Napoleon III Chairs {the process}

It is no secret that I love me a beautiful Napolean III chair! The pictures below were taken months ago when I bought a couple of big hauls of “naps” on a buying trip back east and down south. With the arrival of our containers from Europe on the horizon (holding many more naps and lots of beautiful furniture on them) I thought I would show just why I love these beauties so very much! There are a variety of different shapes and styles originating from the Napoleon III period (late 19th century) all having similar characteristics. I am no expert on these chairs, I just know I love them. I have to admit, I almost love them completely stripped down, more than I do with fabric on them but I realize that is not very functional. I do however have two of them in my house with no fabric on them at all, I just like to look at them that way….their raw beauty is like no other. Take a look below to see how I find them, with their quirky vintage upholstery and horse hair falling out (yes, I said horse hair, it was commonly used as stuffing back in the day…so cool)! The very first thing we do is strip them down! Then, I spend way too much time trying to figure out what fabric looks best with each chair…then I head to my upholsterers with fabric and strict instructions on how I want each and every one to look….good thing he loves me so much, I can get super picky at times, but hey, the details matter!

Color Theory: Yellow

Hello! This week we are featuring our brand new Color Theory Look Book: YELLOW. Yellow can be paired with a surprising amount of colors and textures. Take a look at just some of the fun yellow pieces we featured from our collection. We think it’s a great color to use as a “pop” within a lounge vignette or display. Bright yellow dining chairs can give one of our farm tables a whole new look, or grab a handful of yellow pillows to liven up a neutral lounge vignette! Once again, the possibilities are truly endless!!
