Securing the Perfect Statement Chair…with One Kings Lane!

**PLEASE NOTE: While One Kings Lane DID provide me with the request to review their online resources, I was not in any way paid for my review. The following opinion is hereby my own.**

Do you  have a favorite chair at your house? (My hubby has been on me about getting him a recliner so he can have a chair that’s only his! Oh dear…) But more the kind of chair I’m speaking about is what is called a statement chair. Something like this one.

I don’t have one of these, but I have several spots around the house in which I’d like to place a cool statement chair like this one!

So when One Kings Lane contacted me regarding helping them introduce their new Home Decor Resource Guide via a statement chair, I was intrigued! But I wasn’t sure I had a chair to use for the process.

Then I realized that I could use a chair I sit in every single day – my dining room chair!

You may remember a post a while back about me re-covering my dining room chairs. (CLICK HERE IF YOU WANT TO CHECK IT OUT!) Here were my chairs before…

…and here they were after! (The “arm” chairs that sit at the head and the foot of the dining room table remained the same!)

I just figured these were “dining room chairs” but, when I logged on to One Kings Lane’s Home Decor Resource Guide, I discovered something: my chairs are very close to being Biedermeier-Style Chairs!

If you don’t know what that is, no worries, neither did I! HA! They look a little something like this:

What is so neat about the Home Decor Resource Guide is that you can browse by furniture category (things like chairs, sofas, desks, etc.) or by time period (for all you antique furniture fans!) It really is pretty cool how the pieces you have in your home have their own story to tell! While I was looking around, I came across a really neat article called The History of Rocking Chairs, which, of course, I read, with the rocking chair I have in our guest room in mind! So interesting!

If you’ve heard of One Kings Lane, you know they have fantastic high-quality furniture for your home. But with the Home Decor Resource Guide, now they’re so much more! Check them out and see what you can find out about YOUR furniture!

  1. I love the first picture – I would love a statement piece like that in my house! I have never heard of One Kings Lane before nor that they had an app. Will be checking that out

  2. I don’t have a statement piece, but I’ve actually been considering something with a zebra or leppoard print! I really like that colorful one – very cheerful!

  3. This makes me really curious about an old chair I got passed to me from my grandfather. I have shopped at One Kings Lane online before. But it was a couple years ago. I think maybe it was dishes of some kind?

  4. That chair rocks! I am so getting some statement chairs soon, I get their email everyday maybe I should open it! Thanks for the reminder. Have a great weekend!

  5. The resource guide totally rocks! It is part of the treasure hunt to find out the origin of styles (or anything). I have been fascinated with the adds of One Kings Lane, but have yet to purchase anything. They are a great source of inspiration.

  6. I have never heard of One Kings Lane, I need to check them out as we are moving into a new house tomorrow which means new rooms to furnish. I love your dining room chairs, you did a great job re-doing them and they do make a great statement chair.

  7. i do like the idea of refinishing rather than just buying new, especially if you want to make a new “statement” – it can easily be done with up-cycling!

  8. I’ve always wanted a chair that was too funky to be furniture, so when people come in they don’t know whether to leave their jackets on it, or sit in it.

    You did a fantastic job on that chair!

  9. O.K., so I was in love with that chair in “Revenge” the one that had wine tossed on it last season.. I had a beautiful script print all over it, that’s my style of statement chair. I love colorful, but not in my décor.. my husband almost cries when I put bright in the house. There are so many great neutral Statement chairs too and I love the dining room chair ideas! Several years back I covered our dining room chair seats with a leopard print towel.. yes, I said towel. I love texture too, so terry cloth having two sides allowed me to do the chairs very similar but with a slightly different texture using the same set of towels (on super cheap sale of course). I don’t think I’ve ever shopped or browsed One Kings Lane, but going to click on your link and check them out.. sheesh.. they will probably end up on my favorites tab!

  10. I love to learn about where my furniture came from and furniture history, in general. This site looks interesting.

  11. Okay, I think I need One Kings Lane in my life! I’ll soon start redecorating and I need all the help I can get. I no longer have a statement chair since moving to my new home but it’s on the list!

  12. Great website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of
    any community forums that cover the same topics talked about here?
    I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other experienced people that share the same interest.

    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Kudos!
