As styles and tastes change, it becomes important to update favorite posts. Parts of this refreshed post are taken from the original one written last October featuring decorative chairs.
I thought about doing an entirely new post, but I still love some of these accent chairs as much today. No need to throw out the baby with the bath water.
Accent chairs are my home decor weakness. I get all giddy over a good chair. Unique accent chairs are like a classic piece of jewelry that stunningly completes an outfit. It can be one particular feature of an accent chair or the total package that classifies it as unique. The form, upholstery and custom features may work together or stand alone to create the lure of home decor attraction. I like an accent piece with style, purpose and function. Accent chairs characterize all three, and are a nice way to update and complement a space.
I am wild about the line of chairs from Wild Chairy. Andrea Mihalik’s imaginative designs and use of fabrics brilliantly transforms salvaged vintage furniture into must have works of art.
The acrylic Marilyn arm chair from Global Views took fall market by storm. Gorgeous!
Putting together my latest presentation gives me the opportunity to indulge my chair obsession. I thought I would share with you a selection of extravagant, unique and stylish finds for your viewing pleasure. The Amelie Rose Bergere by Eloquence is a timeless style. The Gray Hemp tufted upholstery and washed white wooden legs edify a neutral palette, and will definitely complement any decor.
The look and the provenance of this George I Pine stained hall chair, circa 1720 from the estate of the late Dodie Rosekrans is flawless. The set of eight was included in the Sotheby’s auction of the collection of Mrs. Rosekrans.
MacKenzie-Childs Flower Market outdoor chair is fabulously funky and elegantly eclectic all in one colorful chair.
Black and white houndstooth is a classic and distinctive textile pattern. The traditional elegance of black and white houndstooth is a stunning complement to this Ball and Claw English wing chair from 1stdibs. The chair is rather Mad Men with a pinch of traditional form and a dash of modern flair.
Oly Studio gets the wow factor right with their hand carved Sophie lounge chair. The faux zebra used is a stamped hide and has natural variations and markings.
Antique white chalk finish and nail heads complete the flawless design features. Gorgeous!
Rattan and wicker chairs are a decorative chameleon in the best of ways. They have the ability to fit in with traditional, modern or vintage decors.
I like this option for a home office or study. The white wash finish of the Isabelle club chair from Noir does not read too neutral nor does the burlap fabric.
Nailheads accentuate the patina of the wood and add a classic finishing touch. I’ll take two, please.
The wow is in the character and the details of the hand-carved Rajasthan Chair in sandblasted white. The finish is light yet deep-very complementary to farmhouse chic style, the ooh la la factor, and the decorative oomph.
I call this set the Vanessa Williams chairs because I went and saved the best for last. It comes in as the best for one reason and one reason only- unique details. Unique with fabulous function puts the stylish accent on accent chairs.
