A few weeks ago I shuffled the chairs around the dining table leaving my beloved vintage ones homeless. Or at least table-less. But only temporarily. They’ve been displaced to my new favorite seating area in the house – what shall now be known as the living room. Along with an old cage-turned-coffee-table, that we’ve had for years, in a similar green hue.
We’ve been working on carving out different areas in our great room to make it most functional. Using furniture as a divider, or floating it, seems to be working with our current layout. (But that doesn’t mean I won’t rearrange again soon.)
I’m happy with how the space under the bay window has evolved. This cozy little sitting area is saturated in deep colors from the walnut & mohair Ward Bennett chairs to the over-dyed blue and orange kilim rug. The space can handle all of the dark, dramatic color thanks to all of the natural light that pours in.
The “living room” is conveniently adjacent to the bar where we store glassware & mix cocktails
…beside the captain. The count is getting pretty high on sea captains around here. This is Gorton.
So that is the fate of the chairs. I know you were worried about them. They are indeed one of my favorite vintage finds ever.
