Eventually, all things will be new again. Right now, the “new” are clear chairs which were first the rage in the 60s and 70s.
Originally made out of Lucite – a type of plastic invented by DuPont in the 1930s – the chairs gave off a futuristic vibe. The chairs took a break during World War II when the raw materials were used for the war effort.
But the minimalist approach to seating, where the sitter becomes the focus rather than the chair, enthralled some who were seeking to find themselves during the “peace and love” era.
Recognizing the industry trend, the Chiavari Chair Company began producing the clear chairs for their wholesale customers.
The chairs have been a success. Billed as the hottest chair in the industry, the clear Chiavari is a favorite at weddings and has become fashionable for home decor as well, especially in small spaces. The chair’s clear design doesn’t clutter the room and gives the impression of open space.
Another popular clear style is the ghost chair which is inspired by a Louis XIV chair design. The ghost chairs are available with or without arms.
Form and Function
While clear chairs have the cool quotient, from a design standpoint they are highly versatile.
Because of their non-intrusive look, the design of the event location will stand out. Clear chairs also open up your color palette, allowing for the use of colors which might not work with traditional chairs.
These chairs require no special care and clean up with warm soapy water. They are also stackable for easy storage and transportation.
The Chiavari Chair Company was founded 10 years ago and has grown from a small, family company to one with three large showrooms, including in Miami, the Los Angeles area and Northern New Jersey. The company serves thousands of clients from event planners to multi-national companies.
