Every yard sale, antique store and furniture store holds at least one chair that catches my eye. I have been forbidden to buy any more chairs.
Love my Brno chairs.
The Corbu chair by architect Le Corbusier is a post modern icon and blends well with most decorating styles.
The Barcelona chair designed by architect Mies ver der Rohe is another mid-century must have. Most people that know me would be surprised to see that I chose this chair as a favorite, being a bit of a traditionalist and the fact that I don't own any...yet. They are especially pleasing in pairs.
This one from is Anthropologie . Traditional design paired with anything unexpected really speaks to me.
This one from Downtown was just too groovy to be left out.
This is an example of a crapaud. Its funny name, pronounced crapo, means frog in French. There are other chairs with similar lines and the same name.
I almost bought one of those two from CB2 for my family room but my husband hates armless chairs.
A real favorite is this antique French child's chair that has been enjoyed by four generations of children in my family and no one knows how many others.
Here are a few more of mine.
