Vintage Chair Love with Chairish


I have to admit I have a thing for vintage pieces and their is just something sexy about vintage chairs that get me a little giddy(OK, not just a little, a lot). That perfect vintage chair can add character to any corner of your space without being overstated or understated. A beautiful chair can add just enough detail, to cozy up a space.  I am currently redoing to Windsor chairs in my home to add that unexpected element to my dining room and I am obsessed.

When shopping for vintage chairs there's a few things to keep in mind.

Curves & Details- Look for unique curves in the legs and back of chair, along with stencil details and edging. The more details the better! 

Structure-  Depending on the design, keep in mind you may have to put more money into the piece to make it more functional and comfortable, because of wear and tare over the years.

 Upholstery- If the piece is already covered, look at the cleanliness of the fabric, its probably something a little shampooing can fix, but if not look at the details of the piece to see how easy it would be to reupholster.

Size & Scale- Make sure you take measurements in order to know exactly what size chair you should go with.

Once you have looked at the main characteristics of the piece then you can start dreaming up where to place it in your home. I love adding a vintage piece to that empty corner that needs TLC.
