Desire It… Acquire It!! Button Tufted Dining Chairs

by Katie on April 12, 2011

I’m so excited about this month’s episode of “Desire It… Acquire It!!” I could hardly wait to post! I’ve been daydreaming for nearly two years about replacing our current dining chairs I bought 7 years ago. I invested wisely in my “old” dining chairs and still love them. My plans were to move my existing chairs to the breakfast nook once my daydream became a reality. I’ve been in search of a little change! I finally found the ones I planned to purchase at one of my favorite stores, IO Metro. The grand total for these chairs would be around $800.00, which for four (very nice) dining room chairs, is not so outlandish. I made plans to buy them but each time I went to make the purchase, I choked a little on the price. I put my project on hold and told myself I would purchase them at a later date…After all, I really didn’t “need” new dining chairs..Right?

Well, last week while shopping for another project, I ran into some wonderful dining chairs at none other than World Market! They looked perfect for our dining room and I snatched them right up. I have a few final touches to complete the facelift of the room, and I will be posting about those upgrades very soon! Stay tuned! Here’s a look at my fabulous new dining chairs at the wonderful low price of $99.00 each. At some point I’m thinking of replacing the fabric buttons with some vintage-looking stainless steel buttons. Not sure yet though! I can say unequivocally I love these chairs and, (in my opinion), they look pretty fab in our dining room!

Love this Crate and Barrel Colette Side Chair. It’s gorgeous and comes in many beautiful colors! $499.00.

Baxter Dining Chair from William Sonoma Home, $550.00.


The Morgan Side Chair from William Sonoma Home. A tad bit uninteresting in my opinion for $550.00…

The Hudson Dining Chair from Restoration Hardware, $299.00. Yikes, that’s a bit steep for such a simple chair!

My favorite! Lola side chair from Z Gallerie. $269.00

As you can see, these chairs can be kind of pricey. I’m so glad I held out for my thrifty find. Stay tuned for the the unveiling of my dining room face lift! It’s coming along nicely!

Love the C&B and Restoration Hardware chairs. They are SO beyond my budget, but I’ll just admire them from afar. Great round up!
