Things We Love: French Chairs

The perfect test score. The ultimate birthday. The number of blog posts we’ve done! One hundred really is a great number. Thanks to our “virtual friends” from all over the world for being so wonderful and supportive. We are inspired every day by your ingenious ideas, witty remarks and — most importantly — gorgeous taste. Here’s to 100 more!

To mark this milestone, we decided to carry on our “Things We Love” category with the thing that, perhaps, we love the most: French chairs. Any room, any style, any time, they just work. This room from Design Traveller is an example of juxtaposition at its finest. Distressed pieces and gilded pieces blend together seamlessly to create not just a look, but, what we believe is the ultimate goal in any room: a feel.
These two classic bathrooms, the top from My Ideal Home and the bottom from Designer Amy D. Morris, are places we’d like to linger.

What a sweet, perfect, divine nursery from Decorpad — especially if the sex of the baby is a surprise. It is so simple, but the chandelier and the bergere chair add a touch of elegance.

Neutral colors with a splash of yellow, like these rooms from Sue Burgess Interiors are one of our favorite combinations…

As is the French/rattan combo, like this from Robin Bell Interiors.

French chairs for lounging and a mirrored vanity? I’m so redoing my bathroom…

This big, roomy chair from Dream a Little Dream, looks a bit comfier than the one I’m sitting in right now… And the view out the window makes it seem like this desk is the perfect place to work a little or — well — dream a little dream!

No one does French more masterfully than Charles Faudree. Case in point.

Upholstered French chairs in the dining room feel so cozy and comfortable to me. Wood can be beautiful, but sometimes it looks harsh — and, after a five-course meal, can cause serious back pain! This set from Everything Fabulous is so inviting.

When I see a gorgeous antique pair like these from Living Inside I always wonder who was sitting in them several centuries ago. Was Marie Antoinette lounging in her crinoline in a chair like this one? Who knows.

Books, flowers, a French chair… It’s almost too good, Ryan Korban.

One of our favorite things about French chairs is that, contrary to popular belief, they don’t have to be fussy. This hot pink fabric and imperfect paint from Polly Wreford Photography is so casually chic without being overdone at all.

Thanks again for all your support, and we’d like to apologize for a few technical difficulties that put us a little behind this week. We’re back in action!

    French chairs are definitely on the top of our list of favorites – especially growing up in Europe with parents who collected Louis IV and VI chairs. I recovered mine with a great Kravet print making it more modern and fun. Congratulations on #100!!
