What’s New Wednesday: 8-Way Hand Tied Upholstered Chairs
April 22, 2015 in Home Furnishings, What's New Wednesday | no comments

We recently received three different styles of upholstered Vanguard Furniture chairs. From modern to traditional, each of our three new chairs are distinctly different and represent the variety that Vanguard prides itself on. Vanguard is based in North Carolina, which remains one of the headquarters for fine, American crafted furniture. It is one of our favorite upholstery lines due to their quality, variety and the many customization options available.

One of our new chairs is a “new traditional” take on the wing chair. The chair has a traditional look, but is still slim-lined. The fabric on the chair features a subtle graphic pattern and the back of the chair is accented with pewter nails. The legs on the chair are hand-finished in a cool gray finish. The chair showcases Vanguard’s attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.  Notice how the fabric pattern matches perfectly up the front of the chair.  This is costly for the manufacturer to do and many vendors skimp on details like this.

The dimensions of the chair are 33″ W x 33″ D x 41″ H. The arm height is 24 inches and the seat height is 21 inches. The chair sells for $2,439.99. If this chair looks familiar, we used this style (in a different fabric) in one of our favorite projects. The chairs looks exquisite by the stone fireplace in this reception area.

We also received a modern club chair from Vanguard’s Michael Weiss collection. His collection is known for its sleek, contemporary lines. This is the perfect accent chair with its sleek square arms, square side panels, and added nailhead trim.

The chair is polished and handsome with its neutral fabric and brushed nickel nailhead trim and ferrules. The dimensions are 34″ W x 36″ D x 37″ H. The arm height is 26 inches and the seat height is 21 inches. It sells for $2,269.99.

Our last chair has the deepest seat and it is perfect for lounging. The chair features a waterfall skirt and two back cushions. The added skirt makes the lounge chair look more tailored and put together. The neutral fabric shown has great texture, and the dimensions of the chair are 32″ W x  44″ D x  37″ H. This particular style of chair can be ordered in a sofa or with exposed legs. The arm height is 26 inches and the seat height is 20 inches. The skirted chair sells for $1,999.99.

All of the chairs featured today have unique features and distinct looks depending on your style. However, all share the same standard of quality: each chair is 8-way hand tied. This type of construction is important if you want your chairs to offer support and remain comfortable to lounge on for a longer period of time. If you are looking for the proper support from your seat and a level of comfort that is built to last, then 8-way hand tied is the premium choice.
