Tulip chair

Tulip chairs are so iconic and adorable. I always wanted a tulip chair and recently bought 2 knock-offs at a local retro antique store for my bedroom. So I thought I would do a post on tulip chairs because I am just so damn proud of myself for owning some of my own!

OH – did I mention my chairs were only $75 each??? 😉 And that’s in CDN funds. And that fabric is Josef Frank. I thought so but checked in my mag to be sure.

75 each canadian? gahhh…

drey says:

Erin T says:

Cute! And the scarves were a great idea. I have many beautiful scarves that belonged to my Grammy. I’d love to whip some up into pillows, but they smell like a perfume from the 1970’s. I’m afraid it might be “Charles of the Ritz”.

kim. says:

Yep – did it myself (otherwise I would have picked out much nicer and sturdier fabric). The scarves worked well but not for everyday use…the material pulled very easily.


gorgeous chairs of yours. *envy* 🙂

I am about to buy 2 of these on craigslist without cushions. Does anyone know where I can find cushions for these chairs? Thanks!

kim. says:

I don’t know if this helps you shannon but mine are basically pieces of wood with foam or something over it and it’s screwed on from underneath. So don’t see why you wouldn’t be able to make something yourself.
