Just a Little Jewelry for Your Seat
Most of us want a quick update to our furniture from time to time. And sometimes when you’re purchasing a new bit, that regular chair just does not provide you with the excitement you’re looking for. A perfect way to add some interest for your seating is by including a chair-back pull. Anyone never hurts! Think of a beautiful woman in the perfect dress. Just adding a sparking cocktail ring or beautiful necklace completes off her entire outfit, which makes it appear more expensive. Doesn’t our house deserve just a little accessorizing, also?

Chair back pulls can be a remarkably intriguing design element on your typical chair. For instance, I upgraded this art deco seat for a customer utilizing a lion head ring pull that cost less than $20. It’s a fast and effortless way to add style and interest to your seating without spending a great deal of cash.

The chairs in this gorgeous dining room made are more glamorous by their ring pulls. The added metal detail helps produce a balance in substance by tying in these chairs with the shimmer of this chandelier and antiqued mirror.
Chair-back brings are a gorgeous complement to the polished metal nailheads in this exquisite blue and gray dining room.

All these chair-back pulls create an added detail that elevates the kind of the room. Chair-back pulls are more often seen in restaurant settings than in houses, but I see that this trend moving into residential layout.

My business partner Carolina V. Gentry layouts for the hospitality business, where chair-back pulls can get heavy use. She indicates that when utilizing them in your home, like the ones displayed at the dining room here, they should be for decorative purposes only and not utilized to actually go or pick up the seat.
If you intend to utilize seat back brings for the functionality of ease in moving your seat, a more permanent alternative may be best for you. Take a peek at these smart chairs; the designer has pierced the seat to make a durable handle.

Cliffside Polished Nickel Pull – $10.50
If you want to get creative in your home and update your seat on a dime, then you can just add some cabinet hardware into the back of your seat as a decorative element.
Tip: in case you don’t want to reupholster your seat, go with a hardware
alternative that can twist in by the front part of the hardware, like the option displayed here. Also, be aware of the period of your screw in relation to the depth of your seat! The majority of the time a cabinet pull, unlike the one displayed here, is attached by screwing in by the trunk (this way your screws are concealed on the cabinet door and drawer fronts). While that’s perfect for a cabinet, these screws will not be concealed on the opposite side of your seat, unless you can remove the upholstery and also reupholster it after the hardware is installed.
Equestrian Horse Door Knocker – $29
You can also get creative and use more decorative door knockers as your chair-back hardware. This horse head part with a decorative horseshoe knocker would be a certain conversation piece!
Lion Head Ring Pull – $19.48
Remember that tiny lion pull on the first picture? Here’s that pull available for purchase.
A chair-back pull can elevate your space and stylize your furniture! After all, it’s the details that can take your space to another level.
