We had the cushion made for this chair on the right, and it was delivered yesterday (with some cafe curtains that I don't have pics for yet, but they are really pretty).

We are about to put a chair like the one below with a skirt in brown linen in a client's house.

chair from Martha Stewart for Bernhardt

I have been pondering this parsons armchair below for my own living room. I could get it made with a skirt - or not. Can't decide...

chair from Ballard Designs

Chair as art...

This chair in my bedroom was painted by Atlanta artist Helen Durant


  1. Do folks sit in your red painted cherub chair? It reminds me of one in a consignment shop that got away.

  2. The painted chair is a little wobbly - you can sit in it, but it's mostly just pretty.

  3. My vote goes to non-skirt for the Parsons chair, unless you already have a lot of leggy chairs in your living room. I think the visual interest in the Parson's is in the straight lines and with a skirt you eliminate much of that.

  4. First cannot wait to see the whole room with the black and white chair; it looks fab! I second Capella on the no skirt parsons! Ballard has some really great reasonably priced options, don't they! I do however wish they would send you a decent size fabric swatch. Who can tell anything from those 1"by1" squares ;-)

  5. I love the wolves your aunt does. They somehow remind me of me, long legs, kind of wandering, alone ...
