      What is Chinese Chippendale?

      Chinese Chippendale refers to a style of architecture and design initially created by Thomas Chippendale, whereby the open fretwork of railings, balustrades, and furniture infill between top and bottom framing and vertical supports has a lattice-like series of interlocking diagonals. This style of design has also come to embrace elements of Chinoiserie such as faux bamboo carved framing and a more casual look that is far less ornate than Rococo, French Empire, or any of the more maximal design styles of Europe. Today, the Chinese Chippendale style that has evolved since Thomas Chippendale's creation and inspiration is truly timeless.

      Why should you buy this dining chair?

      For those designers and home owners who appreciate bespoke works of art and beauty, these hand-made rattan furnishings by David Francis are made to order and they bring a splash of color along with the timeless Chinese Chippendale design style that never gets old.

      What else should you know before you buy this dining chair?

      Since these rattan furnishings are hand-made, measurements are approximate and can vary depending on the craftsman who is making the piece.  Slight differences in size do not constitute defect.

      Please review the product details and our shipping and returns policies.  This is a Make To Order (MTO) item and is not returnable.  Again, differences in color, size, and decoration, do not constitute defect.  While we warranty that they will arrive free of damage or defects, there are rules to follow when making a warranty claim.  We encourage our customers to read our Warranty Policy before making their purchase.

      Since this is a (MTO) item, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for your item to arrive.
