Dining Room Chairs

I just asked for some Tolix aka Marais AC chairs for my birthday! I have been in LOOOOVVE with them for forever now. I thought they would look so nice around my dining room table.  Technically they are outdoor garden chairs, but I think with a cute cushion they could be really nice dining room chairs.

Here is an original French ad for the antique outdoor garden chair:

Can I tell you how this antique French ad made me love them even more!

Well they are ridic expensive, especially the antique originals. I stumbled across the blog Thirteen and South who talked about the knock offs they found for a fraction of the price!! Im no chair snob so of course I love the knock offs and the knock off price ($99)!

I have a dark wood table like the one below so I thought they would look perfect! Imagine this scene below with little cute (possibly hand sewn) cushions.

So maybe I shouldn't be dreading this upcoming (30th) birthday after all! Ha ha! Just kidding, chairs aren't gonna make me feel any younger!

  1. Thanks for the shout out! I hope you enjoy the chairs. You'll have to share a picture with me.

    PS- I too will be celebrating(?) my 30th birthday soon. So we have more in common than our love for tolix chairs!
