Barrel chairs are incredibly comfortable little chairs that are generally used in a bedroom or as a comfortable to chair to read in. They have been made for over a hundred years and the design is still incredibly popular. Unfortunately anyone who owns one and loves it dearly will know that because it is used so much, at some point you will consider having it reupholstered or purchase a barrel chair slipcover.
The Caned Barrel Chair takes traditional McGuire materials and updates them with the contemporary lines of hand-bent rattan. While it was designed for comfort - the proportion coupled with the round curve of the back and arms provide a welcoming shape - the rattan and double caning are known for durability.
The wood selected to create the barrels are often French Oak, Hungarian Oak and American Oak. The wine makers take into account not only the trees growing conditions, but the shape of the tree. Winemakers also consider the tightness of the grain of wood to ensure that the barrel provides the best conditions to cultivate the wine. The selection process to create the wood barrels helps guarantee the quality of wood used to build the furniture.
All are the enchantments of the golden times; the times when the things didn't move so fast, and life was less complicated. With the passing time, this furniture has seen generations using it and maybe, sometimes shifted from one place to another. To make them fit in well with your modern day furniture can be a little tricky, but is an achievable task. The barrel chair slipcover is always one of the recommended options for restoring the antique furniture.
