Kan man ha for mange stoler? / Can you ever have too many chairs?

Jeg er en lampe- og stoljente. Jeg har samlet på begge deler i flere år og nå har jeg rett og slett flere stoler enn jeg har plass til. I alle fall i vår 50 m2 store stue / spisestue. Ser jeg på et interiør, er det ofte stolen som tiltrekker seg min oppmerksomhet. Er jeg på loppis, finn eller i "vanlige butikker" er det stolene jeg stopper ved.

Her kan du se noen av stolene mine...
I'm a lamps and chairs kinda girl... I've been collecting both for several years, and now I have more chairs than what I have room for. At least in our 540 sq feet living room/dining room. When I look at interiors, it's either the chairs, the lighting (or some times the ceiling and the rugs as well) that draw my attention. If I'm bargain hunting at fleamarkets, finn.no or just ordinary shopping, the chairs are what grab my attention.

Here are some of the chairs in my collection...


Two antique bamboo chairs from around 1915. A paint job is in store for these.


I have eight of these dining chairs. They need some serious LOVE, a paint job (the birch is just too yellow for my taste) and to be reupholstered)


I have two of these. One is going in the nursery after it gets a paint job and reupholstering, the other one I have no idea where to put.

This is the third bamboo chair. Also from around 1915, and will get a coat of chinese red paint.

I really LOVE this chair. I wasn't supposed to do anything to this chair. But then La Dolce Vita posted the picture below from the Ocean 3 showhouse, and how amazing doesn't it look with a little more detail work? (like buttons, and trimming) And a different color! Yellow is not for me though, but teal or duck egg blue would have looked amazing.

These blue chairs would have looked great in my home. So cozy, would have loved to sit in one of them and read my favorite magazine...

The colors here are just divine! I want it all! Three amazing chairs in one room! And I'm still gushing about the colors...

These chairs from ebay.com are cute :)


And this daybed is just perfect.

Love the rocking chair to the right. My life would be very good with an office like this :)


I'm really not a typical PINK girl, but I love this chair as well.

Hvorfor faller jeg alltid for stoler som trenger litt TLC? Det er ikke akkurat slik at jeg har haugevis med tid til overs?? Å sette opp to-do-listen min her hjelper meg til å fokusere på målene mine og jobbe målrettet. Men jeg ser at tidsfristene mine blir flyttet fremover. Familien kommer først :)

So WHY do I always fall for chairs that need some love? It's not like I have too much time between my hands? Having my to-do list on this blog definitly helps me focusing on my goals and working towards them. However I see myself pushing the deadlines. Family first, right?

Stoler, lamper, lysestaker og bilderammer er veldig vanskelig å ikke stoppe ved, for meg. Jeg har også for mange stoler i forhold til plassen, men likevel stopper jeg ofte når jeg ser fine stoler, det være seg på butikker, i magasiner og på internett. Jeg må ofte bare ta meg selv i nakken for ikke å kjøpe noen. Jeg reiste f.eks opp til Fretex bare i tilfelle de ikke hadde solgt stolene som hørte til sofaen jeg kjøpte sist... Heldigvis, får jeg nesten si, var de borte. For jeg hadde ingen aning om hvor jeg skulle hatt dem. I tillegg har jeg tolv spisestuestoler, men "bare" 8 rundt bordet til vanlig. Har flyttet litt rundt på de, ja...

Wow, skal si du hadde noen fine, spesielle stoler også! Ikke akkurat IVAR nei;). Det var en periode jeg gikk og samlet på pene spisestuestoler. 1 av hver teknikken. Men har gått bort fra det nå. Og med en leilighet uten bod er det ikke akkurat så mye man får samlet heller. Alt må jo stå fremme, og det er det ikke plass til.

Håper du fikk en god spa-opplevelse!?!

Kontoret over var bare kjempe lekkert. Jeg gleder meg til å se stolene dine, når de har fått en face lift. Høres veldig spennende ut ;-)

I still think about those blue leather chairs from Mecox Gardens! Love your collection of chairs - especially all the 1915 bamboo chairs.

Mitt Empire - Hehe, ser ut som om vi har det samme problemet! Det er bra vi har en kjellerstue hjemme som enda er uinnredet!

Maya - Jeg har faktisk vurdert en-av-hver stol til spisestuebordet vårt. Det er såpass spesielt og jeg var ikke overbegeistret for stolene til å begynne med. Men skal prøve å male en og trekke om for å se om de blir bra :)

My Wonderworld - spaopplevelsen var absolutt bra! Og ikke hold pusten med stolene, jeg er supertreig! Hihi...

My Notting Hill - Those blue leather chairs are divine! They're just so inviting and a total eye candy ;) The bamboo chairs are going to look fab when I'm finished with them (whenever that will be... lol...)

I love your chairs - cannot wait to see what you do with them!

Oliveaux - thanks! I'm planning on buying paint today or tomorrow :D
