Are you, like me, also obsessed with faux bamboo chairs? For the longest time, I wanted one and couldn’t for the life of me seem to find an option within my price range. I love the classic look and chinoiserie flair they add to any space.

When I was still on the hunt for the perfect chair, I would scour Craigslist and other similar websites every day, sometimes multiple times a day (this was a few years ago, before purchasing items secondhand online was as easy as it can be now). After a few months of this, I returned home from class one day (I was living in Philadelphia for graduate school at the time), and I stumbled upon the perfect white faux bamboo chair with a yellow cushion that was just $35 and located only a few miles away. Of course, I immediately was sold!

Though I now have my dream faux bamboo chair, I can’t help but search for others from time to time…hey, I have to see what else is on the market, right? In browsing through Bazaar, I came across this gorgeous black lacquered piece with a stunning green velvet cushion. While it doesn’t come cheap, it’s certainly full of style. These chairs are a classic and have survived the test of time, so you can be sure you’re making an investment.

I love these chairs because they make such a statement on their own. Sure, you could always add a colorful throw pillow or reupholster the seat with some bold fabric, but the lines of the chair and just gorgeous on their own and are truly eye-catching. I used my bamboo chair at my desk while in school, and now I use it as a side chair (it’s actually quite comfy!).

What style of chair is your favorite, and do you own a chair like this one?
