Cafe chairs

I am a big fan of what I think of as the "frenchy cafe chair."

I recently used Serena and Lily's riviera chair in this client's kitchen.

(There will eventually be a blue, skirted, backless bench on the window side of the table.)

I just noticed these new cafe chairs from a very affordable source.

It's the "Almsta" chair from Ikea!  $99.  I would love to see a bunch of these at a table paired with a built in banquette, kind of like this.

Someone go ahead and snap these up!


  1. I've been eyeing Serena & Lily's Riviera side chair in mushroom for my kitchen dining that the color you installed in your client's kitchen? What did you think of the color?

    1. Hi Erin,
      These were purchased a while ago and I believe the colors have changed, so I wouldn't want to weigh in. Erin at Elements of Style recently rounded up some sources for similar chairs. Check it out here:

      Good luck!



Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
