A History of Chiavari Chairs

Posted on

The Chiavari, with its odd name and complicated pronunciation has become a household name for its wide use in elegant events throughout the world. The chair is most famous for its use in prestigious events like the Grammys and the Oscar parties, but most people know them for its grand popularity with brides; it is, by far, a bride’s favorite chair.

The Chiavari chair is named for the coastal Italian town of Chiavari from which the design of the chair originates, at that time the chair was dubbed Chiavarine. Carving had been a specialty of Chiavari’s craftsmen since the year 1200, and it was here that in 1807 the chair came to life.

The chair was created by craftsman Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi, and originated when the Marquis Stefano Rivarola brought samples of some very elegant chairs back from a trip to France. He gave the chairs to Descalzi for evaluation, who committed to make an improvement on the design and, among other things, changed the shape of the back and the legs. Descalzi wanted to create a lightweight, utilitarian, yet elegant, chair. As the chairs gained popularity, multiple new versions have emerged.
