Bamboo Director's Chairs


I was in a very expensive local home furnishings store over the weekend and saw a pair of bamboo director's chairs that looked identical to these at $700 each in a living room vignette. They were shown as sitting chairs along with a traditional sofa and lots of blue and white Chinese porcelain. I loved the look! I found these above at Walmart for $99.98 for a set of two. They are available elsewhere online as well. I think these could be very Chinoiserie Chic in a living room, dining room, breakfast room, or family room. Perfect for that Ralph Lauren/British Colonial look on a budget!

First you find the perfect Chinoiserie stool at Kmart and now this chair from Walmart?!?! Clearly the Big Box stores are stepping it up in a big way.

Truly the world is at your fingertips! I had directors chairs in my first apartment. And I changed the fabric. My new boyfriend (now husband) was wary about the chair, expressing concerns that the chair might be too dainty for him. I assured him otherwise. He sat down and seat fabric ripped in half. We still laugh about it 36 years later.
