We're going to use this table from Restoration Hardware:
And now I'm looking for Louis XVI style dining chairs to go with it. Restoration Hardware has some, but the husband doesn't like how weathered they are:
The thing about these huge catalog companies is, their prices are not that bad! I used to think Pottery Barn and the others were way overpriced, but as the economy has worsened, it seems their prices have come down. And now that I've been looking for chairs like this, I've found that most are $900+ whereas Pottery Barn and Restoration hardware can do them for $400-500. (In our case, the fabric selection is a problem, too, which is why I am still looking)
These came up from Wisteria in a Google search, but I was SO BUMMMED to see that they are sold out, seemingly for good. They were only $250. Sniff sniff.
And then there are these...gorgeous, no? But expensive (the first) and badly reviewed (the second).
If I had my way, they'd probably be like these, from Modani:
Haha ... Totally kidding. While I like this chair for some uses (my bedroom?), it clearly wouldn't fit with the traditional rug and farmhouse table.
So, my search continues. Please let me know if you know a source I missed!
In the meantime, here are some lovely rooms done in this style:
PPS -- for those of you who think it's weird to put an expensive oriental rug under a farm table, look at these and tell me if they change your mind.... Apartment Therapy also did an article about it, here.
Thanks for reading!!
