The origins of antique hall chairs

In the 18th century, major English designers such as William Kent, Thomas Chippendale, Robert Adam and George Hepplewhite began experimenting with hall chairs. As they primarily used them for decoration rather than practicality, this was a great medium for furnituremakers to express their creativity. Initially, antique hall chairs were designed for the use of servants or strangers waiting on business. However, since they were often the first item to be seen when entering the home, hall chairs made a clear statement on behalf of the owner, showing their wealth, power, individuality, taste and pedigree. Therefore, on a deeper level, antique hall chairs were used primarily for decoration and for statement-making, given that they often displayed a family crest too. Many of the crests often feature fantastical imaginary creatures and pseudo-Latin or French mottos.
