Faux Bamboo Chippendale Chair

This well-known chair has made it rounds in blogosphere and I just knew it would be a matter of time when this little beauty would make its way to my home!
Having already planned to be in NY this past weekend and then receiving a tip from Camila's very resourceful blog last week, I made sure I squeezed in a stop in Poughkeepsie to pick up the $30 chair.  I am surprised another blogger didn't beat me to it!!  Anyway, now for my favorite part, the inspiration!

  1. Lucky you Fran! I'm so jealous. There is a chair like this in the showroom at market, but the price is $250. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  4. I love that you swooped in and got this chair! Camila highlighted some very cool things at that Poughkeepsie store that I was tempted to make the road trip myself! Where are you planning to use the chair?

  5. Great find and I can't wait to see what you do with it!! I love when they are painted really rich bold colours and have great fabric on the seat- go figure. I can't remember where I saw it but someone did a chair like that in a bright yellow and used Manuel Canovas pagoda fabric for the chair- soooo amazing!

  7. I am so jealous you got that chair! I so wish I lived closer so I could have gone by that store after Camila posted about it! But alas...Atlanta is just too far of a drive. Great find and I can't wait to see what you do with it!

  8. Amazing! So happy you picked it up! I tried convincing my husband that a trip to pick it up would be so worth it, but a 5 round trip to get the chair didn't have my husband jumping for joy.

    Can't wait to see what you do with it!
