Chair Lust

So, one of my current obsessions is a white or cream Barcelona Chair. I really want one (actually two). That chair is just plain awesome. Clean lines, timeless style, a little leather, a little chrome, modern and classic all at the same time, I love it.

I recently posted about my design dilemma here. I am trying to re-vamp my living room that was done by HGTV. I got so many great ideas from the blog world (THANK YOU!). I have been making small changes since then, but now I need chairs. Should I do two of the same, or two different? I kind of lean towards two of the same because I normally prefer symmetry.

Here are some that I like, including the gorgeous Barcelona chair that haunts my dreams. If anyone has a source for a good deal on these, let me know!


Barcelona Chair, DWR $5,027




Abigail Slipper Chair, William-Sonoma Home $995




Beatrice Slipper Chair, Madeline Stuart $ if I have to ask, I can't afford it





Louis XV Bodine Arm Chair, frenchdressing.com $895



I know I have a few different styles going on here, but that's how I roll. I have DMPD design multiple personality disorder. Deal.

That first one is perfection, if you ask me.

I went through the EXACT same thing. Something to consider: http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Modern-Barcelona-Chair-Ottoman-Leather-RETRO-IVORY_W0QQitemZ180269941795QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item180269941795&_trksid=p3286.m14.l1308

(sorry, I hit publish too quickly)

Anyhow.. I've seen the chair and ottoman (reproductions, mind you) on eBay for $500-$600. You can easily nab a pair for $1000 if from the same buyer.

I would suggest the ivory, as it is FABULOUS. Make sure to buy from someone who really talks about the quality of their pieces.

You can do it, girl!
