Dine In


A couple of months ago I shared some pics of my dining room in progress. We are still lacking side chairs and need to reupholster the vintage chairs that sit at either end. I like to pretend that they are snooty and insult each others shabbiness in British accents.

Chair #1: "Why, dear fellow, if I looked as ragged as you I would bury myself in the yard."

Chair #2: "Oh, be a good chap and move thyself to the garage to save all of our eyes from your hideousness."


While the chairs have not been a priority I have been keeping a watchful eye out for replacements for the cafe chairs that live their now. These little chairs will later live around the game table in the family room.

Cafe Chair: "I'm just glad to be here. Please, pass the scones. I don't have arms."


Overstock revealed these to me today: Forza Twill Mid-Century Style Accent Chair (set of 2!) for $339.99

Ronnie Wire Base White Chair (set of 2!) $146.99

While I heart Eames I doubt I will ever be able to afford or have the guts to spend the dough on originals. Lucky ducky, like most designer items there are knock-offs out in the world that are just as lovely with an even lovelier price tag. With the exception knock-off designer handbags. Just don't do it.


Something Mid-Century is definitely in order to match the time period of both our house and our dining table. Remind me to share the story of how this one-of-a-kind table and dresser came to live with us last year.



What is your favorite seat in the house?
