Ebay Find Inspired Room

Yesterday I had a little bit of an Ebay Breakdown- I realized a few hours too late that I missed the end of an auction for a perfect antique Persian rug I’d been watching for days.  My dogs didn’t seem to understand my despair.  So back on eBay I hopped and found . I am in love. The antique gilt frames with the slightly off kilter, somewhat country chic linen stripe upholstery. I want them, so don’t you dare bid on them :)

It got me wondering Just how I’d use them in a room, so created a monochromatic but dramatic black and cream dining room to show you how chairs in this style can be made modern.  I paired them with a fabulous glossy table from , a gold chandelier from , silk drapes with black embroidered border from , an antique Persian rug from , a grass cloth and brass nail head buffet topped with gold lamps from and those BANANAS zebra hide retro-modern stools found on you could easily add an accent color to this room (kelly green or canary yellow would be spectacular) in drapes or the rug!

I seriously want those stupid chairs. ARGH.
