Chair-ity!


Chairs are a functional item in most rooms but this season we are going to be seeing a lot of different styles, looks and fabrics in and on chairs.


Some of my favourite looks in chairs are:


-- a mis-match set, so one look with your table maybe something from a rummage sale that looks a bit rough and add a modern looking set of chairs


-- go bright! have a neutral table with some different coloured chairs. this is a great look in an eat-in kitchen


-- have a dining set you want to update? try changing out the upholstery on the seats. i did this with my set, the seats were covered in a white vinyl and we replaced it with a funky animal print.


-- re-upholster you traditional wing back in a non-traditional print. the unexpected adds personality and unique flair to any room.


-- look for some industrial pieces to use as seating. an old work bench can be used at the front entry or in a bedroom.


-- the 'ghost' chair is a clear plastic chair that looks great in a bedroom, living room or dining room. it can make a smaller space look huge but still provides seating


Some of my favourite places to look for chairs -


- Design within Reach (check out the cherner collection, the marais collection and the navy chair) www.dwr.com


- Phillip Van Leeuwen (check out the 'petite', the ghost arm chairs and the 'frilly')


- looking for something vintage try 'Found Design' www.founddesign.ca


- check out garage sales and antique shops for something truly unique and one of a kind.


An occasional chair is another way to add personality and flair in any room. Chairs can be a bit costly but think of them as an investment piece plus you want something well made so it lasts and it is comfortable.
