I *Love* Occasional Chairs

Occasional Chair Inspiration

I love occasional chairs for so many reasons… but mostly because they function as a versatile piece of furniture for extra seating, can be as pretty as you’d like and break up the structure of traditional rooms.

Whether you reupholster your own find from a local thrift store or splurge on a designer look (get that look for less at Pier 1, which features all four chairs above) incorporating a beautifully upholstered chair into a living, dining or bedroom makes a perfect addition.

How great are these beautiful French provincial chairs featured at Decor Pad? The old-fashioned formality of traditional sitting chairs takes on a brand new meaning when mixed into an eclectic space.

Silver, Lavender & Green Purple New Year's Even Inspiration

Freezing edible goodies in ice cubes is my favorite way to fancy up a favorite cocktail. You can find edible violets at a specialty super market (just be sure to call before hand to save yourself a trip) or at many high-end gardening stores (clarify that you’re looking for the organic, non-sprayed version).

More great images and ideas after the jump!…
