The Chiavari chair is not only classic, it’s also extremely versatile. This is exactly why event venues, banquet halls, and event furniture rental businesses tend to own these great chairs! There are hundreds, maybe millions of ways you can decorate an event chair, especially the Chiavari chair. Its classic open-back design makes adding decorations super easy! But it also looks beautiful on its own. Here are some ideas, tips, and tricks to choosing the right chair décor style for your event.
Choose your favorite color
Whether you’re going for a matched look or you’re contrasting dark chairs with light colored table settings, the first step is choosing colors. If you’re planning on covering up your chairs then just make sure you choose a color that won’t show through. Otherwise, the world is your oyster! Here’s a link to the Chiavari chair colors available.
Another color decision you need to make is choosing cushions. You can either match them to your event chairs or get them to contrast in a cool way! You can even get brightly colored cushions that go with the decoration you’re choosing for your event. Here are some great quality cushions available in a wide variety of colors.
You can cover Chiavari chairs just like any other event chair. However, there are plenty of different styles of covers to choose from!
Some covers only go over the chair’s backrest, some go all the way down to the floor, others are made of spandex and fit tightly over the whole chair. For a more contemporary look try a see-through chiffon or gauze cover. You can also find embellished see-through covers that make your chairs look like they’re embellished with rhinestones!
To recap: if you’re hosting a very serious event such as a meeting you might want to cover up your chairs completely. For more social events, go for see-through covers that work with your design theme.
Another option that adds some drama to your chairs while still keeping their design visible is a sash. Sashes come in any color you might need, plus they can be arranged in a variety of different ways. Some knots are pretty simple, however, others are quite intricate and complex. You can even use the backs of your Chiavari Chairs to weave sashes through! Here are some examples as well as a couple of tutorials to show you how to tie them. Sashes work better for very formal events or for event designs that require a very luxurious feel. You can even add rhinestone pins to make them look even more luxe!
Ribbons come in all sorts of colors, textures, and sizes! They’re perfect for adding a tiny touch of personal flair to event chairs, or even for decorating ceremony areas. Ribbons can be tied in different ways, but they’re almost always pretty and understated. If you’re planning a rustic or shabby-chic themed event.
Flowers & greenery
Tying flowers and foliage to your Chiavari chairs is a beautiful way of adding a personal touch to your décor! Add bunches of greenery on top or to the side of your chairs for a very rustic and almost whimsical look. For a more classic and fairy-tale like feel, you can tie colorful flowers to the center of your chair. These can also be used to designate sweetheart tables at weddings!
