HAVE A SEAT!
I love a great chair! It has always been a little addiction of mine. There is something about finding a big, beautifully upholstered armchair, new or old, that makes my heart go ping.
I just adore the look of worn burlap chairs. The vintage ones here are so lovely. The amazing covered chair is new from Restoration Hardware.
I must share this gorgeous chair with you. I saw it on another blog and she was selling it at a show. I am sorry but I forget what blog it was I just grabbed the pictures so I could drool over it every once in a while.
I covered my kitchen chairs in antique french flour bags. They look fabulous and are so durable.
The tufted back chairs have always been one of my favourite looks. They remind me of chairs that would have sat in an old english study.
I was so pleased when I found these English Style chairs from Bernhardt Furniture. I have two in my livingroom.
What a great style this French chair is. That lovely deep seat and high back.
That is why I fell for this chair, another Bernhardt. I call it my reading chair, it is where I cuddle up with a good book, if I can get there before on of the cats.
I picked up this Art Deco Club Chair in a thrift shop for $20. I have it in my kitchen and it has been reupolstered and slip covered many times. Right now it is black and cream stripes. Very comfy!
Then there are my studio chairs. My gorgeous vintage Monkey Chairs were my cheap auction finds. I have posted about them before, I never get tired of that fabric, I wish I had some more. And the blue high back chair my husband gave me for my birthday one year. He says I had him build the studio so I had a place to put more chairs.
So here is my dilemma. How many chairs is too many chairs? I have a total of 33 chairs between my house, studio and screened-in room. That is including 9 upholstered armchairs, rockers, dining chairs but not benches and outdoor seating. I think I have room for some more, maybe this last one because I really, really like it!
