Things We Love: French Chairs

January 20, 2011 § 3 Comments

Design Traveller

The perfect test score. The ultimate birthday. The number of blog posts we’ve done! One hundred really is a great number. Thanks to our “virtual friends” from all over the world for being so wonderful and supportive. We are inspired every day by your ingenious ideas, witty remarks and — most importantly — gorgeous taste. Here’s to 100 more!

To mark this milestone, we decided to carry on our “Things We Love” category with the thing that, perhaps, we love the most: French chairs. Any room, any style, any time, they just work. This room from Design Traveller is an example of juxtaposition at its finest. Distressed pieces and gilded pieces blend together seamlessly to create not just a look, but, what we believe is the ultimate goal in any room: a feel.

These two classic bathrooms, the top from My Ideal Home and the bottom from Designer Amy D. Morris, are places we’d like to linger.

Decorpad

What a sweet, perfect, divine nursery from Decorpad — especially if the sex of the baby is a surprise. It is so simple, but the chandelier and the bergere chair add a touch of elegance.

Sue Burgess Interiors

Neutral colors with a splash of yellow, like these rooms from Sue Burgess Interiors are one of our favorite combinations…

Robin Bell Design

As is the French/rattan combo, like this from Robin Bell Interiors.

Decorpad

French chairs for lounging and a mirrored vanity? I’m so redoing my bathroom…

Dream a Little Dream

This big, roomy chair from Dream a Little Dream, looks a bit comfier than the one I’m sitting in right now… And the view out the window makes it seem like this desk is the perfect place to work a little or — well — dream a little dream!

Charles Faudree Designer

No one does French more masterfully than Charles Faudree. Case in point.

Everything Fabulous

Upholstered French chairs in the dining room feel so cozy and comfortable to me. Wood can be beautiful, but sometimes it looks harsh — and, after a five-course meal, can cause serious back pain! This set from Everything Fabulous is so inviting.

Living Inside

When I see a gorgeous antique pair like these from Living Inside I always wonder who was sitting in them several centuries ago. Was Marie Antoinette lounging in her crinoline in a chair like this one? Who knows.

Ryan Korban Designer

Books, flowers, a French chair… It’s almost too good, Ryan Korban.

Polly Wreford Photography

One of our favorite things about French chairs is that, contrary to popular belief, they don’t have to be fussy. This hot pink fabric and imperfect paint from Polly Wreford Photography is so casually chic without being overdone at all.

Thanks again for all your support, and we’d like to apologize for a few technical difficulties that put us a little behind this week. We’re back in action!
