Classic Obsession: The Rope Chair

I love chairs. I have a tendency to want to buy cool vintage chairs all the time.  Sometimes I have to be physically restrained from just “snapping up” a cool little chair at every turn.  I DO have limited basement storage and no need for any more chairs.  However, chairs are such a great way to convey your style and add some interest into an otherwise bland space. They are little works of art! Especially when they are unique and/ or vintage! I currently am kind of obsessing over vintage Hans Wegner rope chairs.  The texture and modern lines are so appealing. I do need a chair for a corner in my master so maybe…

Victoria Hagan’s Nantucket house has two of them that break up all the upholstery in her living room.

Another one in a more modern setting.

I just love the texture it adds!

Chairs like this can add a little warmth to otherwise sleek spaces.

Here are some vintage sets (very expensive real Wegners and more affordable replica ones as well) along with some new chairs that give off a similar feel!
