OLEBY Sheepskin on Bertoia Chairs

I’m just waiting for my new dining room table to arrive: the 17TH C. MONASTERY DINING TABLE by Restoration Hardware.

I’ve been chair shopping but I’m hesitant to buy anything until I see the new table in my dining room. I decided to soften my bertoia style chairs with some fluffy faux sheepskins from IKEA. They are called OLEBY and are only $9.99 each! I figured that for this price if they do not work I can use them elsewhere in my home. If they do work with the new table then I’ll only need end chairs. (I already have a few chairs in mind, I’ll post my chair picks later this week.)

Next on the 2 do list:
*new hardwood floors (the carpet is finally going to go in 2012…i seriously cannot wait!)
*new shades for dining room and master bedroom
*curtains for master bedroom
*refinish furniture for my daughters bedroom
*artwork for dining room
*kitchen remodel (yes, pretty much everything!)

a few more of my dining room…i cant wait for my new table!

& here is a little more sheepskin on dining chair inspiration. I LOVE the last pic. The bertoia chairs look much softer with the farm style table:

Icelandic Sheepskins

I’m obsessing over these long haired Icelandic sheep skins from Black Sheep White Light. They are so beautiful and surprisingly affordable!

Floor Runner Rugs

Dash and Albert, $84

West Elm, $149 (black/ivory, expresso/ivory)

Dash and Albert, $115, Surya, $183

Surya, $213, Crate & Barrel, $39.95

I’m searching for a floor runner for the entry from the garage into my home. I am thinking stripes or chevron pattern, but debating whether I purchase something colorful or stick with neutral. My fave colorful runner is the first one, and my favorite neutral rug is the brown and cream chevron pattern rug.

hmmmm, decisions, decisions!

braided stripe jute rug

i just ordered this 2 X 3 West Elm Jute rug for my front door. i’ve been looking for a neutral rug for a few weeks and this one was my favorite. the closest West Elm is in Philly so instead i ordered from an Ebay seller. (new with tags & with shipping it actually ended up being $1 cheaper!) can’t wait for it to arrive next week! what kind of rug do you have at your front door?

rug update…

i always get so unlucky at ikea. the rug i was thinking about (in the post below) was sold out in the size i wanted. i was able to see the larger one and decided against it anyway. the cream stripe was too dark so i decided to go with this rug instead. i am not in love with it but hoping when the office is pulled together with the other details that it will fit in ok.
