I have a chair fetish!
Mid Century numbers, classic bergères, Bent wood Thonet’s, leather club chair or iconic Chippendales… I love all chairs. Call that equal opportunity or simple madness, but I love to decorate with chairs!
Chairs have a decorative quality to them that few pieces of furniture can equal. To create order and symmetry beside the fireplace, to fill a small nook with book resting on top, or to furnish the floor space in front of a blank wall, chairs are the most versatile of all.
They are also easily recognizable. Their designs can be easily catalogued by eras and genre, rendering them excellent collectable items that hold their value if not increase it.
That being said, I never shy away from a good reupholstering job in order to bring a vintage chair into the Twenty First Century. Bergère… beware!
