The Chippendales

 Before you get too excited, I'm talking about these Chippendales...

....not these!

I own 2 bamboo Chippendale style chairs which I love. I use the word "own" quite loosely here. Let's just say they are on long term loan from my sister and I hope she doesn't read this post, because it might remind her that I still have them!


They have spent time in my bedroom, on my patio, at my desk and are currently at either end of my breakfast table. That's the appeal of these chairs, they really are very versatile. Mine have stayed neutral in colour, but they definitely lend themselves to being painted black, white or the brightest of shades. Here are some lovely examples.....




Because you have so patiently scrolled through this post, I will reward you with another pic of the other Chippendales!

Till next time
