older the better.

i can fully appreciate and even love modern design pieces, but i guess i’m mostly drawn to a mix of old and new, and i especially have an odd affection for vintage-inspired chairs and stools. they seem to hold a sense of history for me, and usually some unique type of design where Beauty meets function. i love this collection of chairs above and below — albeit really just vehicles to display these wonderful woodland vintage-looking landscape pillows from chocolate creative’s — a joy to behold nonetheless. here’s a few more long-treasured stools and chairs.

clockwise, l to r: Thé Broc stool from Bord de Scène; vintage stools via taupe and company and loppelilla and le repere des belettes.

drawing study chair from anthropologie.

vintage bamboo stool from ethanollie.

three-seater theater bench from rockett st. george and lovely vintage stool via llamas’ valley.

bentwood chairs via pia ulin photography; Franco Albini Style Rattan Stool from gallivanting girls; black stool via llamas’ valley; medallion etched chair from anthropologie.

vintage schoolhouse chairs from greenhouse design studio; truck furniture’s sutto chair; and loppelilla.

    These chair are lovely – do you have idea if it is possible to rent chairs similar to the style above for an event? If so, where? Thx. :)

  2. Love the top image. I’m totally with you on old chairs and the sense of history and character they have. I like the mix of old and new too though so all the old stuff looks fresh and chic instead of broken down and depressing :)

    OMG I so much love the drawing chair I want it now!! I have been collecting chairs for years, chairs, cushions and lamps are my fav things, i have so many…The ones in the photo are very cheap, some found on the street near me, some bought in antiques markets and in shops. I am currently looking for a big pine country style table for my living room, where i will have all my chairs to sit my friends for dinners and craft parties. You are invited so when in London next time give us a bell and come and join more bloggers and designer , we are a group that keeps growing more and more… Love seeing my products in Sfgirlbybay, always gives me a rush of happiness!
