    Hello. Thank you for your inquiry. We purchased these chair for our client from HD Buttercup in San Francisco. However, I believe they have been discontinued.

Exploring further. Consider trying one or more of these ideas to deepen your color awareness.Decorate with yellow in a small way by placing bud vases with yellow blooms in different rooms.Pick up a bag of lemons at the market and display them in a bowl on your table.Snap pictures of everything yellow you see for a day (or a week), then look them over. You could even put them into a small album.Browse a fabric store or design center, where fabrics are often organized by color, and go to the yellow section; notice which you are most drawn to, and take some pictures if you want as a reminder.Visit a paint store and bring home some yellow paint swatches.Tell us: How do you feel about the color yellow?More Meaning of Color: Red | OrangeSee guides to using yellow in every room

4. Rich and RefinedDesigner: Andrew GathLocation: San FranciscoSize: About 175 square feet (16.2 square meters)Year built: 2001Plan of attack: “The dining room was a blank canvas when we started,” interior designer Andrew Gath says. “First we selected the dining table. We wanted something very warm for the finish to continue the accent of warm tones throughout the house, but we also wanted something very modern. The Room & Board Corbett dining table in walnut was perfect. “We then we selected the head chairs. We wanted something that had a feeling of California 1970s modern. We found the pair of leather patchwork chairs at HD Buttercup in San Francisco. We then wanted to find a complementary guest chair that was small-scale and open. The Risom side chair was perfect. I love the khaki green straps in contrast with the ebonized frame. It adds a hint of color while still remaining fairly neutral. “The collage by Matt Phillips was a piece we saw while shopping for art in Seattle. This is one of the first pieces you see when you walk into the open living space. We wanted a bold pop to contrast against the fairly neutral furniture. My client and I both fell in love with this piece and knew it was perfect for the dining room. “The final additions were the Pipe candelabra from BoConcept and the tree in the corner — the two perfect pieces to finish the space off by adding visual texture and sculptural elements.”Why the design works: “The space is like a gallery with its stark white walls and concrete floor. It really helps set off any direction you want to go. This solution works well because every piece in the space is doing its part to bring the design together: the table to bring in warmth and anchor the space; the head chairs to add a masculine, warm vintage element; the guest chairs adding a soft hint of color. The art is the showstopper, and the plant and candelabra add organic and industrial elements to round off the space.”What wasn’t working: “Track lighting is hideous, but we had no choice but to work with it. It was my goal to have the furniture, art and accessories stop your eye. Before the installation, all I could focus on was the track lighting, and now it is inconspicuous, despite being out in the open.”What goes on here: “This dining room is meant to function less as a formal eating space for the client and more as a design element to the open living space, as well as to serve as a surface for my client’s fun summer gatherings and provide a place for him to have his morning coffee and read the paper.”Who uses it: “My client is a young, busy professional. He has a very full social and travel schedule. He is a child of the 1980s and ’90s and loves to play video games, read, watch films and travel.”Designer secret: “I love a space with a mix of design elements, but it’s key to balance it out and to edit. Each piece should be thoughtfully curated.”“Uh-oh” moment: “The space between the legs on the dining table is very tight. We needed to find a smaller-scale chair to fit the space to accommodate two people on either side. My client is very tall, practically built like a football player, so we were challenged with finding a chair small enough for the space that wouldn’t make him feel like a giant in a tiny chair.”Splurges and savings: “The furniture is midpriced, which allowed him to splurge on the collage above the table.”Take-away: “A space with only six different pieces, including accessories, can really make an impact, and although heavily edited, the space can feel full, warm and cozy.”The nitty-gritty: Dining table: Corbett in walnut, Room & Board; head chairs: Lewis in black leather, HD Buttercup; guest chairs: Risom side chairs in khaki with ebonized frame, Knoll; art: Wave, by Matt Phillips, Kate Alkarni Gallery; Industrial 6-armed candelabra: BoConcept; plant: Dracaena marginata, Tom Evanoff GardeningTeam: Philip Storey of Redhill Painting See more of this home
