Faux Bamboo Club Chairs

Today, I am off to Santa Rosa (about an hour North of San Francisco) to pick up two faux bamboo chairs for $85.  I know, such a steal.  They will finish off the seating in our living room.  I am tempted to paint them white or to use imitation gold leaf paint but I first must pick out what type of fabric I’m going to use for the seat cushions.  They may just stay as is:

I saw that Ballard Design makes cushion seats and if these cushions come in the correct size, I may use them which would be must cheaper then getting them custom done.

The latest Lonny Mag came out yesterday, which really made my Sunday complete.  I was thrilled to see a chair like my pair that I’m picking up today in Palmer Weiss’ home.

Prior to seeing this chair, I was considering painting my chairs with gold leaf paint and her chair pushed me further towards that decision.  But we’ll see…the fabric has a large bearing on what direction the chairs will go.  And I tend to change my mind all the time when it comes to our place.  Palmer picked this chair up at Monument in the Mission district in San Francisco which has beautiful pieces!  I’m also head over heels for Palmer’s little girls room…

Love the color choices, love the pom pom trim, love the lumbar pillows, love the photos above the bed, love the bedskirt trim.  Love it all!!  Check out her little girls’ playroom –

Love the grasscloth wallpaper, love the roman shade, love the artwork gallery.  Love, love, love.

Palmer lives in San Francisco, perhaps I will get up enough courage to ask her to coffee one day.
