Inspiring Interiors:: The Perfect Side Chairs

Have you checked out the new issue of Lonny?  It is their travel issue and it is fabulous!  Flipping through the issue reconfirmed my need for two comfy, yet sophisticated side chairs.  About six months ago, I came across two navy French parlor chairs at Housing Works Thrift Shops here in New York, but I hesitated, but then a trip back to the store revealed that I was too late, they were gone.  I am still thinking about them (sigh) anyways, my search has begun again.  Here are some of my picks, I am gaga over any bergere chair.  Continue for more...

  2. These are such pretty picks, Alison! I love the look of two statement chairs–I have teal ones in my living room that I refurbished, but someday I'd love to invest in plush velvet ones (maybe in pink, or navy like you found!).

  4. Is it weird that I LOVE side chairs?! I feel like you can really play with color since it's not such a big piece (like a couch).

  14. I think side chairs really add somthing to a room and I like your selection here. Once you find a style you love it's easy enough to have them recovered when you decide to change the décor of a room.

  16. I love the garden pink chairs on the first photo. They look sophisticated yet very cozy. Pink fits in with the light-toned fixtures. It's pleasing to the eye! And it's one thing that a woman would really love to have in her home. It's good to relax there as you keep yourself warm.
