Sitting Pretty in Choice Chairs



 

From Dining Room To Bar To Accent... Chairs Can Be kind Of An Obsession For Someone Like Me.


I’ve been known to have dreams about them and to hold on to hand-me-downs for years and years. A chair can always be repainted or recovered, stripped or stained, so why would you ever kick one to the curb?

I was recently given a chair that belonged to my grandfather. He wasn’t in the advertising business, but his sense of style would have fit right into the offices of Sterling Cooper. And this chair! I love it and no other “new” chair could take its place.

I guess I’ll have to admit, however much I don’t want to, that “out with the old, in with the new” does have its place. Sometimes you just need a new set of dining room chairs. Maybe you’ve worn yours down, or they are simply out of style. Or perhaps you could just add a couple of accent chairs to the head of your table.If your desk needs a new look, a fun vintage chair might do just the trick. Or if the idea of “bottoms up” is a little too close to describing your bar stools … they need a replacement.

Whatever the reason, chairs can be an investment. You want good ones. Sturdy and stylish are the keys. So take a seat, put up your feet and check out a few picks for a good chair; I’ve got a little bit of everything here. And if you happen to be sitting in a favorite right now, remember it can stay – it just might need to sit out a round or two.
