Day 20: Modern Baroque

Today’s post gives thanks to the Baroque Period and provides a showcase of its recent emergence in today’s modern design. This fall and winter we are seeing this comeback style hit the runways and design/fashion magazines in a BIG way!! We can help but jump on the trend wagon!

The style originated in the 1600’s in Rome, Italy and quickly spread across Europe. It is known for its artistic style and exaggerated use of detail to produce drama and grandeur in architecture, painting, dance, literature and music.

Today, in design and fashion, we embrace all of the exquisite elements of Baroque, here are some of our picks!! Can you guess our favorite?

Day 6: High Back Chairs

Today we are thankful for High Back Chairs!!!

Chairs, in general, have been around since the beginning of time. And for thousands of years considered a state of dignity rather than commodity.

In this post, we are not going to bore you with useless information about the history of the high back chair. Instead, we are going to show you some of our favorites to date!! Enjoy!!

LOVE this chair from Restoration Hardware we used for a clients’ dining room head chairs!

We saw these Safavieh chairs last year at the Las Vegas Market. Needless to say, we have a very active Safavieh account!

Doesn’t this chair look like it was built for royalty?? Solid polished stainless steel legs and accent. Original modern design inspired by India.
Made in Asia for a reasonable price. Extraordinary appeal, quality, and comfort that is off the charts.
It really is a chair made for a king or queen.


Thanks for stoping in for this quick post showing our gratitude and love for high back chairs!!!

We are loving these 30 days of thankful design so far… Are you??
