Choosing Deck Chairs

2nd May 2011

As you all know, I am the proud renter of a fabulous new apartment in Greenwich. I have a lovely little patio overlooking the water, which excites me beyond belief.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect deck chair. I don’t have that much space, so it’s essential that the chairs I selected were small, comfy and practical, but stylish at the same time (I wouldn’t have it any other way!). I also didn’t want to pay a small fortune, which made things difficult. As you’ll see, I found LOTS of amazing EXPENSIVE options and a few great, affordable options. Here were my favorite finds…

Janus et Cie Forest Chair, UNGODLY expensive

Beach Chair by Gallant & Jones, $215

Applaro Chair from IKEA, $59

Can you guess which one I chose?

Before and After – Chairloom

8th February 2011

As soon as I signed the lease on my new apartment (I moved in last weekend Рhooray!), I started looking for some new pieces of furniture. I found the chair below on Chairloom and immediately fell in love. I had been looking for a red chinoiserie chair, but I thought this black bamboo had great potential.

After days of debate I finally picked out a great fabric from Schumacher (High Voltage in Berry) and had Chairloom recover it. I am so thrilled with the outcome! It looks fabulous in my living room! Many thanks to Molly at Chairloom!
