Fabulous Chair of the Week.

I was browsing the internet for beach house furniture and stopped in my tracks when I came across this chair on the Kravet interior design showroom website.  It spoke to me, beckoned me, and I was so utterly taken by it's unique charm and clever design that I wanted to share it with you.

  No, at first glance, it doesn't exactly scream summer cottage chic, in fact it most certainly has a very urban and cosmopolitan feel in its clean retro design style simplicity.  But then again,  I thought: it can just as easily find a place in a weekend house by the sea as it can in a 23rd floor condo in Manhattan.  In fact, for those who prefer a more contemporary/transitional look to their personal environments it is just the perfect chair...or two.  And it comes with a matching ottoman.  

It is sometimes hard to see, but wood finishes and upholstery fabric can change a piece dramatically.  For instance, putting a lighter finish on the frame of the chair and using a fabric with more color or pattern still sophisticated enough, but with a more of a casual feel will transition it smoothly into a more relaxed environment appropriate for a summer residence.
