Ikat Chairs

April 21, 2011 by admin

Isn’t this room just lovely?  I’ve had it on my desktop for a while and can’t remember where I got it (I feel like I saw it in House Beautiful or Elle Decor but I could be lying).  I just love the bold ikat covered chairs and how their punchiness is balanced by the muddy muted drapes.  Army green and grape juice purple plus grey-blue?  Delish!

In case you love this room as much as I do, here are some of the beautiful building blocks to keep your eye out for:


It starts with some to-die-for silk ikat cushions from the global-decor master herself, Madeline Weinrib followed by a sensibly affordable brown sofa from West Elm.  Save and splurge right?  Next go for a hefty ceramic gourd lamp by Robert Abbey in a sophisticated shade of blue-grey and add a little sparkle with mirrored occasional tables with a scalloped edge.  Dress your walls in a coat of “Lichen SR 48″ paint by Sarah Richardson for Para and if all else fails (or is out of the budget!) go for a perfectly plummy melamine tray from Crate & Barrel!

  1. I love these chairs too! I love that they stayed with the old-fashioned-looking “tub chair” upholstery style with the skirt. But the fabric definitely modernizes it. I’ll take two please!

    As much as I love the chairs, I could never commit to anything that wasn’t a nuetral. My husband doesn’t like it when I want to replace expensive things that are only a few years old. But the pillows I could do!
    My walls are painted in a BM color very similar to the color you recommended. I had never thought to add punches of grape as an accent color. Thanks for the tip!

    Love what the army green does for that room. It’s a great balance for someone (like me) who can never decide if they want light and airy or rich and warm.
