Designing the New Digs: Chinese Chippendale Dining Chairs

Even with a townhouse full of furniture, there are still a few key items I have been looking for for the new of the being a set of dining chairs.  Ironically, the day we were moving, I got a call from a friend with a lead on some dining chairs for sale.  After texting me a photo I was thrilled to see they were one of my favorite vintage chairs and even more thrilled to discover they were selling for $50 each! Without hesitation I told her "I'll take them!"  Thank you Fran!
I plan on relacquering them and reupholstering the seats but they are going to look amazing in our new dining room!

Chinese Chippendale chairs are classic, yet very current.
Here are my chairs used in design layouts...

And here are some other variations of Chippendale Chairs

While it is a vintage style there are a couple current options on the market right now.
