Games chairs are designed to pair with your card table or chess table so that your seating during a tournament looks great and feels comfortable. Having games chairs that are themed in this way helps create the right atmosphere for your evening of poker, bridge, backgammon, chess or checkers. These pieces are often upholstered in leather, reminiscent of an glamorous casino in Monaco or an exclusive private club. When all your friends and family are gathered around for an enjoyable and entertaining visit, they will always admire your thoughtful decor and attention to detail.
For example, our vintage and vintage style games chairs include beautiful pieces by Jonathan Charles Fine Furniture based on 18th century furniture and featuring symbols of hearts, spades and diamonds. These are from the Windsor collection and they are perfect for your bridge nights! They are crafted in medium walnut wood with leather upholstery that displays the card suit symbols to perfection. The leather is in various shades including a warm chestnut brown and an elegant green called English Library green. Some have arms and many are trimmed with a handsome nailhead trim which accents the leather upholstery and also creates an air of traditional authority.
Our stock also includes genuine vintage items that are often made in France in the 1950s or 1960s. The sense of age and authenticity is wonderful, and you have to wonder what stories these pieces could tell of the players who have used them over the decades for a competitive night of poker or backgammon! Often the frames are in woods such as mahogany and the upholstery is in the traditional green leather with tufted details and nailhead trims being typical.
The luxurious appeal of high-end games chairs will enhance your evening of fun with your friends and also look stunning when not in use.
