Currently Loving: Director’s Chairs

I’ve found myself completely drawn to rooms using variations of the classic director’s chair lately.  Either in a casual canvas and wood or a more studious leather and metal.  There is something so comfortable and whimsical in the style as well as a great combination of angles to play off any decor style.  I particularly am fond of this look in beach houses…. Take a look at some examples and some you can buy yourself!

    I love this idea! I think they work well for those of us who like to switch things up now and again – all you have to do is swap out the fabric, which I imagine is a LOT cheaper and easier than reupholstering an entire chair!

    You post about director’s chairs and I lust after that purple/white (with a turquoise interior?) bag hanging from the 5th pic down. Any idea where it’s from?

    These might look good; but they are sooo uncomfortable to sit in.
    One could never relax in one!

    Whoa! The chair from Home Depot is really cute. Who knew!?

    Do you know where the desk in the 5th picture down is from??

    I agree with Diana. They look good but I can’t tell you how many times I have bumped the side of my leg trying to get out of them. Although I might be tempted to endure if it were a David Hicks :-).

    I love this. I have been looking for chairs for the head of our dining room table that aren’t too expensive for ages. I just ordered the cute black and white one from Home Depot! I hope it looks as cute in person as I am imagining it

    Love that striped one, although I’ve never found these chairs too comfortable… they’d definitely add some character to a room, though! :)

  9. I LOVE the idea of having one as an accent chair. The studier ones would be great for our breakfast nook table! Great idea. xo

    I have loved the idea using the directors chairs as dinning room seating ever since I saw them on Will & Grace (aging myself). It’s just such a cool look.

    My parents had a pair in the living room when I was a kid in the 70s–is white curly sheepskin. They were AMAZING. (there was also a wall of wood slats on a diagonal, funny to see that decade coming back.)

    I always love the transitional, beachy/casual vibe they impart. Great source photos!
