These are not cheap investments - you can expect to pay four to five digit figures - but definitely fulfilling, especially for those who love to collect antiques. One of the rules with antique chairs is that, the older and more worn out the condition, the greater the value. The quality of the workmanship and the amount of imperfections (remember this is a good thing) would also influence its pricing. If there are any replaced parts in it, the cost would - and it should - most likely go down.
What makes these chairs so popular - aside from the fact that they're rare - is because of the attention given to the structure and hand carving designs to each piece. It's rarely seen that contemporary-designed chairs would be covered from front, back, and sides with so detailed and elaborate wood carvings. These chairs are not created from ordinary wood materials, but these use high-quality hardwood timber materials - Mahogany, Oak, Elmwood, and many more. That would conveniently explain why these chairs are so durable and heavy. During the Renaissance period, these are also a great symbol of wealth and authority.
Gondola Chair: Similar to the prow of the gondola Boat, this chair has sloppy armrests. There is, in addition to its beauty, a C-shaped back continuing towards the end of the seat. Initially, this term was used to name the side chairs with open backs, but now any seat that is dramatically curved at its back is called to be a gondola chair. This chair was first invented in the mid 17th Century in France and got very prominent till the end of that century. The varied versions of this is called as barrel or tub, but they are not as heavily designed as the original gondola chair.
For example, the new massage therapy chair called Inada Dreamwave, is an incredible hugging machine that features 1,200 square inches worth of body coverage - which is the most of all massage chairs. In addition, it features unique infrared technology that scans the back so that it can deliver relaxing massages in the parts where massage is most needed.
