Chinese Chippendale Pagoda Chair

I have long been smitten with Baker's Queene Anne Arm Chair pictured below, but it is terribly pricey. This gorgeous Chinese Chippendale Pagoda Chair available on Etsy from LIVvintage gives me the same feel, but is even more Chinoiserie and a fraction of the price at $225. Imagine it reupholstered in a Chinoiserie damask like Scalmandre Feng Shui shown below. See my post on this fabric here. What fabric would you use? (Update-it has sold too!)


  1. This is going to be GREAT! I see it in heavenly...but all the colors are pretty. It has enough going on that even the neutral would be impactful. I used to work for Scalamandré and I know it is a wonderful fabric.

  2. What a thrill to be shown again on my absolutely favorite blog !! Thank you, and thanks for all the fabulous ideas I have gained from you in the past!!

  3. LOVE the chair & the fabric. For a more whimsical fabric I am lovn'
    Thibaut's Masquerade in black and refinish the frame in coral.

  4. So excited! By default I won this chair on Etsy & she should arrive soon! Yippee! I am now all over the place in trying to decide what to do. Will send results once I figure it all out. Thx for posting the link!
