A week ago Saturday I reached my breaking point and said, dammit, today we buy chairs! We hit up a store we hadn't heard of before (for my locals, it's Dania in Lombard) all because of a flier in the paper. Old fashioned marketing, but it worked! The whole store had a lot of classic, simple pieces, so we'll definitely be back. I actually think the name is a play on Danish style, because it really felt Scandinavian up in there. In a good way.
But let's meet the chairs! Here's a view from the front and a close up of the fabric, which will be super for hiding dirt. The color is called Sage:
They're a little less sha-zam! than we were originally going for, but in the end I think that was a good move because they let the table be the star. And really, with something that big, it kind of needs to have the spotlight.
In other dining room news, that console we just bought for the basement won't be going down there anytime soon. We think it'll be our new bar instead:
One more look at the chairs!
Okay, I'm done. For now.
How was your weekend?
