Teak gets a new do?

Happy 2015 everyone! I can't believe we're 20-days into January and I'm just now finding time to post! Sorry about that, but I can assure you - it's for good reason. (I'll share more in the coming days.) But for now, let's get down to business!
Remember these bad boys?

You've seen them everywhere, right? Maybe you even own a few - or did, once upon a time? They're a wonderfully traditional garden chair, and the teak weathers beautifully. There's no shortage of inspiration pictures with these front and center in garden vignettes.

Beautiful, right? And so functional! They're not terribly uncomfortable, and they will last a lifetime if you care for them. Not to mention, look at how wonderful they look with those crushed pebble patios, and concrete topped tables. (Totally unintentional find by the way!)
Well, when you're living in a small space, having chairs that fold up for easy storage is quite a big deal. And when I saw these reimagined garden chairs by Anthropologie, I knew it was time to break the silence on the blog, and share.

That's right. The once garden banished teak folding chair gets a new do, in punchy John Robshaw-esque fabrics, and gets to play inside with the big boys!
They're called the Terai chair, and Anthropologie sells them for $198 in a variety of fabrics, and colors. I of course became quite smitten with these chairs after seeing them in the pictures I found on pinterest above, so I had to share them with you ... and begin brainstorming a DIY approach to these beauties.
I think I have it under control.
But only time will tell! Stay tuned ...
