Dang! Another fabulous deal!! I love the idea of the patterns, and I totally dig that red swatch, second from the right! But I have no doubt that whatever you pick will look awesome.

Blogger has been a pain in the ass! Have you been loosing comments too?

This is one of those chairs that looks equally good in solids and patterns. So for a mere 7 clam investment, I would do whatever your heart desires, knowing that it can have another life down the road!

You lie!

Yep Sal gal...7 count 'em 7 clams.

I originally saw them for 20 bucks and they were having a 25 percent off sale. But it was after a long day...and I couldn't fit them in my car ( so I said if they are there next week then it was meant to be)

Well fast forward TWO weeks...because I completely forgot about them... NOW they are marked down to 11 clams each. PLUS an addition 25 percent off. Less than a starbucks coffee!!

I shoved them in the car....and here they be.

Funny eh?

Go for it...Make them blend with the orange baby you did that every one LOVED

SarahWhite said...

Great story Linda...I'm always amazed at what is passed by. And so many people probably looked at them and thought..."what awful chairs!" I didn't chime in on what I thought you should do with them...although I adore the white with the Medic pillow...for you...always LOVE a bright contrast. Something Big Black (dog) would look good sitting in front of.

Any of your choices will look great on those cool chairs!

What a score... 7 bucks? Really?

7 flipping dollars???? AYKM? Steal. I am partial to the white but I am frozen to make decisions now that I am blogging. So scared I will see something the next day and want to change. Pillows are easier to swap out. Just saying.....that's me.

I can't believe the fab things you FIND at such a BARGAIN!

these chairs rock

Arrrgh, I don't KNOW!

I love the idea of big bold color -- with or without pattern. I love the idea of barely textured neutral solids. And I love the idea of subtle tone-on-tone color/pattern.

Where are these going and with what will they be co-habitating? I think I need (visual) context, baby.

And then of course alot depends on your tolerance for pattern mixing in the same room. Some like the eye to have big old chunks of resting place.

[You may want to check Tricia Guild books for fearless color + pattern in one place.]

Can't wait to see where ya end up.

you must be the best thrifter E.V.E.R! Everytime you show a find I'm floored.

Love the bright fabric ideas
