Greek custom chairs

Ancient Greek furniture is known for its elegance and timeless look and has been influential in later periods including 18th century neoclassical, revival, and through to present furniture designs.The few pieces of Greek furniture that survived are made out of bronze, marble and picture designs in Greek vases.  Wood was the dominant material utilized in creating Greek furniture and the finest furniture pieces had inlays of ivory, ebony and precious stones. Pictured to the left is a set of custom dining chairs inspired by the ancient Greek chairs. The rail back has a gilded anthemion pattern also known as a honeysuckle ornament.
