I’ve had a thing for this very particular type of chair for about three years now. I’ve heard them called, kitchen windsors and Grange chairs by Martha. The chairs are small and have a curved back that snuggly fits around you. I spot them at fleamarkets all the time for around $10-$20 each. Below a set I spotted at Todd Farm in May 2009—I was broke and couldn’t afford the set, sad.
Anyway…my older sister announced she wants to come for Thanksgiving last week. Honestly, my house is a disaster zone and they thought of having guests gives me instant acid reflux. But I can make due, right? I have a table but I don’t have chairs.
Over the weekend I scored a set of three chairs (above) from Grace Interiors in Marblehead. Now I’m on the search for three more which still doesn’t fit all my guests but it’s a start. I want to paint them eithier a putty gray or maybe a dark dark green? I’m not a huge fan of black because I think the color lacks depth even in a gloss.
