What are the two things you spend the maximum time doing at home? In most case it is lying down and sitting and probably more of the later than the former. In other words, chairs are the most important item of furniture in your house. You probably have various types of chairs in your home- sofas in the drawing room, recliners in the lounge, an office chair in the study, casual chairs in the bedroom and of course, the kitchen chairs. These chairs will usually have wooden or metal frames with leather of fabric upholstery. Your two main criteria in buying a chair are comfort and appearance. But what if there is a third dimension you can include? What if a chair can be a work of art? That’s where metal art chairs enter the picture.
A metal art chair is not just a chair made out of metal. The key word in the phrase is “art.” A metal art chair is one that is so designed that it catches the eye. Its form and shape are pleasing to behold and out of the ordinary. And just like any piece of art, it causes you to redefine your way of looking at things – in this case, sitting comfort. And make no mistake about it, a metal art chair, be it simple or embellished, made of any metal, with or without upholstery and cushioning, still fulfils it primary goal, to provide comfortable sitting. If it does not do this, it is a work of metal sculpture, pleasing to behold but of no physical application.
Artists who design metal art chairs are also experts in their field of ergonomics and body structure or else work closely with those who are so that the metal art chairs they design do not sacrifice comfort for art.
A metal art chair adds character to any room and redefines its focus. Just as with any form of art, overdoing it will ruin the effect. But the metal art chair placed in a drawing room full of conventional furniture will be a conversation piece. And, as with any work of art, it will tell those who see it a lot about the owner.
Metal art chairs stand out in any surroundings because of their eyes catching designs and the intricacy of the metal embellishment. You will have seen artistically designed wrought iron garden and patio chairs. But what if you could take the concept further and bring these chairs indoors? A majority of chair designs for different uses are now available in forms that classify them as metal art chairs. Of course, there are some things a metal art chair is not suitable for, like a recliner. Having said that, there’s really not that many applications where replacing an ordinary chair with a metal art chair will not add both beauty and comfort.
Metal art chairs are available off the shelf at both retail outlets and online stores. If you have your own designs, there are hundreds of metal artist who will be glad to fabricate the chair you have conceived.
