I have a few favorite chairs in my home but one of my favorite "statement chairs" is located in my living room. I purchased the chair from Ethan Allen about 14 or so years ago and I think it reflects a mixture of styles. From looking at the One Kings Lane guide, I could see that the curved arms, graceful lines and solid square back reflect the styles of the Empire and Neo-classic periods. It even has a bit of a British Colonial look and works with the tropical/traditional style that I attempt to carry throughout my home.
I think the chair compliments my seagrass chairs too.
Originally, I was going for even more of a British Colonial style
like this one from a Caribbean resort.

I had already bought the Ethan Allen chair by the time I saw this one but this chair definitely reflects the look I was after for in my living room.
Anyway, it was fun searching the various categories in the Home Decor Resource. Not only did I learn a few things but I enjoyed browsing through their inventory of pieces to purchase! If you have questions about the style of an existing piece in your home or are just curious about the history of furniture, you should check out the One Kings Lane Home Decor Resource. You might learn a few things!
Do you have any statement chairs in your home?
