Dining sets are well and good if you want to play it safe, but we love the the look of a mix – think rustic farm table paired with modern aluminum chairs, a bench instead of several seats, mismatched hand-me-down chairs painted a uniform color – to show a little individuality. If you're thinking about swapping out your set for a few pieces with a little more personality, we suggest heading to DWR's Fillmore Street location next Saturday, September 12th, from 10 to 2 for their Mix and Match Brunch. If noshes from Boulangerie and mimosas from Vino aren't enough incentive to mosey by, perhaps 15% off on combinations of four or more select dining chairs, stools and tables can wrest you from your morning slumber.
Kartell continues in the tradition of their iconic Louis Ghost and with a new polycarbonate chair based on an archetypal style. This time the inspiration comes from vintage wicker chairs, but takes the look in a different direction with a veined detail on the surface reminiscent of the leaves of a papyrus plant (hence the name). Plastic chairs don't offer much comfort in our opinion, but the look of these transparent pieces can be helpful in maintaining a sense of openness in a small space, making them a fitting addition in any city apartment.
