Art Chair Inspiration.

Brought from California to Montana – these two beauties were made by two different artists, and speak to two very different themes.

Vintage Arm Chair

The meticulous checkerboard hand-painting on the arm chair surrounds decoupaged black & white images of Reubens-style renaissance drawings depicting bible scenes, pub dancers and a roman bath scene …?! I must say this is a strange mix of subject matter, though that’s artistic license for you (and it is exquisitely executed)!

Deliciously Decorated Dining Chair.

The smaller dining chair is wrapped in antique metal spice cans, food tins and bottle caps. Truly tasty ideas for a fun chair project you can do at home, adding your own creative flair!
