Art Nouveau Chairs

I mentioned I love refinishing furniture, so I wanted to show a picture of 1 of a pair of chairs that I fell in love with. I love the shape of the back, this style is French Art Nouveau with the organic movement of the chair back.

I wasn’t sure which direction to go in with paint and fabric until I saw Waverly Ballad Bouquet with its soft romantic florals. It fits in beautifully with the organic natural shape of the Nouveau period, and in Robin’s Egg (another nod to that period) and, I immediately thought of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Grey and it clicked!

That’s how it happens with me…most of the time I don’t necessarily have a plan, but I live with a piece for a little bit and then inspiration strikes like a lightening bolt!

That’s the background of these chairs…I can’t wait to see the results…I’ll share that with you next week!
