Parson chairs evoke images of France, the center of the fashion world, and the country renowned for its intricate palaces and striking furniture. This chair, though, is drastically different than the engraved chairs that can be found around Bordeaux. Parsons are much simpler, with a linear design free from embellishment or detail. They are ideal for using as dining chairs in a set or individually in a room with the light, airy style going well with almost any decor and home style.
To add a modern twist to the parson chair, team a classic design with a modern round glass table. Color contrasts draw the eye and make a furniture set the focal point in a room, so choose wooden chairs with a cushion in a lighter shade than your table. Light grays, silvers and blacks are perfect, especially with statement legs such as Warson padded chairs.
For office furniture, the chair needs a sleek feel. Opt for a leather chair to channel that executive feeling and team it with a dark wooden desk. For a minimalist look, just add a bookcase and a simple lamp or make a more luxurious environment with a plush rug.
Parson chairs are great for more relaxed tables, too. Try teaming a contemporary dark table with a contrasting fluffy rug and adding fabric chairs in a variety of different colors. Keep the colors in the same range for a coordinated finish, such as pastels or muted bolds. Cappuccino orange, green, black and burgundy padded chairs are a great example, and a tree of potted plant finishes the look perfectly.
Skirted chairs are ideal for living rooms or bedrooms that require a warmer finish. Dark shades such as chocolate brown are great for adding that luxurious feel or opt for a light neutral to lighten up a room and add a sun-kissed finish. Glamorous accessories such as golden rugs, candles and intricate vases bring the whole look together.
