What Houzz contributors are saying:

I love the way these colors work together, and the way the stack comes together to form one silhouette.
Becky Harris added this to From the Print Files: Fabulous Florals
This charismatic pair of chairs shows that granny's fabrics can be fun and chic.
Becky Harris added this to Your First Apartment: Where to Begin?
Don't discount grandma's crazy stuff. Check out how cheerful and fun these chairs are!
You'd find a cozy reading area...surrounded with lots of great books.
Kathryn added this to Guide to Granny Chic Decor
These great vintage chairs and ceramics could easily have come out of grandma's home. Their role in this colorful room gives them fresh new life.
Lisa Frederick added this to Color Breezes Into Cottage Style
The approach: collected appeal. The cottage look is about layering, grouping together collected items, antiques and less-than-perfect finds to create a sense of comfort. The primary color palette in this living area is anything but typical for this style, yet the artful clutter radiates warmth and welcome in exactly the way that classic cottage interiors do.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to The Perks and Perils of Reupholstering Old Furniture
Older pieces also offer a different kind of seating comfort than the squishy, deep style that is popular right now. It can, for example, be very difficult to find classic upright wing chairs like these in furniture stores. In my years as a retail designer, I would often surreptitiously steer clients to thrift stores when older family members wanted a nice, straight-back upholstered chair that was both firm and easy to get in and out of.
