They're Back

5.12.2014

When I finally got the French farm table and replaced my yellow table the yellow chairs seemed way too big and tall so I used my black chairs that are a bit smaller. Well, I love the yellow chairs and thought I would try them again. So I went to the hoarding storage room and brought them down one by one and took the black ones back upstairs one by one. Yep, I got a work out. You know what? I think I love them so it was worth it.

These chairs sit a bit higher and anyone with really large legs would not be able to sit comfortably, but no one in my family is big like that so these should work just fine.

I'm so glad I never sold the yellow ones. 

I made a couple changes with the centerpiece. I bought this vintage French enamelware pitcher and replaced the smaller pitcher. 

I brought my yellow bee bowls back out.

I picked up this cute little salt and pepper shakers chicken stand at the Pottery Barn outlet marked down plus 40% off. Now, Mr. Savvy can reach his salt easily.







So whatcha think? 
Yellow or black?
Oh, and you can see the black ones here.

Have a super week!

  1. I looked back at the old post of the black chairs. Actually, I adore both...Maybe trade them out seasonally? I would definitely not sell any of them. It looks beautiful either way.

  2. The yellow by a landslide. They bring interest and liveliness to the space plus the scale is better too. Also that color is very Provence!! Love those rush seats.

  3. Most definitely yellow! They make the entire room look bright & cheerful.

  4. I think both sets work quite well, but my favorite is the yellow!

  5. I liked both sets, but I have always loved the yellow ones.

  6. Yep, I like the pop of color that the yellow gives the room.

  7. I like them both. The yellow chairs look very summery. Change to the black chairs in the fall.

  8. Love them both too! Love how you "accessorize" adding the bee bowls with yellow chairs - they are really cute!

  9. Kim, the yellow gets my vote!! I'm crazy about yellow and I just think the yellow looks wonderful against the wood table! Now, must say, I do love the black too! For now, yellow it is!

  10. I agree with Barbara above. Yellow for spring & summer, & the black ones for Autumn & winter. I love the rush seats.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I love them both! My thoughts immediately went to what a few others have said - switch them out seasonally. Great versatility!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yep, yellow summer and black winter. You also will, get two workouts a year!

  13. Always loved the yellow chairs Kim!

  14. Love both ... the yellow looks great for the spring/summer seasons! :)

  15. Love the yellow with the red! But agree, the black would be nice for winter months.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I love it both ways but I think the yellow is fun for spring! This just proves that hoarding pays off :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. My choice would be the black but probably because yellow is not a color I use much. I do think both look good and agree with what many have said about switching them out.

    I love the bread board in place of a tray on the table.

    Also looking foward to hearing about your weight loss plan.

  18. I love having you on my sidebar, because then I can see right away when you post a new story. I'm always so curious to see what you come up with next. I think you are like me in a way - I've always said if I was on house arrest and forced to stay home for a year, I would be happy just playing and rearranging all my "things!" Your storage room would be like an amusement park to me!
    Love the "yeller" chairs!

  19. Good Morning Kim,
    Yep the pops of yellow from the chairs looks so bright and cheerful. Great choice to bring them back.

  20. I like the pop of color the yellow gives to the room, but liked the black as well. I agree with several other comments to change them seasonally!

  21. I love the idea of keeping both sets and trading them out, too. The yellow is perfect for spring and summer and I think the chippy finish is gorgeous!

  22. Both look great, Kim. I'm thinking I would looove to raid your storage room! ;)

  23. Hi Kim,

    Keep the yellow for spring and summer and bring the black chairs back for winter!
    Either way, your eating area will look great!

    Thanks so such a beautiful blog. You definitely have an eye for color and décor! Keep up the great work!

  24. Love the yellow but I agree with the others. Don't get rid of the black ones. They're gorgeous, too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Definitely yellow...I vote yellow!!...great vignette too!....I have at least a dozen chairs in the attic...extra chairs always come in handy!!!....You could bring back the black for Fall...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love them both…beautiful space either way!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Love the yellow, esp. since you have the red curtains back.......now looks like a happy and welcoming room!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I would definitely keep both sets Kim to switch out every so often... but I really love the yellow chairs especially with the red check curtains!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Almost forgot... love the vignette too!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I am loving the yellow and the cute vignette on the table is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like them both. Its nice that you can switch them out like that whenever you want a change. The yellow is nice for the summer too.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I think both of them look great, Kim! Maybe the black ones for winter and the yellow for summer? (Or whenever you want a good workout! : )

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like the yellow for summer and black for fall and winter....so fun to be able to switch chairs out.
    Love the centerpiece...

  34. I have always loved those yellow chairs--and I think they are simply perfect with the table and the curtains! It is so great to have the option of changing out chairs and accessories. The table is so gorgeous--what an exciting find for you and it it perfect in your home...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like the yellow for summer and spring...blk ones for the rest of the year...I guess you could mix and match them...that could be interesting if you tied it together right...or maybe not!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think both look good. The yellow chairs go with some decorations better than the black and the other way around. I like the yellow on the lazy Susan and how it pulls the room more together.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love the yellow chairs and the centerpiece is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Both looked great. I love how you pulled the yellow into your vignette!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Who doesn't like a good change out once in a while! I think the yellow is perfect for spring and summer and love how you brought in more yellow with your tabletop decor! Just gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't think they look large - I think they look perfect Kim! Especially with your other yellow accents! Perfect for summer!

    ReplyDelete
  41. From the start of your blog I have been passionate about the yellow chairs. They look terrific with the antique table. I have just returned from PB Outlet. xo, olive

    ReplyDelete
  42. I like both but the pop of yellow is fun for spring and summer.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I definitely prefer the yellow chairs. They look great with your accents of yellow here and there on the table. Love your curtains also. Yellow always makes me feel good!

  45. Oh luv them!!! But then I have always luved the yellow chairs. A bright pop of colour . Then I popped over to reacquaint myself with the black ones. Sigh... I luv them as well! Keep 'em both! : ) Trade out as the whim hits... win win, plus you get a workout . :)
    Hugs, Gee

  46. Yellow is my favorite color, but I see what you mean by the reduced leg room. Would you consider cutting the legs of the yellow chairs about 1 1/2 to 2 inches? You'd be sitting at a more "normal" height, and the lovely backs would still make a statement.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Kim, I like the yellow. A touch of yellow in your breakfast rooms really says "happy" to me. Looks great with the drapes and really brightens the room. It pays to keep things stored and rotate them in and out.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I LOVE the yellow for Soring and Summer and then the blck ones can come back for Fall and Winter!!! Thank goodness you keep everything:):) It sure comes in handy, huh??? Love how you accessorized the table, LOVE the bee bowls!!

  49. I like the yellow ones with your farm table.

  50. Nothing says summer like yellow and red together. One of my fav outfits ( when I was a stick figure) was a yellow cotton dress with a skinny red belt and little red flats...you color choice makes me smile....love it.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Kim I really like t he yellow with the red curtains. It is so bright and cheery for the warmer weather. Screams farm house. I would have a problem with them because my family has long legs and they are tall.

  52. Black always finishes a room like the outline in coloring books!.... but for summer the yellow ones are a nice lighter change. Agree with others... red and yellow together feels like happiness.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I like them both! I think the yellow ones are perfect for spring, though and they look really great with your blue and yellow vignette. I love the enamel pitcher!

    ReplyDelete
  54. The yellow chairs just pop! They look so good. Love the centerpiece too.

    ReplyDelete
  55. yellow for spring summer and fall-- black for winter:)

  56. Wow, Kimmie! This looks so lovely.

  57. Okay, I guess I'm going to be the only one with a dogmatic opinion....
    the black are MUCH nicer then the yellow!!!!!!!!......the black look much
    nicer with that farmhouse table!!!!!!

  58. The yellow is pure sunshine; the perfect way to start any morning. So glad you boldly went with what brings you joy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  59. Although the yellow looks nice it seems to compete too much with everything else. I like the black chairs with the smaller amounts of yellow in the accessories....IMHO.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi Kim,
    I think you can have great confidence in both looks! It IS hard to choose and that's a good thing. :-) You can change your chairs with your moods. Yellow is lovely for the warmth of sun-filled days and, a more casual look and black is sophisticated. LOVE them both. You have good taste in chairs!

  61. I can't choose! They both look great, but I love the yellow ones for sunny days of spring/summer, and the black ones for fall/winter. Just think - you wouldn't need to go to the gym, you can just keep moving your chairs! Or have a chair-moving party and invite 5 other people for lunch after they each swap a chair!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I remember loving the black chairs when you first introduced the table and now I'm also loving how it all looks with the yellow ones! Keep both sets and just have fun! btw I love all the goodies on the table too :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I prefer the yellow. It seems more French to me.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Both colors have their own character and each gives a great look. I agree, change seasonally as desired. If the table is too low for the chairs, how about adding antique looking wheels or casters or even small stained, turned blocks of wood to table legs to make it a little taller?

    ReplyDelete
  65. First time commenting. Setting aside the topic of "color," I think your French country chairs look more appropriate with your authentic antique French country table. I mean, you went to all the way to freaking France to buy the thing! Can't tell if your French country chairs are authentic antiques, but if they aren't, they're very good reproductions.

    As for the Storehouse chairs, it sounds as though they still hold a lot of sentimental value for you, but, in my opinion, using them brings down the look of your wonderful antique French table. The Storehouse chairs look like exactly what they are: the quality (and style) of furniture that young couples buy, just like the younger Mr. and Mrs. Savvy. Likewise, hasn't Pottery Barn always had chairs very similar to these?

    It appears, from following your blog, that your design knowledge and taste has continued to mature and become more sophisticated. I'm just saying that your wonderful table deserves a set of chairs that enhances the design look, not diminishes it. Let's say you didn't own either set of these chairs. What style and quality of chairs would you look for to go with this table?

    1. Thanks, Mona. No sentimental hold on the black chairs. Just very well made and have just hung onto them in case we need extra seating which we have several times. The yellow ones are cheap reproductions. Yes, they are very French country looking, but were made in Indonesia. Maybe one day I will get a real set of antique chairs that fit the table better. I do love the look of the yellow ones they are just a bit large for the smaller size of the table. The black Storehouse ones are actually a much better quality.

  66. I agree with a few others who said keep both.... switch 'em up you know... just in case!! :) .... but I beg you.... (just kidding of course) ... do not sell the yellow ones..... I loved them from the first time I "toured" your home via the blog!! I am in love with those yellow chairs!!!! :)

  67. Love that pop of color,those chairs look beautiful with your table!

  68. Kim, I read this post yesterday AM but didn't have time to comment... Now I see that I am in with the Switch em up seasonally crowd! :) Love the little Bee Bowls too!

    ReplyDelete
  69. The yellow chairs do make that area pop and look great for the summer, but I agree keep the black for the winter, especially Christmas time. I could see those chairs with red Christmas decorations. So if you've got room to keep them, definitely keep the black and the yellow.

    Great job with decorating!

  70. Somehow I missed this post even though I noticed that you had changed the chairs back to the yellow ones. I still covet these chairs and when I get a windfall somehow, I plan to buy something as close to them as possible. I had bought some second-hand arrow-back chairs that I thought would work...and they did for a couple of years. However, after a couple of spills due to the leg braces splitting and breaking, they are all gone, now. I'm back to the chairs we had five years ago when Mike and I first married and combined households. They aren't comfortable but they are sturdy! Someday...
