I think we can all agree that we love checking out One Kings Lane for their well curated sales and to find inspiration for our own homes. Well, now there’s another reason to head over and fall in love all over again. One Kings Lane has recently launched their Home Décor Resource, a guide filled with information on the history of chairs.
Has a chair been passed down to you that you know nothing about other than it’s old? Are you in search of a particular style of chair but don’t know what it’s called? Or maybe you’re like me and just have no clue what people are talking about when they’re referring to a bergere chair vs. a Louis XV chair. If so, their Home Décor Resource can help you give it a name and the history behind it.
I know some of you are all, “Oh my gosh! How does she not know what a Louis XV chair looks like!!!”, but I didn’t. Until now, I had referred to my Louis XV chairs (I already feel fancier calling them by their real names) as those frenchy looking chairs.
One currently resides in our master bedroom at my desk.
In our last house, the pair lived in our dining room.
I love those stinking chairs. Reupholstering them was one of my very first DIY’s. Now that I know the history behind those chairs, I’m going to dive in and see what I can find out about this guy.
Even though nothing I have is really old or original, it’s still fun to find out a little about them. Heck, no one wants to be nameless!
What pieces do you guys have that are style/nameless? Any “old lady” chairs out there?
