Ballard Designs has designed a terrific looking Swedish country chair called “Sorrento” that has all the good looks of one of the most popular Swedish chair designs. The chair features fluted turned legs, with a classic Louis XVI square back painted in white. The classic slat back frame features tapered fluted legs, padded arm rests and padded linen seat. This chair is part of Ballard Design’s exclusive Casa Florentina collection. They sell it for $559, and comes in your choice of several hand-applied finishes. Skilled artisans apply your custom finish in layers, distressing each one by hand using the same simple tools and techniques employed by Florentine artists for centuries.
Consider upholstering your dining chairs in a shade of white. White works with a multitude of other colors such as gray, off white, green and blue. Swedish chairs are often painted, which makes the lighter shades of upholstery appear clean and fresh and provide a nice contrast against the rough distressed wood
