A Rainbow of Chinese Chippendale Chairs




This is my Chinese Chippendale Chair I found for $55.00, painted in Farrow & Ball Skylight, and covered in a lovely Cowtan & Tout fabric I already had in my stash. If you are lucky enough to find a Chinoiserie chair of your own, don't be afraid to paint it any color at all. Everything works on these beauties.

Red




White





Gold


Tortoiseshell

I can not get enough of these chairs, they are class yet feel modern day. They truly are gorgeous in any colorway!

Great collection! They are so elegant and I love when they are used around a big dining room table.

OMG! I am dying for a set of 6 Chippendales for my dining room table. I have not had any luck finding them without spending a forture...any ideas?
Great post!

I adore them all. I have several myself. I actually have over 30 chiavari ballroom chairs I picked up recently and want to paint them in some of the luscious colors you've shown here. Thanks for the inspiration!!
