Inspiration: Red Mobler chairs

red-mobler-chairs

I came across this great image via Apartment Therapy the other day. It’s a set of mismatched dining chairs featuring one of Kitka’s favorite chairs: the FDB Mobler chair designed by Folke Palsson. As you may know we purchased a set of 6 for around our dining table, we never did mention the price, and we felt like we should be honest and be as realistic as we can, whether we’re finding mad deals or splurging. Let’s just say these chairs fall in between a deal and a splurge–we paid $595 for a set of 6, which for us is a deal but after you tack on the $200 shipping it quickly became a splurge. Luckily we found someone trying to sell a single chair for around $235 so that made us feel a lot better–as long as they are being sold for more than we paid, we’re relieved.

I really love this shade of red. If you remember the set we purchased were all black but it might be interesting to add a little colour to our cottage. We’ll have to see when they come in, we can’t wait!
