I was recently contacted by One Kings Lane to feature my style profile for their Chair Style Guide. I jumped at the chance because One Kings Lane is pretty awesome!
If you look at the guide, there is a chart and you start by picking your style: Classic or Modern. Next, you'll choose which material you prefer. Then, you'll choose another style among the list, which will then lead you to pictures of chairs. It's a great way to help you choose a chair if you're on the hunt for one!
It just so happens that last year, I was on the hunt for dining room chairs. I really wish I would have seen this guide first because that would have saved me lots of time! Looking at the guide now, I see the exact chair that I was after: the Marais Chair! I consider my style to be "rustic industrial" and this fits the bill! (They are more "industrial" than "rustic", but I'm going to make a rustic-style dining table that these will look great with).
Here's what I ended up getting.
I got 4 chairs to use with the dining table I'm going to make. They're not the most comfortable chairs, but they're not uncomfortable either. I figure I can make or buy some cushions if I want to later. But, I love how they look. And they will be easy to clean too! I really need to make that table soon. It's on my project list for this year.
Have you used the Chair Style Guide? What kind of chairs do you have/like?
