Antique furnishings are popular items in the modern home, but some people feel as though they should be updated in order to express the whimsicality of contemporary design. These 19th Century Wheelback Chairs are modeled on a nostalgic old style, but their finishing treatments are especially fresh.

The Out of the Dark furniture company presents these round-backed seats with spindles, splats and slats that have been beautifully machine-sculpted. While such elements are most often left as unpainted wood, here they are coated in vibrant colors like cyan, red, pink, yellow and blue. To give the 19th Century Wheelback Chairs even more of a visual punch, the dining chairs each feature the pair of rear legs in a glossy black finish.
