TOP 10 CHAIR PICKS

Above is C.R. Laine’s take on black and white, which takes its cue from Mondrian (which is why the chartreuse ottoman is thrown into the mix) Because Mondrian would NEVER do black and white without a little pop of color. Such a fun way to play on the classic black and white.
|Kim Salmela Atelier|
This adorable low back chair with dainty little legs from Kim Salmela Atelier is quite the stunner – the kind of piece that you could throw into any type of room to brighten it up and add some cheer. And in fuchsia, orange, and chocolate – one of my favorite color combinations!

This particular chair from Bungalow 5 was a play on materials – contemporary chrome mixed with a weather beaten leather in the most delicate shade of dove grey. A contrasting but successful execution of materials.
Nothing exudes luxury more than Hermès Orange. Top it of in rich leather, nailhead trim, and a stunning silhouette and you’ve got yourself a winner.
Another cut velvet piece – this one from Four Hands. Simple styling yet such a knockout with the rich grey cut velvet and the nailhead trim.

I almost missed this room if it hadn’t been for Stephanie from C.R. Laine, who asked me if I had seen all the thistle colored pieces. (Thank you, Stephanie!!!) I’m glad she sent me there, because this thistle leather is just divine. With the nailhead trim, it is feminine enough to be prettied up with florals, or masculine enough to stand out in a bachelor pad with rich, dark chocolate brown. I love it when I find these great chameleonic (is that even a word?!?) pieces.
Worlds Away hit the trends on the nail this market. Deep tufting, rich velvet, navy blue, brass trim. It’s all there and looking as beautiful as ever! One is nice, but two is even better…
And this chair from Bernhardt Interiors was my favorite chair of all. I think I must have come back to view it at least three times. The repeating ogee pattern is a play on the Morocco theme that ran throughout the Bernhardt showroom. The color and the pattern creates visual tension, which keeps it exciting, and the cut velvet lets off a beautiful sheen which gives off a subtle hint of luxury.
I hope you enjoyed my chair picks for this market. I told you my favorite, which one is yours?
On a side note, I want to wish my Mr. Wonderful a happy anniversary. Nine years of wedded bliss! I look at our wedding pictures once a year – on our anniversary, and today is the day so I thought I’d share a few pics with you! And yes, my husband is a baseball junkie and I STILL love orchids and succulents, can’t you tell?
