Classic Greek Furniture – Klismos Chair

Klismos Chair1 Classic Greek Furniture   Klismos ChairEvergreen Antiques was selling an American 20th Century Neoclassical style painted Klismos armchair that featured a wonderful original painted finish.  Evergreen’s Klismos chair featured an amazing hoop back raised on carved scrolled wing supports above a wooden seat.  The klismos chair is famous for its hoop back and sabre legs, and was originally created some time during the mid-fifth century. This ancient Greek chair was recognized from depictions on painted pottery and reliefs from ancient Greece. The klismos was again revived during the second, archaeological phase of European neoclassicism. Recently, in 2010, Restoration Hardware produced a line of outdoor furniture designed in the Klismos style. This style still looks to be some of the best designed chairs ever to be made.
