Where can I get those chairs?

I love the arm chairs shown in the Pratt's living room in "Designing for Comfort and Light" in issue one. The nice velvety ones in rust and teal. Any possibility of finding a source?

I haven't received IH yet, but isn't there a resource section in the magazine somewhere? Most magazines have one in the back.

 

Eroomgardener, Zone 6 or 7 depending.

There is, but apparently the editors want to hog that chair resource for themselves {G}

Harrumph, that's rather unkind of them.  ;-)


Still waiting for my issue to arrive....

Hi Theodora,


I found out that the furniture store where the Pratts got their armchairs is no longer in business. I did some checking around, though, and found that there are similar chairs available through:


Crate and Barrel (www.crateandbarrel.com) - the Mallory chair, for example


Room & Board (www.roomandboard.com) - the Osborn chair & the Spencer chair, for example. Room & Board's sister store, Retrospect (www.retrospecthome.com), also has some possibilities.


You might also try Ethan Allen (www.ethanallen.com) and Restoration Hardware (www.restorationhardware.com).


Getting an exact match on the fabric color may be difficult, although an upholstery shop (or a store like Ethan Allen where you choose the upholstery when you buy the chair) may be the best bet.


Good luck...

Thank you, Anne, for such a thoroughly researched answer. You found good hits. Nice choices that are very similar at all those Web sites. And I'd make diff color choices, so matching the color isn't a problem. I appreciate your taking the trouble to track the info down.

Theodora,


While I was writing the article on the Pratt house for the first issue of Inspired House, I asked where they purchased the living room furniture. They ordered it through a local firm (Design Solutions in New Canaan, Connecticut), and it was made by the Lee Company.


Good luck.
