Bamboo Chairs

I was quite excited when I saw a set of bamboo chairs at the French Market. To me they are a timeless staple that can look quite lovely in almost any setting. I love the black with gold detailing, quite stunning.


As always when I come across a piece that inspires I start on a hunt to find the settings that I imagine. One of my all time favorite kitchens by Windsor Smith is one of my favorite examples for the use of bamboo chairs. A long table right in the middle of the kitchen flanked with a combination of chairs is perfection in my book.
Nate Berkus uses a pair in a living space. I adore how they can be used in both a feminine and masculine space.


This is most decidedly a feminine space with major a glamor factor. Designer Erin Gates definitely knows how to add a bit of wow.


I normally refrain from using much color, but this space has me singing a new tune. It feels quite sophisticated, but the color most definitely adds touches of fun.


This space is probably most like me, simple with classic pieces and a bit of rustic charm. I rather like understated design.


*As always shipping is available from The French Market.

If I could redecorate my breakfast nook, I would use bamboo chairs. I am not sure they would look good with my farm table.

I have a single bamboo chair that I adore. I'm constantly rotating it around my house because it makes such a statement in any room I put it in :)
So glad I found your blog. You've collected such lovely imagery.

We are so in love with bamboo chairs. In white, black, or even a sunny yellow it makes such a bold statement. Love all of these.
