The Klismos Dining chair is based on the ancient Greek chair, which can be seen in stone carvings dating back to 500BC, the Klismos is characterised by its splayed legs and curved back rail.
The design was resurrected in the 18th century and remains a design
As an Interior designer I have no hesitation in recommending this comfortable chair for an unfussy traditional formal dining room with a modern edge. This elegant chair (above left)can be custom finished and upholstered in a modern fabric. The curve back offers wonderful support and fits well with round dining tables.
