I started a search for chairs, first by visiting all the furniture stores in the surrounding area to see their displays and catalogs, then by looking online. I finally found chairs at Carrington Court Furniture Company but was a little skeptical because they were only about 1/2 the cost of most of the uphostered chairs I had found. After studying the info on construction, their guarantee, and the possibilities, etc. I decided to send for fabric samples. They allowed me to order as many samples (free) as I wanted and the samples came quickly.
I discovered there were several choices to be made in designing the chairs--first the style, then the leg shape and stain of the leg, and the fabric. I also discovered for a small fee--$20--they would match the leg color to the table color if I had a wood sample I could send them. I could also order extra fabric for $20/yard to cover the seats of my old dining room chairs so when we have more than 6 people for dinner I can use them as supplemental seating. Most of the chair companies I looked into did not allow for an extra fabric order. (I even read on their website they will allow you to send your own fabric to use on the chairs.)
|I am excited to get the other chair today. Then I can throw away the cardboard boxes they came in. (See lower left side of the photo.)|
The chairs are beautiful! They are exactly what I was envisioning when I started the pursuit!
If you are in the market for new dining room chairs, I would highly recommend you check into Carrington Court.
