My Favorite Statement Chairs

I was recently contacted by a representative 
at One Kings Lane to help introduce 
I Adore OKL and have shopped there for everything 
from dishes to furniture, 
so of course I was thrilled to help!  
They wanted me to do a write up on 
my favorite Statement Chair in my home.  
Hmmmm, that was harder than I thought. 
So what the heck, I've included many of my favorite chairs 
for you all to look at. 
What exactly IS a Statement Chair?  
Well, that's where the Resource Guide 
at One Kings Lane comes into play.  
You can go there and read some really great articles on 
design, styles and periods of furniture.  
 They have a great article on Statement Chairs  
and explain that they are just that: 
Chairs that make a statement!  
You remember Delilah pictured above?  
I found her at an Estate Sale for $55.00.  
Why does Delilah fit the bill as a Statement Chair?  
She adds just the right pop of pattern in an otherwise patternless muted bedroom.  
Delilah pulls everything together 
to make just the statement I was after.  
If you looked this chair up in the Resource Center 
you would find that it is a classic example of a 
Queen Anne Style Wing Chair. 
Here is another of my favorite Statement Chairs. 
I had so much fun choosing all of the fabrics to go in my 
Hearth Room and this chair was my pride and joy. 
What I love about this chair is that it makes 
a statement coming AND going.  
I absolutely love French Country style!  
The rush seat in this chair makes it a little less 
formal and more country.  
The last statement chair that I am sharing 
is one that got a makeover last year.  
Here is what it looked like "before" the makeover.  
Before I painted this chair it had more of a 
formal Empire Style to it.  
If you look in the Resource Guide under Empire Style in 
England: Regency Stye you will see almost this exact chair.  
After it's makeover it blends more into my Frenchy style.  

Head on over to One King's Lane  
 and check out their Resource Guide.  
 Just don't blame me if you get lost in the site for a couple of 
hours like I did.  

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves

The only statement our chairs make is, "Get me to the college dorm where I belong!" :-) I am SO ready to start looking for new pieces to bring into our home!!! Ramo, as usual, is dragging his feet. I NEED new furniture!!!!!! Your have some really extraordinary chairs, and I love your hearth room! That's a sexy little ottoman in your master bedroom, too. It really works well with the sofa and Delilah! :-)
