i loooove these. and it is at one of my favorite shops!
this is the old lady in me, but i adore these chairs! you could have the back panel fabric replaced again to something contrasting- would help update them a little bit. this is what anthropologie is dying to be!
i love this thing! it might be sacrilege to paint it, but that top detailing would be so graphic in off white or a color. http://richmond.craigslist.org/fuo/4417893841.html
