A Wedding Style Trend - The Cross Back

I have a new favorite chair! The Cross-Back Chair, also known as (x-back) has made its way into the Event Furniture Market. This new type of seating models a Rustic Tuscan feel. These chairs have wonderful clean lines and an elegant farmhouse feel. They can be used at both farm-style and formal weddings, private parties and corporate events.

Crafted of solid wood and handsomely distressed with a weathered finish, these chairs pair well with round or long reception tables. Dress your tables with natural color linens for a nicely cohesive contrast or use Farm style wood tables for a nice blend of woods.
