One eBay chair- 2 looks. Traditional or Contemporary

While trawling through eBay recently I spied an interesting set of Dining chairs. While they wouldn’t be everyone’s cup of tea, their unusualness really got me thinking. I have created two different looks with these chairs as the center piece.  Everything shown had been sourced from eBay!

For a traditional look I have gone with a predominantly black and grey colour scheme with the classic lines of the Queen Anne legs of the oval ottoman, pedestal Dining table and rolled arms of the Day Bed in a lush velvet.

The motive of the oval ottoman has been picked up in either the black or soft grey wall paper options.

The exception to this classic look is the contemporary table lamp with its chrome base more in keeping with the Dining chairs.


The look I have gone with for the contemporary option has more of a stony grey palate with accents of white, black and metallic.

The Kelly Hopen wallpaper in grey and white adds a modern soft graphic feels that sits well with the clean lined but comfy looking sofa. Big soft rock cushions look like an inviting place for the kids to chill.

Yellow has been added in the bold artwork and accessories, while metallic accessories and a retro Art Deco drinks trolley and pendant lighting ads sophistication
