Speaking of China Round-back Chairs, also called Ming Chair, I believe a lot of people are no strangers of these vintage dining chairs. In nearly all solid wood dining furniture markets, you will see it, never out of date.

"Round sky and square earth" is a typical universe view in ancient Chinese culture. The shape of retro dining chairs are the combination of square and circle:  the back is round, the seat is square. The Ming style chair fully reveals the elegant and leisurely feelings, which is the concrete manifestation of the traditional philosophy. The most obvious feature of the Ming armchair is that the back is attached to the handrail, from high to low. When sitting, it can make people's arms lean against the circular handrail. The shape is graceful and graceful, the body is plump and vigorous. We can say that Round back Ming Chair is one of the most unique chair styles in China.

The history of the retro round back dining chairs

Why are the wooden round-back chairs so popular? Well, let's start with its history.

The history of the Round-back armchair began in Tang Dynasty. With the unprecedented prosperity of the economy, the upper class of Tang Dynasty favored the furniture with comfortable back, beautiful shape and ornate decoration. And the embryonic form of the Round-back Chair appeared.

Tang Dynasty Chair

In the Song Dynasty, the style of the Round-back solid wood chair went to the style of simplicity and gracefulness. Its back and handrail smoothly went down, humbly introverted. The back circle and seat surface are round show the features of "round sky and square earth".

Song Dynasty chair

In the Ming Dynasty, advocating the simple and rustic style, the literati who pursued spiritual enjoyment participated in the furniture design. They use lines, blanks and the nature of wood to show the beauty of shape, charm and craftsmanship. The back and the armrest are connected to each other. And the back of the chair is designed to form an "S" curve and an inclination angle of 100 degrees with the seat surface. These more comfortable innovative designs push the Ming Chair to its peak. This is also the design origin of modern Round-back chairs.

Ming Dynasty Chair

Then came the Qing Dynasty. During this period, the Round-back side chair took place in the royal culture, showing the magnificent transformation of the aristocratic blood. It evolved into a royal "palace chair". The palace chair changed and inherited the tradition, and carried out drastic reform and innovation in the shape and charm of the Ming Dynasty. The lines and backrest are more straight, and the backrest is more perpendicular to the seat surface. Simplify the element into heavy, complex for the elegant innovation, so that the shape of the Round-back dining chair is more perfect.
