Monogrammed Dining Chairs

Monday, September 21, 2009

I have not done a post about decorating in a while and a few people have e-mailed me design related questions lately so I thought it was time. You might remember us posting about these dining room chairs. We had taken eight chairs out on approval and were hoping to get a discount. We eventually decided that we needed ten chairs and we did get a nice discount. I had the opportunity to have the extra two monogrammed before they were re-upholstered. I simply took the fabric to my local monogram shop and had a slate grey "S" placed in the middle. Then I returned the fabric to the shop and they upholstered them for us. We opted for monogramming only the host and hostess chairs. Dave was not really in favor of this at all but I love how they turned out.

  2. What a great idea. I love that you only monogrammed the host and hostess chairs, 10 may have been too much. Love your style.

    PS. Thanks for your beautiful comments, I can't tell you how happy I was to have a comment from 3 peanuts!!!! It made my day :)

  3. I love the idea of monogramming chairs. My husband has been quite annoyed at me lately, after I bought several monogrammed items. I just purchased pillows for our bed with our monogram yesterday. Boys just don't get it. You house is beautiful and wonderfully decorated!

  14. Beautiful, Kim! I love the S and the color of your chairs. We are monogram crazy at our house. It might be a little over the top :)

  19. That chair is georgeous! And you should photograph for "House Beautiful". I agree, ten would have been too much, two is just perfect. I love your taste.
