window shopping: blue dining chairs

By: admin

As my Style Statement on the last page of the hot-off-the-press May issue of Style at Home (our Colour special!), I chose an iconic Danish dining chair that's been reimagined in a totally trendy colourway: a rich, cerulean blue. It didn't strike me until afterwards that it's actually rather rare to come across dining chairs in this hue. Sage greens, yellows and saturated reds, yes; but true-blues (I'm not counting those anemic pale-grey-blues) are only starting to rock the dining room. Let's take a look at five of my fave options on the market...

I positively adore Camilla House's bentwood-style bistro chair. In vintage French blue, the Camargue chair's deliciously authentic looking cane seat and slightly distressed paint conspire to give it that instant heirloom appeal.

Joining the Crate and Barrel lineup this spring is the beechwood  Village side chair in this lovely Azzuro Blue option. Love the vertical slat back -- relaxed country, without being corn-cob.

Venturing into style-for-less territory -- which in this case, happens to border industrial chic -- we've got IKEA's Jules visitor chair; an absolute steal at only $50 a pop.

Pretty in PVC! Another fab find from Camilla House Imports -- the Pop Louis chair has contemporary fun with a traditional frame.

And I know I said this bit of Window Shopping would only deal with rich, saturated blues, but Bungalow 5's Chloe armchair in light blue lacquer was just too pretty to exclude... The chic Chinoiserie frame looks positively dreamy in that shade of blue.
