When I was in Paris this April visiting my Sister-in-law and her family (they have lived in Paris for the past four years on a government assignment), I came across this furniture store that had these really amazing bar stools in the window.  I happen to be with my hubby and SIL at the time.  We were just strolling down the street after an indulgent lunch, when I sucked in my breath (in euphoria) so dramatically (overly so, I'm sure) they both about dialed Paris's 911.  I quickly steered them into the store to get a closer look.   In addition to the bar stool, there were a couple of other gorg chairs.  My love affair with the lucite chair had begun.  That prompted me to check out a showroom at market called Acrylicore.  Below are the pics I took in Paris and at Arcrylicore.  The bar stool remains my fave.  Which one is yours?

How about that damask velvet? Unfortunately, you can't see the pattern repeated in the lucite seat back

Okay, no lucite, but I love the chair this way too

Recently, Erin, at Elements of Style did a blog post on an acrylic version of the standard Chiavari catering chair. I have a set of the mahogany Chiavaris, but when I saw the acrylic one, I thought I would die.  Okay, I didn't die but I did gasp.  I want to trade mine in.  They suck now.
