Because you get what you pay for, our dining chairs a friend sold us for next to nothing have mysteriously started to split in half. Literally, right down the middle. So we’re on a hunt, and I want to avoid ikea chairs. But my vintage search is just expensive insanity here in NYC, so my top contenders right now are some at West Elm. I love these two new styles they have, the maybe too spacey but pretty awesome wrap chair (kind of love the idea of a bright yellow chair in my otherwise calm-colored living room), and the stackable chair. But up there more in price is the oval back chair that I have been lusting after for a long time now. Ah, what a beauty.
