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.
French Style Chairs – How To Design With Them
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 CANE CHAIRS that have a similar look. 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!
