Take a Seat


is more 
to a chair
than just 
a seat.


Wish I had two of these from Century Furniture.

Vintage English Chair-- entry--needs new upholstery

Beautiful chair

So many styles.
So many options.

Some are built for comfort....
some are built for beauty.

Tres bon!


When you look around your home,
which chair is your favorite?

Chairs are my weakness for some reason I cannot stop buying them...mostly auctions...I have way too many. I think it all began in Out of Africa...those wonderful floral chairs in front of her huge stone fireplace...soft romantic fireglow..I think that's what hooked me in

I love all of yours!!! This post made me realize that I don't have many chairs. I have dining room chairs of course, and kitchen chairs, which are NOT comfortable. I have one chair in our sitting area where I SOMETIME watch TV. but that's it. I don't think I will be able to come to the party:(:(:( XO, Pinky

I have a chair fetish. It's a problem. It's good to know I am not alone!
The Rembrandt I was alluding to was the "Storm On the Sea of Galilee", as shown in your post. Sorry for the confusion!
Not loving the rain we are experiencing lately, but then again, I think I am just in a mood to complain! LOL!
Hoping you are well...
