hood chairs

Love ‘em or leave ‘em? Clearly I am having a boisterous saturday evening over here… My mom is just dying to bring one of these statement making chairs home but my dad has been steadfast in his dislike for them. I do agree that they can be a bold choice but done right, I think they can look quite chic.

Have you seen them inside the Kelly Wearstler designed BG Restaurant at Bergdorf’s? After I purchased my wedding dress my mom and I celebrated over Gotham salads at BG and I think sitting in the hood chairs made it feel even more special and added an element of privacy. So what do you think? Yay or nay?

    I love them! I also find their history very cool.

      Do share! I actually don’t know much about them. My furniture class only reached up to Queen Anne & Chippendale but I’m really looking forward to the second part next semester!

    I absolutely love those chairs and hope to have a pair in my home one day! My great-grandparents had one in their house, so whenever I see a hood chair it reminds me of them! The ones at BG Restaurant are just fabulous!! So I say yay!

    YAY! Done right, I think they are absolutely fantastic.

    I’ve been thinking of purchasing one for the stationery studio and calling it the “brides chair.” You may have just convinced me! Any resources for one in white patent leather?

      I LIKE it! I want a brides chair, haha. Patent leather is a bold choice – prob not very common… How about light beige linen? I’ve seen that around!
