First off, the inspiration:
Without further adieu - here is my brand "old" new set of black and cane bentwood chairs!!! All 7 of them - one was thrown in there as a bonus. I got them for a great price too! I haven't confirmed yet if they were original Thonet chairs but regardless, they are good enough for me! A new slick of paint and they will be good to go!
Aren't they brilliant? I now have to wait about a month to get them here as they are in Melbourne. M's parents who are driving over to Adelaide in February will bring them over along with a few more goodies including a beautiful distressed antique armoire we will use as a pantry and a gorgeous crackled ceramic table lamp that M got me for Christmas (we didn't even attempt to take it on the plane with us).. Now begins the search for the perfect dining table to match. I love the texture of the wood table used in Scott Weston's images. Hopefully we will be lucky on that front too!
...And one more image of the famous chairs thrown in for good riddance. I love the idea of the cushions for a bit of added comfort!
