French style chairs. I never met one that I didn’t like and have been a chair lover long enough to have found some authentic antiques that you just don’t see coming and going. Adore…yes, I do actually ADORE this chair and I have a pair of them.
They are vintage and at the time I purchased them locally about 20 years ago I was told that they are from France. They are not marked and are in incredible shape, so I would say that they are vintage circa 1940’s rather than antique. I have cleaned the linen fabric cautiously a few times with some spot cleaner and dish detergent (Dawn) made into a soapy solution with warm water. If you have sold old fabric furniture I would definitely test that method on a small area first before taking my word for it, but it’s worked well for me so far.

The breakfast room at our beach home frankly doesn’t get used often enough, but hopefully once we redo the kitchen (soon…yay!) it will be a bit more inviting. I talked about how I redid THESE CHAIRS and although they are vintage…I found some GORGEOUS FRENCH GREY CANE CHAIRS that have a similar look (and are ON SALE). I would use these chairs in not only a dining nook, but split up a set and have one at the desk, another as a spare office chair and perhaps two in the living room as seating for extra guests. Just because you have a set doesn’t mean that they constantly need to be co-dependent:-)
A French country style bergere chair and ottoman in our beach bedroom would be just as much at home in a living room split up for lounging and I think that I just might try that next. Mixing and matching with chairs to adore is one of my favorite ways to change up a look and keep my decor looking fresh!
