Thursday Thoughts: Chair Dress-up!

I’m easily distracted.An example- I was busy editing some photographs and suddenly decided I want to write a post on chair ‘dresses’ . While looking for those, I thought of the ‘thrones’ bride and groom sit on after they are married here in India! That led to me being annoyed  because it bugs the heck out of me when I think of the couple sitting high up on a platform on these not-so-pretty chairs .Am I being judgmental? Perhaps! but it’s the truth! Say NO to ugly throne type chairs at your wedding! That was me getting distracted because this is not what the post is about! Ugly throne type chairs will get a post of their own some day,but not today. Today is about pretty chairs.

I saw these gorgeous chairs and thought to myself, why do we restrict ourselves in the way we dress up our chairs?

The most typical thing to do is cover the entire chair and tie a sash around it (usually a red one). It may not look SO bad, but it’s boring! We have seen enough of it and want something different!

After a bit of searching , I found there are only a gazillion things you can do to the chairs to make them pretty! I particularly liked these with the big fabric flowers on the back for the bride and groom (see! You can do so much better than ugly thrones for the couple!! ). Also, the chairs are so simple , yet so elegant!

If you left it up to me though- I would totally go with the mismatched look! Love the combination of all kinds of chairs! I would throw in a couple of cool couches too.
