Orange accent chairs galore


In my quest to furnish the new house, I've been traveling around the internet. One thought was that I need an orange chair for living room or the parlor. At the moment, one of those rooms is completely empty except for two tool boxes, a rolled-up rug pad, and a TV cabinet we need to sell on Craigslist. Places for people to perch might be nice! How about orange? Here are some options I'm eyeing. Some are just for pretend because the price tags are bananas. For my budget, anyhow.

Madeline Chair, $379
Howell Wingback, $1,898
Grayson Chair, $899
Parlour Atomic Orange Chair, $699
Womb Chair and Ottoman (a reproduction), $1,295


Luna Accent Chair, $759
Strandmon Wing Chair, $279 (It's a little more orange and less red than this photo, I've seen it in person)
Rhys Chair, $2,498 Whew!
Regan Upholstered Chair, $299

I honestly like the two cheapest ones best!

I'm an orange freak like you (I'm using freak in the nicest way possible, but maybe I should say I'm a fellow orange enthusiast!) and I'm drooling over these chairs!! I love it when you post an orange items theme. :)

I'm sure you've seen the website Poppin, which sells fun and practical office supplies in every color. I have a bunch of the orange stuff! I really want either one of these chairs for my office:

They're too pricey for me right now, but I'm on the lookout for more affordable similar ones!

Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

So obsessed with that leather one! It would look so amazing with some bright blue accessories!!

I'm really drawn to the Parlour Atomic chair, and also the Regan chair. I'm think I'm going to bookmark that Regan chair for my own living room. Great styles, all of them.

Oh, my... decisions! Glad it's you having to make the choices and not me. 'Course, my choices would be between blue ones and not orange. ;)

I love dream shopping! Although I must say a pair of the Madeleine chairs could look very "parlor appropriate" and the price tag isn't too bad. I haven't heard about the durability/wear on any UO upholstered pieces though . . . Can't wait to see more of your new house! Cheers - CT

What about a cheaper chair with a fabric cover? I made this one for our sofa: http://clyoparecchini.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/sofas-cover-before-and-after.html

My husband is in love with orange too ;-)

Jessica, I like your blog and loved it on blogionaire.com

Laura, I didn't know Poppin sold chairs. Interesting!

Clyo, nice work on that slipcover!

Anonymous, thanks. Never been to that site before.

Ha! This morning I also posted an orange chair roundup (IKEA only). Orange-loving minds must think alike. You've included many of my favorites here. We settled on (and love) West Elm's Victor in "campfire" linen weave. Urban Outfitter's chairs were tempting too.

Aldara said...

Oh my god! I didn't know Poppin! Do they send to UK? I'm just like crazy with all these pink stuff.

BTW, I'm afraid I love the expensive ones. It seems even "orangier" to me. In paticular the Howell Wingback and the Womb chair. Oposite styles but so cool.

Cheers, Aldara.

Tough to choose just one from that bunch even after eliminating the out of budget ones. But enjoy the search!

I think something done with a marimekko print like this http://usstore.marimekko.com/fabric/unikko-canvas-fabric-1.asp
would look great against that blue!

P.S.I love your picks!

I love those colors! My husband would die if I had anything in a floral print, though. He lets me do anything I want, pretty much, with one rule: no flowers.

Dana Haddon said...

Beautiful colors and designs! I think I like the Howell Wingback the best - the walker finish is striking.

My fave is the Regan chair - simple and stunning.

Sarah R said...

Oh my goodness, I want all of these in my house!

Millie said...

I like the wing chairs best. I love orange furniture!

This is crazy...

About 15 years ago, I bought two chairs at the church garage sale: one of them was the exact same lines as the top left chair in your first images, but upholstered in an aqua and pistachio brocade; the other was the exact same lines and color as the top left chair in your second grouping, but with different legs.

And I got both of them for $5. Total.

Sold or gave them away several years later.

Jessica Jones said...

Jana, that's so funny! Wow, $5! Good deal.

I'm a week or so late to the chair party...but I wanted to share with you a chair I own: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80207346/#/20207354
They call it rust, but it's definitely orange. It also has a matching footstool! (sold separately, but worth it) It's super comfy, my husband loves sitting it in to watch tv.

Jessica Jones said...

Oooo, thanks for sharing! It's so helpful to hear from people who actually OWN orange chairs and can make recommendations!
