Looking For A Chair...Is Always Fun

Chairs are like shopping for accessories for me!  I feel like you can just grab one and take it home!  I have done that before ya know!  That is why I love my Honda Pilot!  You can stick anything in the back!  Anyway, these cuties have to be ordered.  How fun is the Petite Bird Armchair  above from Oly?  Not sure if I am loving that fabric but this would be a fun whimsical addition in a unexpected spot in your home or maybe not...too much?  Actually don't think it work in mine!  Moving on!

I am currently looking for a chair next to my sofa and two flanking my fireplace.  I am glad that there are so many wonderful choices out there!  However, I think I have at least narrowed down the chair for next to the sofa.  The O.Henry House slipper chair above will do the trick!  So cute isn't it?  I will be keeping the fabric simple.  Actually daring to go very light...white?  Scary!!!!  The room is kind of dark and the pop of white will freshen it up...hoping!  Also got that advice from a designer so I should be on the right track!
This Jackson winged chair from Hickory is what I am looking for to flank the fireplace.  There are many versions of this chair out there now.  I am really looking for a chair with height.  The photo below shows my fireplace.  The chairs in this photo are not there anymore and have been moved to a reading area.  I am really looking for a taller chair for here.

Or maybe something with some wood like the Kirin Chair from Oly?  DO NOT like that fabric or color so don't think that is the direction I am going.  It would be a linen fabric for sure and maybe an oat color but on the lighter side.

Hickory Chair's leather...love it...Gunnison Chair.  Just don't have a place for this rustic gem!  I am off to go hunting today for more furniture.  That usually involves the internet and some local shops!  If you would like to see some other chairs recommended by one of my favorite blogs, Good Bones Great Pieces, go here.

Have a great day!

My hubby and I aren't actually big chair people... we just like big, comfy sofas. I am loving those selections though!

Good luck on your shopping trip! I can't wait to see what you end up buying.

Jamilyn,

How about a chair from Gold Williams? I have a settee I am very pleased with.

Maybe too chunky, but nice. And you can get it in any fabric.
