We enjoyed hearing the story Howard C. from Oceanside, NY, told us about why he bought a set of antique Hunting chairs from us.
The set of 6 antique Hunting chairs in question date to the year 1880 and they were crafted in France. This very nice old set of oak dining chairs is intricately and heavily carved in the traditional French Hunting style.
As you can see, the seat backs are carved with ivy leaves, and the chairs are adorned with barley twists and beautifully carved legs and stretchers. The lavish decorative detail on the antique Hunting chairs is enhanced by the authentic aged patina of the wood.
The chairs caught Howard’s eye because he said his parents had a nearly identical set of dining chairs as he was growing up. Remembering those chairs, Howard knew he had to have this set when he found them on our EuroLuxAntiques.com website! Don’t they look terrific in his dining room?
Howard’s mom still has the pair of end chairs from her set. She is going to swap him that pair for the pair of end chairs pictured in the photo. The deep and rich red walls in this dining room make the perfect accent for the chairs and their aged oak patina. As I’ve said in other client spotlights with red dining rooms, red is a classic decor choice for dining rooms as it stimulates both the appetite and the conversation! Howard’s wife wasn’t too sure if the antique Hunting chairs would be right for the table, but he convinced her and she absolutely loves them now too!
Howard also told us that when the chairs arrived, they were the most well-packed item he’s ever received. We are pleased to hear that because we take great care with our shipping and pride ourselves on it. (We offer free shipping in the contiguous 48 United States and some parts of Canada, but free doesn’t mean that we cut any corners.) It was a pleasure working with Howard!
