When ordering a piano benches I've noticed that most people do not care in regards to the type of piano bench leg that goes on the bench. The majority of them usually are not aware from the several choices that they have in front of them once they are ordering. I like to tell people that they need to always order a piano bench that will match the legs of their piano to ensure that the look of their set can be continuous and attractive.
Substantially like the wood finish of a piano bench, the legs really should also match the leg style of the piano. The legs are available in numerous styles : straight, fluted, brass ferruled, round, spade, straight tapered, square tapered, antique looking Louis XV, Queen Anne, Early American, round reeded and even octagonal. You may see a picture of every of the leg forms by looking at the piano benches section of a well-known website.
To be certain to order the right type of leg, just look in the photos of legs provided on the piano bench supplier web site after which compare it to the leg of your piano. Make sure to look at whether the leg is square or rounded, if it features a brass ferrule on the bottom of it and whether or not the leg features a series of decorations at the bottom of it. Asking yourself these questions prior to ordering a matching bench will make the job or selection much simpler simply because it's going to limit your options somewhat via the ordering approach .
Some people have told me they feel that limiting their choices is actually a bad thing and I always respond the same way and tell them that is definitely substantially better to have chosen the right piano bench, leg, upholstery and wood finish to match your piano than to have everybody who looks at your piano set and stop and wonder for a moment or two what's wrong with the look and why it does not all appear to fit together in the right way.
I once went to a cocktail party along with the host played a game asking people to identify the pieces of furniture that did not go together. I ought to admit that I was not quite good in the game and didn't take pleasure in playing the game all that much ( my friend, nonetheless , enjoyed the game quite a little ) nevertheless it did bring to mind a few of the pieces that must go together inside a home . His piano and bench did not go together. It turned out that he had owned two pianos and had switched benches. Both were black pianos but one was a grand and the other an upright. The size of the benches and the legs to every single one didn't fit the piano they were sitting in front of. I admit also that I did not notice till after it was brought to my attention but after it was I realized how the pieces just did not go together and that I would have stared at the piano and bench combination not liking the tandem had the mismatch not been corrected.
My final piece of advice would be to not come across yourself as an embarrassed host by obtaining a piano bench that matches your piano. It's significant to always consider that to have your piano looks very good and a matching piano bench legs should go with it.
