I wanna talk about these chairs.



And here's what I am going to say... I like 'em. Business in the front, party in the back. It's good. What are we going to call this? A fabric mullet? A chair mullet? A chullet.

Yes. A chullet.

More chullets for you:



(Yuck.)


(No.)


This sofa chullet (sullet? ...that we remember from Domino) is so heavenly, I don't even know what to do with myself.

I like the surprise of the first one. Nothing indicates the back of the chair is going to be wildly different.

Now I think I'll make my chairs into chullets. They need reupholstering.

LB, thanks for saying "chullet." Let's make this happen.

I bought two new chairs today and was debating whether or not to make them into chullets. I think you've made my decision for me. Now I just need to find some awesome fabric.

Decorno said...

I went on a sample-buying spree lately from https://lsfabrics.com. Many good options there.

I love it! I have some chullets in my dining room--suede (the business) on the front, and a pattern (the party!) on the back.

I'm with Ivy Lane; I don't like the deconstructed look. As for chullets, well I guess some look better than others do to me and my taste in fabric and chair design probably dictates that. Love the word chullet!

We are doing some plaid in the back, linen in the front chairs for a client right now. Plailluet?

I like the one from Domino the best! The first ones I like all right; I like them best when they have some association with the front fabric. Those look like they had some leftover fabric lying around. They don't look very happy together; just my opinion!

XXOO

"deconcstructing" should be made illegal for anyone to do without a license! And Restoration hardware flunked the test to get a license!

Decorno said...

Doug, "plailluet" actually makes it sound pretty fancy. Way to class it up. :)

Gotta dig that cabinet over the mantle in the first pic. And "bed Dickie" is still the best new word! My customers all refer to wanting a Dickie now (twin comforter turned sideways at my store ). Thanks for new descriptors.

A "chullet". For a non-committal like me, I love it.

I did "chullets" in my living room with a pair of vintage chairs. Everyone acted like I was insane but I love them!

I did "chullets" in my living room with a pair of vintage chairs and my long obsessed about Dwell Plumes fabric. I love them!

The chairs really look lovely. They are for sure going to make a big difference in any home.

A lady can never have too many chairs. These are lovely.

I bought five antique dining chairs and I'm definitely giving them the chullet treatment - reason why is because with pets, who like to sneak up on the chairs when I'm not home, I can really only put the truly beautiful fabric on the back of the chair - the rest has to be pet-friendly.
