The History of Chiavari Chairs
The Chiavari chair, once dubbed Chiavarine, is named after the coastal Italian town of Chiavari, the place where its design originates. Since 1200, carving had been a specialty of the craftsmen in Chiavari.
In 1807, the world-famous chair was created by craftsman Giuseppe Gaetano Descalzi. The chair’s creation began when Stefano Rivarola, a marquis, brought samples of sophisticated chairs back from a trip to France. Rivarola then gave the chairs to Descalzi for evaluation.
After inspecting the chairs, Descalzi committed to improving their design, changing the shape of the backs and the legs. Descalzi wanted to create a chair that is lightweight and utilitarian yet elegant. He certainly achieved his goal as the chairs gained popularity across the globe.
