I love chairs. If I bought every chair I loved, my house could not contain them. But some are worth making room for.
These two Louis XVI chairs have moved from room to room in every house I've owned for the past 13 years.
I was fortunate to find them at an estate auction for $40 each. They are in the exact great condition I found them. To this day, I still love the fabric and details.
They have a formal look and are probably not the most comfy to sit on so I usually put them in a welcoming area or a spill over space for guests.
To keep them from being too serious, I added the circles pillows and modern sphere lamp from Target, the wrought iron tables with heavy glass from a yard sale, vintage books from Goodwill, and bookends and a vase from Marshall's.
The difference between a Louis XV and Louis XVI chair is the shape of the legs. XV legs are curved while XVI are straight. You probably already knew this but, if you'd like to read a little history, go to this neat blog, I Dream Of Chairs. La Dolce Vita has a great summary on the chairs as well.
The Louis ghost chairs are chic right now.
And I do love them.
I saw some ghost chairs at Tuesday Mornings a couple of weeks ago for about $100 each. I'm sure that was an excellent deal but I had to keep walking.
My blog is turning 2 years old! Stay tuned for a giveaway!
