Club chairs were the most popular piece of furniture for a very long time. In the Art Deco era, as is the case with other furniture, club chair too changed to suit the latest fashion trends. They became more affordable. Club chair was less ostentatious with a scaled down design. Instead of pig leather, sheep and cow hides were used more widely.
