Typography

French Chairs upholstered in French printed burlap from Paris Hotel Boutique

I just love typography. Anything with interesting letter design piques my interest. Perhaps that's why I started collecting hotel silver because of the fancy script and logos across the front of the pieces.

When I see vintage typeset or calligraphy, I go crazy! I spent $200 on a sweatshirt in New York because of the vintage font on the front. I just can't help myself! Here are some of my favorites...{I had to sneak in some photos from my website}

I adore typography too but your bergere chairs are absolutely GENIUS. I was totally wowed by the chairs and have never seen a pair done that way. Where did you find the burlap for it? WOW!

Thanks for your comments everyone. I guess you either love or hate these chairs. They were blogged about a lot and some good and some harsh comments are floating around.

I didn't upholster them myself. I actually purchased them the way they are. They really piqued my interest when I saw them.

thanks again for visiting!
