My Wish List - Chairs!

Hello everyone, hope you had a good weekend. Mine was good, but they are never long enough, are they?

My 30th birthday is right around the corner (on Sunday!) so I thought it would be fun to post my all-time favorite furniture and accessories this week, my dream wish list if you will. Up first are chairs!

While a perfect room formula to me is a mix of furniture styles and eras, it seems that nearly all of my favorite chairs are mid-century modern. Simply having one of these in a room makes such a statement.

1. The Barcelona chair by Mies van der Rohe:


I swear I will own a white one of these one day! My office has two black ones right by the entrance, so I look at them everyday yet my love for them does not end. I can't get enough of the tufting and the "X" legs.

2. Bertoia side chairs by Harry Bertoia:

I adore these chairs. It's too bad my husband hates them and thinks they look like "picnic" chairs (in his words). Still, maybe we can compromise and put them in a covered patio or sunroom one day!

3. The Arne Jacobsen Egg Chair:



I'll admit these chairs were not love at first sight for me, but lately I've been seeing them in such fun colors and fabrics that now I want one! They make such a statement.

4. Faux Bamboo Chippendale Chairs


These chairs are great not only for their looks but also for their versatility. They would work as dining chairs, a desk chair, in an entryway, or next to a sofa or bed. They come in so many colors, and you can also have fun uphostering the cushion in so many different fabrics!



You just can't go wrong with a chair that visually dissapears anywhere you put it! It literally goes with everything and makes the space instantly more chic!

6. The Eames Rocker, by Charles & Ray Eames:


I am so excited because I actually am getting one of these! I got a super discount through work, so in a few short weeks I will have my very own rocker! It will probably go in my living room for now, but one day I see it looking really cute in a nursery...

I'll be back tomorrow with my favorite tables!

Happy birthday a few days early. Don't you just love getting new furniture? That rocker will be a nice addition.

Happy birthday! One day I will be the happy owner of a Charles Eames chair. But I also love the Mole chair from Brazilian designer Sergio Rodrigues (it is from 1957!). Can't wait to seeing the tables! My favorite one: Saarinen Tulipe!
