I wrote a piece recently on cool chairs. It got me to thinking how easy it would be to set up a little business creating really funky chairs out of materials found for free or nearly free just about anywhere. It is a lot easier to find used industrial parts than people realize. Often these parts can be cleaned up, polished, stained or painted and with a little creativity, turned into beautiful pieces of furniture that double as terrific conversation items.
The primary and most basic choice is the size of your chair rail. Don't forget that if your rail might be to perform a practical, protective aspect it shouldn't be so narrow that it fails to safeguard the wall from chair backs. Outside of that, however, chair rail ideas may easily incorporate many widths of molding.
Likewise a selection of a subtle, pale tint, tone or shade of the primary color of the wall may produce a beautiful impression when the same color is picked up by accents in the room. Thus a medium blue wall might have a smooth, soft gray-blue chair rail, with corresponding gray-blue cushions on the sofa and runners on the incidental table.
The internet proves to be a good choice where you can create a website to display pictures of your custom-made chairs on the website. Include all of the information of what is available for people to order, on your website. Just make sure that your website is easy to use and easy to place orders on too. If your site makes it too difficult to order your chairs in preferred fabric choices and sizes, people will give up and look for another company to deal with.
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.
Looking for more cute ways to decorate your reception chairs? Use your wedding theme as inspiration. Tie sand dollars to the chair backs for a beach wedding or use jeweled snowflake ornaments for a winter wedding. Because there are so many chairs at a wedding reception, paying a little attention to decorating them will pay big dividends in the overall wedding design.
