Good Chair(s) Hunting

The stylist's home office is almost done except for one key piece (or more accurately-- four key pieces!), the chairs! I just want a simple white wooden chair with some great upholstery. Boy its a pain to find those within a reasonable price. Thrift shops to the rescue!

I went to Bangkal Makati in search for the perfect work seat for those very busy girls (stylist and her crew). I had fun looking around except for the heat! Oh my I think I lose a little weight with our nature's gift (or curse) -- outdoor sauna!

Anyway, here are the candidates:

Hello details! Love the curves on this one. P2000 each.

Understated traditional. P3000 each.

I want to take this home! P1000 each.

Sexy curves. This is such a steal! P3000 / 6 pcs! Can someone buy this already!

Hotel-ish lounge chairs. P2500 each.

Super sleek. P3700 each.

Can you guess which one we bought? Hint: Mix and match of 2 styles! So you'll probably assume that we didn't purchase the 3000/6 pcs based on my comment above. But I beg you, if you're looking for dining chairs, get those please!

Anyway, if you're going to shop at thrift shops, look past all the dingy woods and tacky fabrics, that's an easy fix! Buy a chair whose shape you love most. The chairs for this office will have a white ducco finish with some neutral fabric for the seat and back rest, and some peek of accent fabric. I can envision it so clear and I can't wait to finally have them done.

Happy thrift shopping!
