Custom embroidered chair backs are unique details that set these dining room chairs apart.
As if the panoramic de Gournay wallpaper wasn’t enough to raise the bar in this elegant dining room, designer Ruthie Chapman Sommers went for it all. Custom two-tone green upholstered dining chairs circle a pedestal table with flared base. Each chair is upholstered with light green fabric which bends well with the dark wood finish. In contrast, the embroidered chair backs are embellished with intricate medallions. Metal studs edge the chair seats with a graceful criss cross on the lower backs.
The designer then switched to single studs spaced evenly around the chair back, much like the double nail spacing I had done on my French os de mouton chairs. This is an especially elegant and custom way to upholster chairs in a dining room where the backs and often most visible as the chairs are used and viewed. An antique chandelier and mirror amplify the glamour.
