I Love Me Some Chairs.

mid-century teak dining chairs Back in October, I posted about my how my style was evolving and how I really wanted my home to be a reflection of me.  After having our Louis chairs for several months, I started to feel like the dining area was feeling a little too formal for my taste.  The truth is, I've been looking for a  great set of mid-century modern dining chairs for years now but have never been able to score the style I wanted off Craigslist or afford the ones they sell on Queen street.  I'm not the type of girl to drop a paycheck on some chairs.

Enter my Mother.  Serial thrifter; can find just about anything you're looking for.  She came through once again and found these beautiful teak chairs which are just perfect.  I'm pretty sure the neighbours heard me scream when I saw them.

Can you believe these were $12 each? I'm pretty sure the frame is solid teak and the back is a veneer.  I'm loving the curved low back and the modern lines of this chair.  All it needs is a good cleaning and some new upholstery.  I can't wait to get these done, they are going to look great with my dining table!  I'm feeling a little sad to let go of my Louis chairs but I will be keeping one of them and the rest will go to a good home :)

Now here is my question: the previous owner added cushions to the seats.  Do I leave them on, or remove it in order to enhance the original floating seat as seen here?  I'd love to get your input on this, especially if you have similar chairs at home.  And I know some of you do!

Happy almost Friday :)
