time comes that you actually question whether or not your lawn furniture is looking the best that it can, or might feel your personal chic could be lacking, or maybe you are not exactly sure what it is that you are looking to add to your Adirondack chair, you can achieve satisfaction by simply adding Adirondack cushions. This is a cheap and effective way to add new vivacity to your porch or patio. By adding more comfort to these already comfortable chairs, Adirondack can assist you in enjoying the outsides with the ultimate in comfort.

Adirondack Chair FAQ:

Question: The Best Plans For Building An Adirondack Chair?
I would like them to be “as complete” as possible. I have searched online in a few places but no luck.

Answer: Try Wood Magazine. Their plans are highly detailed and complete.

Question: Adirondack chair finishing?
I just bought a new Adirondack chair that seems to be in raw Oak, non-finished. The furniture store I bought it from said I could either stain it or paint it. How do I stain this chair? Is it as simple as going to Lowe’s or HD and buying some sand paper, stain. paint brushes..and getting this done? Am I missing something?

Answer: Instead of paint brushes take an old tee shirt and apply the stain with that. Leave stain on for a minute or so and lightly rub the excess stain off with a clean rag. Let dry. If the finish is to light give it another coat.

Question: Looking for plans for adirondack double seater chair?

Answer: There might be some woodworking shows on the diy channel (or possibly even the hgtv channel).

Question: What kind of lumber?
I want to make an adirondack chair or two, but I don’t want it to be too expensive. What kind of wood should I use, that would be nice, but not too pricey?

Answer: Cedar is not too expensive and will hold up well in outdoor conditions.

Question: Regular or spray can polyurethane for outdoor cedar?
My husband made four beautiful adirondack chairs out of cedar. We want to preserve the cedar (so it doesn’t turn gray due to weather). I am thinking of getting spray cans of polyurethane due to the many slats in the chair seats which would make putting it on with a cloth or brush more difficult. I’ve never used the spray poly before.

Answer: Works great. Same as using a paint spray. Can spray light coats wait for it to dry in between coats, 2 coats better than 1, 3 coats better than 2 etc. Use in low humidity.

This rustic chair must be one of the most ideal relaxation chairs on the market today; the only problem is that once you settle in you don’t really want to get up. The chair design was before its time in ergonomic and aesthetic design, with contoured back and strut supports, oversized arm rest and smooth overall finish. Adirondack chairs have also been quoted as the Muskoka chair in Canada. The chair’s design has been accredited to Thomas Lee, who tested his designs on his family, as far back as 1903 – it was made from a 11 pieces of wood all cut from a single board. Like everything else the chair was shrouded with controversy when Lee gave the opportunity of manufacturing the chairs to his friend, Harry Bunnell, who patented the plans behind Lee’s back and proceeded to make the ‘Westport’ Plank chair for the next twenty years. Adirondack chairs have become so famous that there is even a term of Adirondacking – which is an Adirondack chair picnic.

Although it was generally accepted that white cedar was used in construction of this chair, nowadays one can find the chair made from engineered wood, plastic lumber, teak and a variety of other materials. The original design of this chair has also progressed to the next level; one can enjoy a cozy evening with a loved one on the double sized loveseat, or rock the little one to sleep with the Adirondack rocking chair. After working the whole day in the garden, there is nothing like getting that beer out of the fridge, and pulling up the matching ottoman to the chair and sitting back surveying all the great work you have done.

The popularity of these chairs has spread all over the world and they can be bought from anywhere, and seen everywhere. Walking down a street one will see the chairs in sidewalk cafes and restaurants; they are especially useful when space is restricted due to their oversized arm rests, which eliminates the need for a table, as these rests can serve as a makeshift table for drinks, plates and the like.

When a bit of imagination is used, one can create a whole new look by creating different covers or cushions for these chairs, if space permits one can create several looks for this furniture type and interchange as the need arises. I was also taken aback by the apparent ease of actually making your own Adirondack chairs, provided you have the necessary tools and skills. A question did arise as to the suitability of which wood to use as well as the staining or painting options. Generally oak, cedar and cypress was recommended and if you are a wood lover, deep penetrating oil would provide that natural deep wood finish.

So for a time tested chair, that’s been around for more than one hundred years – providing the satisfaction of a very comfortable ergonomic seat one can’t seem to go wrong with Adirondack chairs, go ahead and enjoy!

I’m trying to build an adirondack chair but I don’t know how much wood I need to buy.

Answer: Here is a plan with wood list: http://www.ibiblio.org/twa/plans/plans/adirondackchair.pdf

Question: Where can I get the pattern for the Adirondack Chair featured on Auction Squad a few years ago?

Question: How do I paint a pine adirondack chair that is unfinished?
It is for a school auction and we want to paint it white, let it dry, and then paint our kindergartener’s hands and put their handprints onto it. I specifically need to know what type of white paint/primer to use and also what type of paint to do the handprints in, any other decorative touches, etc., and also how to seal it properly. It is a regular sized chair.

Answer: If you use water base paint it would be easier to paint the chair first then put your child’s hand in the paint than put the hand print on the chair.

Question: How can I clean a mildew-stained pine adirondack chair?

Answer: Bleach the chair, wash the chair, sand the chair (the bleach and water will raise the grain of the wood, so you need to sand it to smooth it again). Or spray it with a LIGHT bleach solution then dark stain it or paint it. You shouldn’t need to sand it or just sand it lightly if you do that.

Question: I want to stain a white cedar adirondack chair but not sure how to start?
Whats the staining process? Just apply one coat of stain and then a sealant?

Answer: I’d start by sanding it down… I’m thinking a medium coarse grade paper. Then you’ll need to choose your stain… if you’re going for a “washed look” (i.e white wash) apply with a rag WITH the grain and have another rag to wipe off the excess. Make sure you seal with a protectant.

Have you been turned off of the idea of plastic garden furniture by the tacky, mass-produced products that can be purchased cheaply anywhere, but fade after one season? Maybe you should take a second look.

The truth is: plastic garden furniture, such as plastic Adirondack chairs, can be beautiful, natural looking, stylish and may be the perfect option for many people. Furniture constructed out of recycled plastic polymer, as is the case with many plastic Adirondack chairs, is resistant to moisture, corrosives, chlorine, salt water and insects. It is also sturdy and comfortable, and will remain looking new for several years.

If you are not even sure what an Adirondack chair is let alone a plastic Adirondack chair, here is a little history. Adirondack chairs were invented during the early 1900’s by a vacationer who was looking for ways to furnish his summer home. By utilizing materials found around his Westport, NY, vacation home, Thomas Lee crafted a unique chair that caught the attention of a local carpenter and would eventually gain widespread popularity. The chair was made out of eleven slats of wood, had wide armrests, and was unique in that both the seat and back angled so that it would sit better on the steep mountain terrain of the Adirondacks.

Identified by a high, angled back and sloping seat, Adirondack chairs are made with comfort in mind, and the plastic Adirondack chair version is no different. The angle and tilt of the chair make it perfect for relaxation, and the wide arms of the chair are ideal for holding your favorite summer drink. After sitting in one of these chairs, it is not hard to imagine a lazy afternoon spent in the outdoors while napping or reading your favorite novel.

And you can find a chair to fit your personality, style and needs. Plastic Adirondack chairs and furniture can be purchased from a wide variety of styles and natural-looking colors. They can be found in the classic Adirondack style, deck chairs, gliders, double rockers, and come with style elements such as shell and curved backs.

Plastic Adirondack chairs feature solid, fade-resistant color. You can choose from colors such as white, sand, dark teak, hunter green and black or a sleek caribbean blue. In some cases, you may even find that plastic Adirondack chairs are more affordable than the exact same chair made with wooden materials. While you can expect to spend around $200 for a chair and sometimes more for different styles, these particular plastic Adirondack chairs will last a lifetime, which make them an investment worth considering.

Whether you are looking for an Adirondack chair to place on a rustic seaside deck or a chair for a formal garden, you may find exactly what you are looking for in among the wide selection of plastic Adirondack chairs.

Adirondack Chairs FAQ:

Question: Where can I find inexpensive plastic adirondack chairs for my patio?
I really want something cheap because I’m a college student, but all the listings I find are starting at 75$. That can’t be right because some listings for wooden adirondack chairs I’ve come across have been that price too. I’ve treid all the basics… sears, jc penney, target, walmart… but no luck. Any advice?

Answer: You can occasionally find them at the dollar store for around $20-$25. Try family dollar too. Have you tried lowes, home depot, hardware stores?

Question: I need building plans for Adjoined Adirondack chairs?
Looking for building plans for 2 Adirondack chairs with a table in the middle. I want one where the chairs are at a slight angle.

Answer: Try woodcraftplans.com. Maybe with plans in hand you can figure out some creative cuts or variables that would have the chairs be slightly angled.

Question: How do I remove mildew stains from white plastic adirondack chairs?

Answer: Bleach removes mildew, but be careful you don’t spill any on your clothes. You could put some bleach in a spray bottle, spray, let it work, then rinse, or you could make a solution of half and half water and bleach, and, wearing gloves, wash down the chairs.

Question: got Oak adirondack chairs in April stained with tung oil. They are dirty?? How do I clean b4 re-staining?
Also should I polyurethane them? I live in SC where it is very humid spring thru fall. The dirt is black specks and other blackish marks.

Answer: Tung oil is tough stuff, it protected gun stocks from the elements for years! I would just wash the chairs with hot soapy water and a sponge/cloth and rinse with the hose.

I wouldn’t put poly on them. Just another coat or two of tung oil which is VERY easy to apply and is wonderful for wood. My husband and I refinish furniture and that’s all we use. Poly is a bugger if you get a mark or a ding in it, you have to sand the whole area and do it all over. Tung oil allows you to just stand the problem area a bit and will level right in with the existing tung oil finish. No brush marks or bubbles either. Just apply it with a soft, lint free cloth in light even coats. Don’t be surprised if the first couple of coats soak in if the wood is a bit weathered. Keep adding coats of the oil and you will eventually get a nice smooth finish. Tung oil is one of those finishes that the wood dictates how many coats not you. The way we tell if a piece is “done” is to look across it and if you see a smooth surface without breaks in the finish, it’s done. Might take numerous coats but it’s one of the toughest finishes around for wood!

Question: Where can I find cushions for adirondack chairs?

Answer: Any local upholstery shop can make patterns for your chairs and cover foam with a sunbrella outdoor fabric.

Question: Does anyone know where I can get a pattern for counter height Adirondack chairs?

Answer: You would do best to search for Adirondack Bar Stools.

Question: What do you use to clean wooden adirondack deck chairs?

Answer: Use deck cleaner and pressure wash them.

I think they are the most comfortable chairs!

Answer: Static charge is normally developed due to specific materials, when they are rubbed together specially in dry condition. Chair itself can not develop any static charge. I would suggest that you look for the material around your work area, which is causing this

1- Try to remove the cause, could be the carpet and/or foot mat
2- Use a humidifier

Grounding strip can also be used, which is normally metal strip or mesh connected to your office/home electrical ground

I have checked several pattern books – no luck. I am picturing sort of an “envelope” that slips over the back, with a chair-wide drape to the floor. I am not interested in covering the seat portion, because I think that would be slippery.

Answer: I don’t know where there’s a pattern (seems like all the pattern books used to have them), but it shouldn’t be hard to improvise. Just use an old sheet and make an upside down “u” shape to fit the front of the back, then make a longer one with a little extra fullness for the back. When sewing, add ribbons or ties where you want it tied in back. Try out, then take apart and use for your pattern.

Folding Chairs FAQ:

Question: How do you remove fabric (puff) paint from plastic folding chairs?
Our company did a craft using watered down fabric paint. The paint mixture dripped all over our white plastic folding chairs.

Question: For an outdoor wedding ceremony, how much space or distance is necessary for rows of folding chairs?
I am planning an outdoor ceremony using white, wood, folding chairs for the guests to sit in. I need to know how much room each row will take up–not in width, but in depth from the altar area. A helpful answer would tell me how much space there needs to be from the back of one chair to the front of the seat of the chair behind it, or the distance from chair back to chair back or something like that. It is a certain number of feet per row? How much space will it take to make it comfortable for the guests?

Answer: My suggestion would be to have your guests as close to the action as possible. This allows them to see and hear what is happening. After all you want them there to witness your wedding or you wouldn’t have invited them!

Put the chairs in the second row with enough room to be able to get up and down comfortably. If you know one of your relatives is a little larger than the others allow room for them too. Just sit down in a chair then put another chair behind it and then measure yourself, the distance for comfort.

The arms where wrapped in foam for padding and the newer ones had a piece of green canvas cloth wrapped around the foam. Some also had a green canvas cloth wrapped around one arm that dropped down and had two pockets on it. One pocket was a beverage holder and the other was square which could hold a magazine or other misc. items. I’m looking for about 10 of the chairs.

Question: I have a large tiger print club chair in my bedroom and i need ideas for a comforter and curtains that will compliment each other as well as other decorative ideas.

Answer: Do you want the chair to stand out and be the focus of the room, or do you want it to blend in?

If you want it to stand out, I’d go with a burnt orange or brown comforter and curtains. That way, it’s not orange, but complements the obnoxious bright orange. Having the rest of the room subdued will make the chair pop out. For the walls, I’d go with a light peach. This will give you a monochromatic scheme that’s not too obnoxious. Don’t go with a triad color scheme; that won’t work with orange. You might also go with an analogous color scheme, like having red trim and a light yellow wall. However, the yellow walls will look dirty. Go with the monochromatic scheme. You’ll like it.
