IN A RELATIVELY SHORT PERIOD OF TIME..
The phrase “Statement Necklace”…
HAS BECOME part of the Fashion vernacular…I don my favorite statement necklaces with pride. I have not always been the best at remembering to accessorize my own self …but I swear…once I started thinking about accessorizing myself…like I do a room…it became a piece of cake…a fun and pretty piece of cake…and Stella and Dot didn’t hurt either…!
So when one my of FAVORITE Websites , ONE KINGS LANE contacted me and asked me to Showcase a Statement Chair using their Design Resource Center as a guide…I thought SURE..and SERIOUSLY….why stop at ONE???
Here is my 5 rules of thumb when it come to Statement chairs….
1. Must make me Happy
2. MUST be able to be moved through-out my house
3. MUST coordinate by NOT be too matchy matchy…I usually reserve my Statement chairs for my more expensive fabrics because I will not need too much and it will serve such a great purpose.
4. MUST be comfortable TO SIT IN.
5. MUST HAVE fabric THAT IS durable or washable…pretty much the rule of thumb around here!
Every room in my old Country House has a STATEMENT CHAIR…I LOVE THEM…THAT POP!!!!…THAT SPECIAL CHAIR THAT PULLS IT ALL TOGETHER…makes you look twice…surprises you and most importantly takes what could be a cookie cutter room and gives it my unique SPIN!!
lets take a look shall we….

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Phoebe’s chair. I spent a year looking for a chair for her room when I did her 13th birthday makeover. I wanted something that was young and fun and also comfy enough for her to curl up and study in…I uphostered it in the Dwell Studio fabric which matches her Cornices and is in a few places around the house…
