As I said in my Trace Mayer post, (here) The Lauritzen Gardens Antique Show really put me in the mood for updating my decor! I was in comfortable mode. Everything was fine, but when you are inspired, really inspired, things start to stand out that didn't bother before. My kitchen chairs for instance. There's nothing particularly wrong with my kitchen chairs. They just aren't very french country and they aren't antiques. This little realization sent me straight to 1st Dibs, the greatest website in the world. (I may have used that phrase before.)
So here are some of the options I found for new kitchen chairs:Rousset Antiques...
Let's start with this 18th C Venetian Secretaire... really spectacular!
Oh my goodness, I'm dying over this piece of furniture. Is this not the most beautiful couch you've ever seen in all your life? Well, you'll never guess what... IT'S IN KATHY'S LIVING ROOM! You'll see it in the magazine...
Can you say fancy Crystal Chandelier? Magnificent, isn't it?Antique Shops & Designers is a delightful magazine full of exquisite home interiors, home decorating, and design. Kathy Rousset Alexander's home just happened to be on the current cover, and I can see why ~ it's full of gorgeous antiques!
Take a look at these amazing images...HERE.
(Kathy's home is featured on pages 58-67 of Volume 7)Richard White, we've chosen some charming replacements... The small print is a Vervain (Charles Faudree) and will go on the side of the chair, between the nailheads. The buffalo check will go on the back... and that gorgeous print on the front is a Brunschwig and Fils. I'm thinking this charming combination will result in the cutest darn chairs I've ever seen.
I love mixing chairs... especially in the kitchen!
