Just a Girl in Search of a Red Bamboo Chair

Just a Girl in Search of a Red Bamboo Chair


Ever since I first laid eyes on Michelle Adams’ living room in an old issue of Domino Magazine, I just knew I would have a red bamboo chair in my life some day:


When I started to decorate my new dining room, I finally decided it was time to scratch that itch and get some red bamboo chairs already.

In general, they are hard to find and so expensive.  The Jonathan Adler Chippendale Side Chair, as an example, is $650!

I ended up finding these wonderful chairs on Charlotte & Ivy for much less than that.  I love the chair – great lines – but it was driving me crazy.  The red just wasn’t VA-VOOM enough!!

So, of course, I spraypainted those suckers.  A bright ferrari red.

I got that fabulous “distressed gray washed” pedestal table on sale at Ballard Designs, by the way, and I just love it.

I still need drapes!  And should I re-cover those seats??

So much more to do, but I love that this room is finally starting to come together…

    Love those chairs – I think I’d love a bright orange! And I’ve had great luck with Ballard…I got most of my throw pillows there…the indoor/outdoor fabrics clean off so well if you have kids!
