I have dreams. Big dreams. Dreams that involve my kitchen, and an apron, and a bottle of wine, and a big strong man… I MEAN NO. Dinette chairs. I’m talking about dinette chairs. GOODNESS where did my mind go!
I DREAM of owning a set of Kartell Mademoiselle chairs. Just like this.

DREAM is the operating word there, people. I’m no millionaire. As much as I can say I’ll save and save… it ain’t happenin’ people. So I looked for nice alternatives, and the Ikea Nils armchairs were not a bad substitute! For $70 a piece I can definitely afford that over a grand for the (ohsolustful) Kartell. If I must.

So Shaf and I drove the 5 seconds to our local Ikea, and picked some up! We got two Nils sans arms as well, because he cleverly pointed out that not everyone is 5’1″ and may very well not fit into an armchair as comfortably as I can. That’s one of the many reasons why I keep him around, people. He looks at things in a completely different way and it makes me complete.
We only got 4 chairs because the rest of our table sits next to a bay window bench, which make up two of the seats. Which I love.
Plus, I think it’s a nice mix of the Mademoiselle chairs, and this:
So. I WILL be making covers for my little Nils-es, oh yes I will. Since my kitchen is going to be Red and Aqua, I was thinking about doing them in one (or more? DARING!) of these. I’m really diggin’ the Joel Dewberry Lattice. And the Architectural, but that may be hard to march up with the arms. And too busy? Who knows. We shall see. Which do you think??
