If you like the traditional look of high-back chairs, but wish they were somewhat more elegant, a good solution would be skirted parsons chairs. There are plenty available, with upholstery in all sorts of colors and patterns.If however, you already own parsons chairs, an alternative would be to buy slipcovers made especially for these types of seats. It’s a solution that is definitely more affordable.
Two models that would look very nice in my dining room:
