My chair dilemma

Monday, 23 January 2012

9 more sleeps to go. I don't think I can explain the excitement of having my own space, and to say goodbye to living out of boxes. Just a small example: I have had a dead battery on my iPad for 2 and a half months because I packed my charger in one of my 26 boxes (and obviously I don't know which one). O, the joys.

Either way, my real stress now is that I have bought too much clutter to comprehend with - but I'll deal with that problem next week. 

As I mentioned, I am getting some furniture custom-made which is really exciting. It's something I ummm'd and ahhh'd over for a while, but I really did want to invest in pieces that I could potentially keep forever - the one's that get better with age. At this stage it will probably mean me going without a few essentials for a while, but one step at a time I guess :)

My table idea

The dining table that I am getting made (see example of idea above) is going to have benches on the sides but will need two head chairs. So here are a few options I am dithering over.

Not exactly thrilling stuff, but if you happen to know of a particularly amazing looking chair/chair idea, let me know :)

  1. The blue chair would look stunning with the natural wood... but don't you think you need head chairs that can make more of a statement since the table and benches are already so sturdy and dominant? Something bigger and bolder perhaps? Something that contrasts with the wood, or maybe has a completely different texture? A cheap idea is to have an ottoman in a striking colour on each side.

  2. Hi Tanya - that's a good idea. I actually agree. Maybe chairs that I can get apholstered in a more bold/statement fabric. Right, I'm on the hunt :)
