I was recently contacted by a representative
at One Kings Lane to help introduce
their new Home Decor Resource Guide.
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,
