Design-inspired adventures in lands near and far make for interesting stories and a life well-lived! I love travel to exotic places, and wandering off the beaten path to find hidden treasures. I look for unusual pieces of art and home furnishings spanning the 19th-21st centuries that have a history -- and when I am lucky, even a provenance. I believe we all feel most settled in our homes, large or small, when they’re filled with special things that feed our souls and create beautiful backdrops for the stories of our lives…
If you’re adventurous as I am, and one who shies away from the latest design fads in favor of timeless pieces with true style and spirit, I’d love for you to follow me here! And also, please look for my forthcoming sites on Instagram and Pinterest. Details found here just after the New Year. Thank you!
A strikingly graceful set of six solid mahogany dining chairs. 4 side chairs and 2 arm chairs. Each chair is very well-weighted and structurally sound. Exquisitely detailed, with a soft lustrous patina, the proportions are more eased than most Chippendale chairs, and the seating area is ample and comfortable. The details are beautifully crafted (cabriole legs, ball and claw feet, back splat and the finger grooves on the arms). The seat cushions are covered in a custom upholstery fabric from India with a very rich palette that complements the warm mahogany frames -- colored in muted brownish-plumb, raspberry, blues and greens, with traces of faint orange.
Detailed Dimensions: (38.5" floor to top of seat back; 19" tall floor to top-of-seat cushion; 21" deep front-to-back; 25" wide at widest part legs; 18" wide at rear of seat/chair.
