In Search Of The Perfect Red Bamboo Chair


When I started to decorate my new dining room, I finally decided it was time to scratch that itch and get some red bamboo chairs already. In general, they are hard to find and so expensive. The Jonathan Adler Chippendale Side Chair, as an example, is more then $650! I ended up finding these wonderful chairs on Charlotte & Ivy for much less than that. I love the chair—great lines—but it was driving me crazy that the red just wasn’t va-voom enough!

So, of course, I spray-painted those suckers a bright Ferrari red.

I got the fabulous “distressed graywash” pedestal table on sale at Ballard Designs, by the way, and I just love it.

But I still need drapes, and should I re-cover those seats? So much more to do, but I love that this room is finally starting to come together!
