Chiavari chairs are named after Chiavari the sunny town on the Italian Riviera. The art of carving had been a specialty of Chiavari’s craftsman since the year 1200, at which time they had been making ornaments and oars for the Genoa Republic. By the year 1800, the Rapinaro district had become home to a great many craft workshops where cabinet and chair makers were creating products of seasoned wood.
The legs and backs of the chairs they made were contoured to follow the natural shape of the branch from which they came. The town’s craftsmen braided willow ribbons to make the seats that brought the Chiavari name into this world.
The chair design is a combination of French and Italian elegance originating when samples of some extremely elegant chairs were imported from France. The Italian craftsmen combined the French elegance with Italian design and the Chiavari chair was born. The new chair far exceeded the French models in both functionality and beauty.
