I believe this was put together with thrift store finds and donations for the most part. Sorry I don't have more information for you.

Hi lbizzle,

I've got a sneaking suspicion those are thrift store castoffs that have been remade with a few coats of paint and reupholstered seats. Go for a similar look by scouring Craigslist etc and picking a lipstick-red paint to revitalize your set. Best of luck!

Do you recall the red paint colour?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

4. Paint gives things a whole new life. Go bold! Also, note that the walls here are sporting empty frames.
Becky Harris added this to Splashes of Red
Red is superb with light grays...
If a red light fixture is too much, you may want to consider red dining chairs. Set against gray walls, they really amp up a room's energy. Should red chair frames be too bold, try a textural red fabric on the cushions. Solids to consider are velvet, boucle, mohair or raffia; rich texture is key.
Here is another diagonal composition that appears symmetrical, belying the actual nature of the room. While the mirror and frames are not identical, the former's reflection of the latter strengthens the apparent symmetry.
