Table and Chairs (and Shoes)

I recently saw these chairs at World Market and knew I'd make them fit in my house somewhere... one wall of the family room had never been quite how I wanted it, so here they are:

World Market Emma Tufted Chairs

I'd had a larger black table with one chair there before and that table just overwhelmed the smaller scale chairs so it has moved and been replaced by this new one from Ballard Designs that arrived (quickly and in perfect condition) last week:

I purchased the lamp in Thailand - I think Pattaya - years ago, and the vase in Dan Kwian...  I bought many pottery pieces there when we lived in Thailand.  The paint color on the walls is Benjamin Moore Chestertown Buff.

Looking at the pics, I see I really need to tuck that lamp cord somehow.

Also, I cannot wait to wear these shoes.  It's still cold but we've had lots of sun breaks lately (a term that I'd never heard growing up but is now quite familiar) so I'm wanting to break out the Spring shoes.  I won't wait for it to get really warm, but I do need a pedicure.

These are past season and I bought them on sale from Bergdorf Goodman.  They shipped directly from SW though, so even though they are sold out all over (Duchess of Cambridge effect), there still may be some stock available.  I recently noticed the somewhat similar Reins style is featured in the March 2013 Nordstrom catalog (p. 75).

  1. Everything is great but I love the chairs!!! Erica

  2. Hello,
    I was googling jcrew wicker clutches, and your blog came up as a top hit. I know that the post from your wicker clutch was a long time ago, but I was wondering if you remember whether it held up okay with use?
    thanks for the help! I have my eye on the new one, and any info to stave off buyers remorse would be great!

    1. Hi there, I haven't used it that much but it still looks great and is in good condition. Mine seems to be well made. Hope this helps!

    2. Thanks! love your blog!

  3. (also, i started following your blog around the time of the Royal Wedding, so it was a happy coincidence :) )

  4. Love the chairs... couldn't you come on over & tweak my living room for me? ;-) I wore open toed shoes this weekend... I looked like a crazy American... but I just did not care.
