spotlight: cesca chairs

So I have a thing for chairs. Honestly. I've replaced our entire dining set once [each time I had two chair species co-mingling] and am constantly looking at new suitors. Right now I'm jonesing for a slipper chair for our master bedroom. Or anything really as long as it's cheap. I'm always looking for new to me styles and I'm finding that the mid century modern lines really speak to me. 

It started when I found these cesca chairs at a thrift store. It took some serious googling to figure out what they were called but I love them so.

We replaced plain 'x' backed chairs and captain chairs for the cesca chairs and eames shell chairs on the end from Overstock.

There's this crazy chair in our living room that I adore. The lines are just plain mean in all good ways and the cats love the furry bottom. Not the most functional piece or realistic by any means but we adore it.

And this fella. We scored four of these scooped back pieces off of Craigslist that have a bamboo look. I couldn't resist spray painting them. Can't wait for spring to arrive so I can showcase them!

If you're a chair whore like myself you can check out One King's Lane guide. It's not all inclusive by any means and I'd love to see it expanded or in quiz form [like this one] but it's a start if you're clueless to chair styles. And I figure it's a step above me getting all educational on you and whipping out my mad powerpoint skills. Do you have something you can't get enough of like how I am with chairs? What's your weakness?

***Although I was contacted by One King's Lane to feature their chair guide, all thoughts and bad jokes are purely mine.***


  1. Love chairs too and have been on the hunt for some new ones.
    That color is so good. Love!

  2. chairs are the best. I'm on the hunt for something perfect and unusual for my bathroom right now. Love that chair in your living room! I think I have to go look at Craigslist RIGHT NOW ;)

  3. I too am a chair whore. Seriously. I LOVE chairs. I am envious of those chairs!

  4. I'm such a chair whore too. I hoard them and am constantly wanting more. I wanted those leather chairs Emily Henderson posted the other day, but I didn't want 6 of them. I can't part with my Eames or my bentwood, and there's no reason to have 3 dining tables in a house!

  5. I love chairs of all different kinds - but comfy ones are best! Or white ones. I really am into white right now.

  6. All great chairs. Love the combination of chairs in your dining room especially. :)

  7. Those chairs are amazing. I totally love them. It looks great with the white chair at the end of the table.


Drop me a line! I monitor all comments just to make sure we keep it fun and light :]
