Versatile Yellow Slipper Chair

Last month, my neighbor inherited two yellow slipper (Asian style) chairs from her grandmother.  I saw them sitting in her driveway the day she got them, and immediately jumped out of my car to tell her how beautiful they are.

Here are three different inspiration boards to show Robynne just how versatile these chairs can be--in their original bright yellow fabric!

1. Traditional/Conventional Style: Robyn's plantation shutters and blue carpet, light aqua ginger jar lamp with a white drum shade, espresso console table (this one is from Target!), "fishbowl aquamarine" Waverly fabric curtains, "cross section green" Waverly cotton fabric pillow, and a soft landscape framed in a dark frame.

2. Formal Style: French Directoire style side table, framed chinoiserie paper, red and gold distressed bullseye mirror, a palm potted in an urn, natural fiber rug/carpet, and tone-on-tone green stripped wallpaper.

3. Bohemian/Eclectic style: quirky wrapped canvas portrait, ikat fabric with warm colors for pillow and curtains, black and white geometric pattern rug, colorful West Elm "hive" vases, turned leg side table, "hoshi table lamp" in green apple from Wayfair with traditional white lamp shade.

Congratulations on the beautiful chairs Robynne!
