still working on finalizing the styles for the chair line. there are just so many subtle differences and i need to narrow.

i have a chair maker who can create any frame we can imagine.

i’ve been going through the most universal styles, but there are a few that i haven’t seen around much and i’d love to revive.

trouble is i’m working with guys who may not think feminine furniture is as delicious a i (maybe we? do).

    I can see why you are having difficulty narrowing down chair and chaise styles. I love them all too!

    Love the first pink, the blue/green bergeres and the next two, and the cane! Green velvet settee is a favorite look. The cane-backed chair is wonderful (have been eyeing one in Paris) and yes, I’ve been looking for a vanity chair. Love two-tone upholstery and the carved chair, it’s gorgeous! And I love slipper chairs and tufts. I trust all of your instincts.

      Hi Susanne, that was actually really helpful, noting the two-toned, the velvet fabric etc. I’m leaning toward making this a fun but traditional line using gorgeous fabric in new ways and you just helped me see that vision more clearly so i thank you!

    Hi Liz, good to know, is it tufts in general or just on slipper chairs? I think we all need a daybed, don’t we!?

    I adore cane. I have some cane pieces, a love seat and chair in cane. The only problem is that we really don’t sit in them often because their not very loungy. Love your line, especially the chaise.

    I like cane for dining chairs (with cushioned seats!). I have a couple of lounge chairs that are very cool (style-wise and temp-wise) with woven rope that resembles cane. OK when it’s very hot and you don’t want to stick to the seat (they are from Africa) but otherwise not very comfy.
    It’s important for the chairs to be comfortable for their purpose. If the purpose is to sit correctly, like at a table, the seat is higher and the back is different from a chair for reading or watching TV–in which case I like to be able to put my feet up.

    I’ve been lusting after the two chairs and ottoman sets that fit together. But antique sets are far beyond my means. I’d love to see what you come up with! I love the shape of the caned chairs but it would be great to see the frames filled with something sturdier / more comfortable.

    love them all. giving great ideas for my new country French home that I have to completely redo/decorate. love the chairs and ottoman and club chairs for my new “hearth room” want warmth and comfort with the stone fireplace on the side of the kitchen.
