Parsons Dining Chairs
Dining chairs are used as seating at a dining table. They are available in different designs and styles. Common styles of dining room chairs include parsons dining chairs. The parsons dining chairs are a functional and simplistic design capable of blending in with many different types of décor. Initially, the parson chair was designed to be part of a matched set of furnishings. The most common application was as a dining room suite that included a minimum of four chairs and a parson table. Like the chair, the parson table is a simple linear design that is free of intricate scrollwork or other design elements. Together, the two pieces of furniture were ideal for creating a sleek modern look that was somewhat light and airy while still retaining natural overtones. This was in contrast to the heavy dining furniture of the early 20th century that tended to dominate a room, sometimes to the point of making the space feel cramped.
