1. A town on the Italian riviera, in the province of Genoa.

Wedding Wise:

Those versatile, elegant chairs that you never knew you wanted, until you see them and compare them to most venue’s chairs! Seriously though, I thought it’d be great to shed a little light on these well known, sought after seating options!

Chiavari chairs are named after the town in Italy where the chair was first designed and built by Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi. It is said that Descalzi designed his chair based on several Parisian chairs. He sought out to make a lightweight, utilitarian (yet elegant) chair. Mission accomplished!

On their own, Chiavari chairs are elegant and beautiful. They come in a variety finished materials and colors (bamboo, beechwood, bronze, steel, oh my!).

While they are perfectly lovely on their own, they also provide a beautiful base for additional styling, be it floral, sash, or other!
