I knew right away that I would choose one of the two Louis XVI style chairs I purchased via Craigslist several years ago. I not only love the style of these chairs, but I love that they came from an old restaurant in a city we used to live in. We move a lot, so having items from each location is so special for us.
The chairs (they came as a pair) have since gotten some new black/white striped fabric and a new paint job, which was fun for me to do myself. The black/white stripe is always a classic choice and very much my style. This chair hangs out in our great room, and people actually do sit in it! I love a statement chair that has great bones, but is easy to recover and inviting to sit in.
