12 Dining Chair Styles

What's your Dining Chair Style?

Do you know your style when you see it?  Or does the home dictate the style of chair?  Either way here are some of my current favorite coastal modern dining chairs.  Most of these 12 Dining Chair styles are casual yet elegant.  All would be at home in a beach house or a modern farmhouse.

The Start of High Point Furniture Market

Wow!  I came into work today as usual and started pecking through the 1000 or so eamils I recieved over the weekend.  99% of my of my mail is usually porduct or industry related. This weekend was the start of the High Point Furniture Market.  Which means my inbox was FULL of all the new products every showroom has to offer.   I've been to High Point more times than I can remember and I just wasn't prepared to do the march this year.  It's worked out well.  With Social Media I still see everything, from the comfort of my own home!

We've had a H-O-T start to our Summer already!

This past weekend was a much needed extra long break with four days off  to celebrate the Fourth of July Holiday. 

Which is quite literally just the beginning of Summer has reinforced the reality that we here in Florida have a very long steamy few month ahead of us.  

So as I spent most of each mid day hours in the house to escape the heat I did a little shopping around for something that felt kind of COOL.

    Favorite Finds Jill Shevlin Design Vero Beach Coastal Home Decor Pottery Barn Finds

    I am always on the hunt for great home decor products.  These days I spend more time on the computer than I do in showrooms and stores.  I think that's true for just about everyone though....the times they are a changing.

    Today I spent some time looking at Pottery Barn.  Although I have not been much of a fan of their products in the past, I think they have upped their game and come out with some interesting pieces.  Mixed with items from other sources of course, I would never suggest decorating an entire home from one store.  

    Today's favorite finds are coastal inspired, with a touch of modern.  Just the way I like it.
