[dining chair reconnaissance]

Dan's friend bought his first home.
He was over the other night and asked if I would accompany him furniture shopping.
What girl would say no to that!

With a little time on my hands the other day I began investigating looks for his dining space - because I'm pretty sure most men really care about what their dining space looks like.
My first thought - An industrial style with Tolix chairs paired with a lovely wooden dining table to add a little warmth.
They come in so many delicious colours too!

Or there's the more organic look of the mid-century classic Wishbone chair.

And finally the Eames Shell chair.
I gather he's unlikely to select an array of colours but isn't it a gorgeously unique setting!

This shopping for others could get dangerous.
I'm looking at our own dining space and dreaming of a facelift.
I'm sure Dan wouldn't notice if a few lovely duck-egg blue powder-coated tolix chairs were to magically replace of our white wooden cross-backs!


  1. All awesome choices - love the mix of different colours with the Eames chairs. And really like the bright yellow Wishbone chair.

  2. These chairs are too lovely. It's so hard to choose. Have a beautiful day, Kellie xx


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments.
They truly make my day!
