Dear LORD somebody buy these
Cheap, Chic and Vintage. PBR completes me. One of the few sites I check everyday.
My mom knows me so well. While thrifting, she picked up “The New Book of Chinese Lattice Designs” for me. It’s filled with 372 designs that were sketched from windows all over West China during the first half of the 20th century. I just adore these intricate patterns. I’d love to turn them into fabrics, wallpapers, stencils or O’verlays. I think their complex geometric nature is both modern and ornate and blends so well with many other patterns. Here are just a few of my faves… (sorry I’m hoarding the rest for myself.)
Do you like them too, or are they too “ethnic” for your taste?
Lately I can’t seem to get enough of bamboo and rattan accent chairs. Painted, or natural, intricate or more streamlined, I just love the personality they bring to a room! They really seem to work in any type of interior; traditional, bohemian, modern, or any mix in between. Right now I’m using a different variety in 3 different home projects.
Here are a few favorites, including “my” chairs.
2. 2. Vintage Rattan Chair, freshly painted and upholstered by Chairloom
3. 3. Vintage Ebonized Bamboo Barrel Back Chairs
6. 6. Indochine High Back Chair, Red Egg
I like these chairs as accents in living rooms because they are often small framed and fit nicely in tight spaces. Perhaps they aren’t your everyday chairs, but they are great for extra seating. I also like them for that “unexpected” element. Here are a few favorite rooms featuring these fellas.
My favorite neutral living room ever:
Amazing flanking a console:
A perfect accessory in a smaller bedroom:
Gorgeous in it’s natural form:
A lovely surprise in an otherwise stately space:
Jonathan Adler made the faux bamboo chair insanely popular for the dining room, but what do you think of these types of chairs in other rooms in the house?
