Use Thonet chairs to add personality to a workspace.
Tommy Smythe, associate designer with Sarah Richardson Design and co-star of HGTV's Sarah's Cottage and Sarah's House, repurposed key pieces that have followed him from house to house for his current apartment. An antique dresser that has served as a sideboard and night table is now a bar in the living room, and this Victorian butternut table — formerly a kitchen island in his first house — finds new life as a desk. "These pieces have sentimental value, so it's important that I don't get bored with them," he notes.
