After spending last week shopping the 10 million square feet of showrooms at the Fall 2011 High Point Furniture Market, the soles of my tennis shoes are still smoking! Here are my personal picks for favorite chairs from the largest home furnishings trade show in the world. All are either available through your interior designer, or you can check the manufacturers' websites for retailers near you.
I found this beauty in the Vanguard showroom and thought it was one of the most elegant chairs at the entire show. The shape is just to-die-for and it is super comfortable. The large-scale pattern in chocolate, amethyst and yellow is a show-stopper!
Bolier is one of my favorite furniture lines. Their graceful, pieces are perfect for clean-lined, contemporary spaces. Many of their pieces are quite minimal, but never boring, as you can see from the detail on this chair back.
I lean toward contemporary pieces so am normally not into wingbacks, but I loved this updated one at American Leather. The lines, color, and large-scale pattern all work for a more transitional or contemporary space.
This all-wood dining chair from Copeland has such a beautiful shape; it looks like it might just take flight. It works well with either mid-century modern or contemporary spaces. For a non-upholstered chair it was surprisingly comfortable.
