Today I’m sharing a post from the archives and our experience with several of the current most popular countertop choices. Take a look via the blue link above.

French Style Accent Chairs

We are renovated our family room now that it’s been opened up more to the new kitchen! I’ll be sharing more of that soon, but I’m on the hunt for accent chairs and came across several that I like. Wayfair is a source that I go to often and the Arlette Wide Armchair from Kelly Clarkson’s line looks so comfy and casual! Her line (if you’re not familiar) is exclusive to Wayfair and everything is French inspired! This Alto Wide Armchair by Kelly is a hit with shoppers and is one that I’m considering as well. Finally, The Bransford is another contender and I know that several of you have ordered this French inspired accent chair in the past! What is your favorite of these chairs?
