It is not always necessary to cover wedding chairs with slipcovers to make them prettier. If the chair itself is already attractive, you might just want to add a little decoration to it. For a formal evening wedding, gold tassels would be an elegant addition to the backs of the reception chairs. Make the bride's chair extra special by designing a custom tassel made entirely of crystals - all the better to complement her crystal wedding jewelry, of course. The tassel motif would be wonderful to use selectively in other parts of the wedding design, such as on the napkins or as a design motif printed on the place cards.
While looking for chair rail ideas anyone may also turn to other modes of designing. A flat, uncomplicated chair molding could be elevated by simply the add-on of a decorative band of wall paper. These border strips are generally applied at the top of a wall, however, if selected carefully may be used for a wide chair molding also. Be careful: most of the time you may wish to use either a ceiling high border or a band for the chair rail, however not both. Too much decoration is no longer a beautiful element, but mere clutter.
A typical quality beanbag chair will have a durable muslin inner bag that holds the beans, or filling. Then it has an outer cover that can later be taken off and laundered as needed, this cover has a zipper on it (or Velcro closures). It takes 3-5 yards of fabric each for the inner case and the outer cover of an adult size chair, the outer cover will need a long zipper (or Velcro). Each adult chair requires about 6 cu. feet of filling.
When you have the vision in your mind of setting up office decor and conference room chairs you just assume to yourself when the time comes we will get a table and some seating and that will be that. If you do not have a specific idea in mind you could find yourself getting lost in a sea of selections.
Here are a couple chair ideas. Go exploring your own town and see where you can find discarded wooden window blinds. Cut them to about three feet wide stain and generously clear-coat them. You'll need to cut out a support form which you should find easily enough on the web by searching for 'window blind chair'. Cheap plywood will do the job. Cut the two support forms and glue/nail it all in place. After a few cracks at it you'll end up being able to build wonderfully cool chairs that cost next to nothing and can easily be sold for $100.00. The second is simply an old steel drum. These can be found anywhere for free and only need a good cleaning and some clear coat finish. Take a look at the photo. You only need to make a good cut, cover the edge with rubber edging and add a cheap cushion and some $10.00 legs. Again - this should sell for $100.00 easy.
Be sure to keep the size in proportion to the room as well as the additional decorative elements, though: a wide molding in a small room filled with fine, dainty furnishings will appear gawky and awkward. Too slender a rail in a larger room decorated with grand set pieces of furniture could look too insignificant and frail for the setting it is placed in. All the chair molding ideas you think about should take into consideration the design of the home where they will be seen.
