Bring out the claws

Designers always say its the details that make a room.  Well I really love this detail. 
Look close at the feet on the chairs in all these pictures. 

 


I think I need one too.

Isabella & Max Rooms said...

Emily A. Clark said...

Maybe this will help me to feel better about the clawfoot table I'm getting this weekend from my parents. . .If House Beautiful says it's okay, I guess it is :)

Nicole said...

I'm not going to lie, those legs freak me out a little!

Lavender and Lilies said...

Off the subject but I love that silhouette in the desk area.

LindsB said...

Emily I'm so jealous!! You have to post pics, I bet its just lovely!

my favorite and my best said...

gonna say they creep me out just a tad. i don't totally hate them..just wary of them...like one should be when approaching a wild beast.

Jaime said...

That turquoise bead chandelier is amazing!

Deliciously Organized said...

Totally fun. Love the zigzag one in the office. And the gallery wall.

Paloma {La Dolce Vita} said...

I have to say, I'm not really a fan.

Rachel said...

The claw feet don't bother me too much, it's the "elbows" on the back legs that I'm not super fond of. If the legs were straight, I would like them better.

Freckles Chick said...

So whimsically chic. Imagine a modern-day take on an Alice in Wonderland house!

I'm LOL b/c I agree w/ Rachel--it's the bent angle of the back legs that sort of scare the bejeezus out of me. Like they're ready to pounce.

Stephanie Sabbe said...

CLB said...

High-Heeled Foot in the door said...

I can't believe I didn't notice those chairs had claws!

I'm still on the fence over whether I like them or not.

Hmmm...

I'll give it to you, yes these Chairs are cool, but I'm more obsessed with that blue chandelier and silhouette in the last pic!

urbansardines said...

i love claw feet, especially when they are ornately carved with details on the nails, etc.! I am totally getting an ornate claw-footed bathtub someday!

shoestringliving said...

Wow, those are some interesting chairs. I know the hubby would veto them, but it's nice to see them in other peoples' places.

Chic Coles said...

Those are so much fun...I want them too! :)

Yansy said...

I noticed these chairs in House Beautiful. I don't hate them, but I don't know if I like them! I know one thing, they would totally scare my boys!!! Hmmmm...now there's a thought! They would probably stay out of my bedroom...
