i knew it when i first laid eyes on it.
this is exactly what i'd love for my kitchen table to look like.
chic & shabby & cool
industrial meets glam
wood & white & concrete
dark & light juxtaposed
oh i just love it.
( dining area is that of famed photographer amy neunsinger & featured for one, in rachel ashwell's
so for a few years i've had this desire to own some metal chairs.
priced those bad boys & realized that at this stage in life.
also known as sending a child to college and the next one down needs a car
equals no room for the approximately $2,000 bill for the tolix chairs.
began the search for some a tad less.
saw this kitchen & loved her look too.
we have the same dark plank wood floors in all our downstairs
except for the kitchen
but also have the white creamy look going on in all the rooms.
LOVE her kitchen!
back to my reality.
thanks to ya'll i found a few options much more within my budget
& ended up going with the jackson metal tub chairs
from world market.
world market? who knew?
ran in the other day for my virgin visit & loved this entire yellow grey thing they also have going on.
grabbed a couple chairs to bring home for a trial run.
every one loved them.
well back up.
emi at first told me they were a little too funky & modern for our home.
i beg your pardon.
their little arm chair style is super comfy
which is big perk considering i'm not good about going for function over form.
i got the go ahead from dantheman
found a $50 off your purchase plus used another 10% off your entire purchase
& scored the other four.
& a few of the yellow & grey things too.
oh happy day!!
oh & by the way
they are not black
even though in my photos they appear black
nor or they shiny silvery
but they are that gun metal aluminum grey color.
so here's where YOU come in.
i'm usually decisive & know what i want.
i'm a little stumped.
i think my current table needs to go.
in my mind of course i'm dreaming of amy's table
all farmtablish & cool
& functional of course.
but i also love the thought of a distressed (slightly) all white/cream table.
just like a woman
i also love the opposite
a large dark wood planked farm table.
what do you think?
remember, my kitchen tiled floor is all cream
as are my walls
& i don't want it to look too busy. too chopped up.
but maybe pulling in that dark wood like the floors would be good too?
i don't know...
lay it on me.
& because i know you'll ask
the super cute eat napkins are from lemonade makin' momma
& you can snatch some up right here.
the numbered napkin rings were picked up in Savannah.
i don't know their brand sorry
but i thought they looked all sadie olive goes pottery barn.
placemats from world market.
anyway....style advice? bring it...
