Style news: Top chair picks
Barbara Barry for Baker Simpson Slipper
“Leave it to style maven Barbara Barry to give the boxy slipper chair a few nips, tucks and curves to create a perch as elegant as the designer herself.” Studio B, $3,675.
“G. Romano is a great Canadian company that delivers chic, clean-lined furniture. I love this chair for its sleek arms and this juicy Mid-Century Mod fabric.” Romano, $1,100.
“The white-on-white finish and supermodel-skinny tapered metal legs make this beauty a best in show.” South Hill Home $3,605.
Vanguard Thom Filicia Collection Salt Springs
“Leather chairs aren’t just for man caves. With its trim proportions, contrast
piping, and colour right off the fall fashion runways, this chair is as stylish as any ‘it’ handbag.” Domaine Fine Furnishings & Design, $2,285.
“The spool chair was the chair style of the show. It was everywhere, but this one was a standout for its beach house vibe – love the relaxed feel of the knife-edge back cushion.” Lillian August Fine Furniture for Hickory White $2,060 US.
Hickory Chair Boyd
“Hickory Chair celebrated its 100th anniversary this year by looking to its archives for inspiration. Elements like the high camelback and square capped arms were borrowed from a 1930s piece.” Cocoon, from $2,245.
Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Felix
“Swivel chairs are big news, since they offer a flexibility that’s ideal for media rooms, open-concept spaces and baby’s rooms alike.” Elte, from $1,475.
