Sneak Peek: My New Tufted Dining Chairs

 

A couple of months ago, I finally pulled the trigger on the dining chairs from Overstock that I posted about back in December. I knew I had to have them when I ordered what I thought were very similar chairs from the Weirs Outlet for a client's dining room... I "conveniently" had her chairs delivered to my house before installation, and tested them out around my own dining room table...I was immediately sold! I actually wasn't even aware that they were the EXACT same chair until my Overstock chairs were delivered...I just figured they were very similar.

A few months later, after seeing this particular chair all over blogland, I knew I needed to act fast as I suspected they would sell out in no time. I was right!

I thought I scored big when I purchased my client's chairs from Weirs Outlet at $200 a piece until I ordered mine from Overstock on sale for $93 a piece -- plus free shipping!

Unfortunately, I don't have great photos of my new dining chairs in action just yet. As I stated in last week's post, I had planned on photographing many of my recent projects before my due date in May, but this unexpected hospital bed rest has really thrown things off track. However, I promise to get pics posted asap! Here is a not-so-great sneak peek from an iPhone pic to hold you over until then...

While I am aware that there are similar chairs at local retailers, what I love about these chairs is that the back is very thick with a substantial amount of padding allowing for deep tufting. They were easy to put together (I mean, they were easy for me to watch them being put together by my husband :-)) and they are very sturdy! I have no complaints, except for the fact that they are now sold out!

But don't worry, if you are in the market for linen dining chairs, Overstock has other fabulous options for you to choose from such as these:

So what do you think about Overstock's inventory of dining chairs? Have you seen anything similar for a comparable price??

 

Gorgeous Tufted Dining Chairs: My Loss = Your Gain

 

I know, I know...I was totally M.I.A. last week.... So sorry about that! But to make it up to you, I am going to introduce you to something fabulous that I found online a few months ago.... this tufted linen dining chair...  

Crown Top Ivory Linen Dining Chair (Set of 2)

I'll admit, I haven't shared this fabulous find with you until now because, well, I've been selfish and I wanted them for myself! I knew that if I shared them with blogland they would be gone in no time! But, now that I have a nursery to buy for, these beauties have unfortunately moved to the bottom of my priority list...*sigh*

I have been dreaming of linen dining chairs for my dining room table for quite some time... I was especially inspired by this photograph that I've been hoarding away in my inspiration file...

I actually ordered these chairs from Overstock about 2 yrs ago...

....but unfortunately, they are a bit too small for my taste.

The great news about the Crown Top Dining Chair is that I compered the measurements to a very similar (yet more expensive) dining chair that I purchased for a client from a higher end retailer, and the dimensions are exact! They are truly substantial chairs...and the best part??...the price of course... You can score TWO of these lovlies for only $205!!!

Let's have another look, shall we??

What do you think about the chairs? I'm hoping one of my readers will purchase these gorgeous chairs...I want to hear all about them so I can live vicariously through you!

Frugal Find of the Week! Lantern Pendant Lights

 

I have received several compliments on the pendant lights that I used in our kitchen remodel. I found them for an amazing price, so I decided to feature them as this week's frugal find! I originally considered purchasing the Hundi Lantern from Pottery Barn.....

Frugal Find of the Week! Linen Dining Chairs

 

Restoration Hardware is one of my beloved retailers! Fortunately there is a store located near my house, so it is convenient for me to pop in every now and then to marvel at their creations. I dream of one day having an entire house full of Restoration Hardware furniture, accessories and linens! I adore their Dining Room assemblies! Just look at this table....and those over sized lanterns....absolutely stunning!

I also fancy this stylish Dining Room set up...particularly the upholstered dining chairs... When I saw them, I knew I had to have them!

But as I mentioned in my "Welcome" post a few weeks ago, "My struggle is that I fall out of love with pieces just as quickly as I fall in love with them, which makes for very expensive decorating!" So I knew that I would feel much more comfortable purchasing a slightly less expensive alternative... just in case.

Here is the chair that started it all...the Martine Upholstered armchair from Restoration Hardware priced at $419.00

What I love most about this chair is the shape and the nail head trim...

And here is my Frugal Find! The Becca Linen Dining Room Chair from Overstock.com priced at $189.99! I ordered 2 of them...one for each end of our Dining Room table.

It doesn't have the tufted back like the Martine from RH, but I prefer that as they sit near our sofa, which does have tufting, and I thought it might be a little much. I also like the darker stain on the legs and the chrome nail head trim that wraps around the front of the seat...

I hope everyone has a great weekend...and don't forget to check back Monday for  pictures of our Kitchen Remodel!
