Sittin' Pretty in Nanjing

Do you remember the fabulous Chinoiserie chair that Carter gifted me for Christmas?

Well, I finally recovered her seat. She's now sitting pretty in Schumacher's Nanjing.

She also has a friend.

The [now] dynamite pair sit in two corners of our dining room and serve as our head chairs as needed. The room is shades of green and lavender with touches of black and gold. I started incorporating some blue and white porcelain a while back in the form of a large ginger jar that serves as the table's centerpiece and some plates I display on the wall.

Nanjing is the perfect touch to pull more of the classic blue and white Chinoiserie into the room. I'm thinking I might do some accompanying bolster pillows in a lavender moire fabric... 


  1. They are gorgeous!! I enjoy seeing different chairs tied together with paint and fabric. Love those walls too.


  2. Beautiful. I'd love to see a picture of the whole room including the new chairs.

  3. The fabric looks right at home on those chairs, love it!

  4. Out of control, I love it!

  5. Looks fab and I'm sure you are thrilled.

  6. OMG, I have the Chinoiserie Chair in a side chair which is an old Sareid Chair that was painted in Italian Gold & Green. Lacquered that bad boy up in black & then did Nanjing Blue too!!! How fun!
