Gorgeous,gorgeous chairs...every one of them is just so stunning!!! I am now following you on Google..so glad I found your blog :o)
I think these are beautiful - I somehow don't think my husband would quite get it though! x Sharon
Oh so divine lady "C"
They could not get anymore soulfully beautiful!
I am looking to create more old in my home with pieces that have a voice as these chairs do, I hear them calling me.
If I were a chair of this kind I would want to just live my life out with my un-touched beauty.
Thank you for all the much more then enough inspiration.
o.m.g. I am *loving* the muslin-covered chairs I'm seeing...and I'm seeing them more and more! There is a little home furnishings shop near me that has one in the window. I.Want.It. Now!
Is this just a case of pulling off the fabric upholstery to leave the underpinnings bare...or is it recovered in muslin and 'faux aged'? Whatever it is, I'm loving it!
I love chairs like this found just as they are.
Love, love, love! Wish I could take them all!
