colorful kitchen chairs

The chairs we sit in to eat in at home need to be comfortable and easy to move around. Having said that, they can and should also be pretty! We like to challenge ourselves to come up with unique pairings for tables and chairs that are original and fun. Whenever we see an inspirational combination, we stop and admire. It looks easier than it is (images below: left: source unknown , right: House Beautiful).
A chair that is a color can look fantastic, especially if sits at a white table. This concept of using chairs to impart color into kitchens seems to be catching on. It must have something to do with the fact that modern kitchens can be very industrial looking-especially with all of the stainless steel appliances.
Here’s a round-up of our favorite kitchen chairs at the moment. All of them come in multiple colors, we just highlighted the colors we like best. Are you feeling inspired?

    Tilton-Fenwick has an inquiry about the De Gournay wallpaper from one of your projects featured in a post on 2/14/2011. I sent them a comment identifying the source.

    By the way, how is the new apt in the city coming along? I’d love to see some photos after all the fabric/furniture choices have been made.
