Thursday, July 17, 2014 for me, one for you

Ack!! You guys I was beside myself excited when this pair of Chippendale chairs popped
 up on Craigslist, a total bargain, I scored them both for $40! I LOVE them, they're a great
 size, big and wide, and in perfect condition. I've had them for a couple of weeks now and
 decided to paint them, but I'm still not sure of color or where to put them. Minor details.
 Some of the inspiration pics I'm loving are making me want to completely rearrange my living
 room, more details to follow on that.

 Since I have a slew of chairs in our house and my family is beginning to comment about
 them closing in on us I'm on a chair buying freeze. :(
But they keep popping up so I'm sharing my finds with you in hopes someone out there
 will go get these! I've even included some inspiration ideas for you. 

Beautiful pair of Ethan Allen chairs for $150, green velvet cushions here.

A pair of chairs are so versatile arranged in a living room grouping like this. 
They would work perfectly in a smaller living space in an intimate seating arrangement.
A similar arrangement in a larger room.
Tucked in a corner next to a table they'd make a cozy reading nook.

This pair of wing backs are a steal at $45 each here. I love the oversized bold pattern,
 but changing out the pillows to a modern geometric would give them new life!
I'd choose something like one of the Caitlin Wilson prints below.

They would be beautiful in a guest room with navy accents. 
Centsational Girl

Upholstered wing backs at the head of a dining table are a favorite.

Perfect in front of a fireplace with a small x-bench between.
I love the symmetry here, you can barely see the pair of swing arm floor lamps.
House Beautiful

I could easily talk myself into needing all of these!

It's clear I have a problem love for interesting chairs, if you'd like to follow
my Pinterest Board 'Chairs' you'll find lots of fun inspiration.

You are a professional when it comes to CL. I love the newest additions…..clearly you couldn't leave those behind! I look for chippendales all the time but apparently too many people in the Boston area know how cool they are…..I never see ones listed that aren't an outrageous price. I can't believe you got those both for $40!!!!!!!!

You always find the best stuff and I have a chair addiction too

Cyndy Aldred said...

You are so great with CL Pam! I'm so afraid to look here in East Texas. I should start looking at the Houston or Dallas CL. I bet there would be some great stuff. Those chairs are awesome!!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

You know I love your new purchase. I could so easily be a chair hoarder too!

Jill Flory of Sew a Fine Seam said...

Oh your chairs are going to be awesome painted! My family thinks I need a storage shed - and they are right! Can't wait to haul this load to Market and get my living room back! After Market I have some major home makeovers to do - painting walls, slipcovering 2 new-to-me wingbacks I found recently, and figureing out exactly how I want my living room arranged. Time to give my own home some love!

Rebekah {A Blissful Nest} said...

Okay Pam you must divulge what search terms for CL you use. I need major help with that. Blog post??!

galstx said...

Yes, Rebekah! That's my question as well; what criteria are you using to find this stuff? HELP!!!

Haley said...

I'm a chair hoarder too! I just love a good chair and they're always easy to find.
