Dining with Jack, Union Jack

I'm working on another post right now that I really think you're gonna love seeing, but it inspired me heavily to browse for things that are ordinary, but extraordinary in their interpretation. For example:

I love these tufted dining room chairs upholstered in vintage union jack flag fabric. Not only do they look extremely comfortable, they also provide a pop of color with an instant and easily recognizable modern and trendy pattern that just about everyone is using now-a-days.

Chairs sold at Howe London

Gorgeous, right? I'm not sure that the Howe chairs are in my budget, certainly not for 4, but I'm pretty resourceful. I might just have something right up my sleeve, the left one ... the right is reserved for cheeto's and diet pepsi! Stay tuned.


  1. If you want something like a Howe chair, you could buy one of those Restoration Hardware "deconstructed" chairs and partially upholster it in flag fabric.

  2. Artie I love your first image. A very masculine, clubby feel to it with fabulous art!

  3. Love these, but they sure bring back memories which has nothing to do with decor. As a Canadian back in grade school, many - many - many years ago (more like eons), recall having to learn to draw the Union Jack and the significance of its design. -Brenda-

  4. It is an exciting look, I must admit, not my look but I can see why it would be appealing to many.
    Have a great weekend, Artie.

  5. Love Dan Marty........ this flag way too trendy for me.......(I'm an old stick-in-the-mud) But where is he? He was in the PDC; now, where can I find him??

    He is a genius!

    ps Restoration Hardware,,,,,,(I have a love-hate) with them.....that stupid "whatever they call it......"half upholstered" they copied Dan. He didn't try to sell it.....he just liked in his house, That is authentic!



  6. Quanto buon gusto e originalità, in questo bellissimo blog!
