Summery Chair Cushions

vintage iron chairs with pillows

There’s something utterly summery about dainty vintage iron chairs. Like these ones shown, they tend to last forever and have a bygone charm that’s right at home in a cottage, where further scuffs and scrapes will only add to their appeal. I’d put this trio in an entryway instead of the typical bench. I love how the pillows are also different shapes and sizes, but tie the whole vignette together. The fabric is from Jane Churchill.

Cushion fabrics:
On left chair: Seine Stripe, blue J572F-02, Medway Stripe, red J571F-03, Allen Check, red J567F-03.
