Out to brunch with AZ and HW on Sunday. HW was asking for some chair advice for her dining area. Before we knew it AZ whipped out her Q (the Blackberry knock off that is so confusing and hard to use) and shows us a picture of chairs she loves. They were Chippendale-like chairs from West Elm.
Lately almost every furniture line has made its version of the classic Chippendale chair (classic chinoiserie to modern takes). Even with a million chairs out there like this…I don’t think this look will become cliche.
Not sure I love the Chippendale style but what I do like about it is the juxtaposition between detail and simplicity. My friend AM has a few beautiful white ones in her house and my friend AZ may be looking to put a few in her apartment.
Here are three Chippendale Chairs…from a variety of price points.
Baker Furniture Chinese Chippendale -$2128
I like the Jonathan Adler the best…old school Chippendale with a hip twist…although the West Elm is a Chippendale-style with clean lines and looks pretty good too.
I wonder what others think….some of my style savvy friends…hmmm…still trying to figure out my POV on these???
BTW, I like these chairs painted all white by the way…keeps it simple and modern…and easy to blend into any room
Do you even like this kind of chair…? Comments…..
