Let's talk CHAIRS

They're my favorite piece of furniture.  They're not as big of a commitment as the sofa, but they're just as necessary, and a lot more fun.

They serve a multitude of purposes in the home and are the quickest way to show off your personal style:

I'm a big fan of many mid-century-designed chairs...they feel like a work of art:

I also really like traditional chairs done in modern, fun fabrics:

Surrounding a table with mismatched chairs adds a cozy, personal touch:

If you're on a limited budget, you can still find some great options in every style:

To me, this last shot highlights a killer room and uses a great mix of chair styles.  I would love to look at this table everyday:
