Sometimes the smallest detail from a picture will capture my interest. This is what happened when I saw the picture above, from Victoria Hagan Interiors. I immediately spotted the unusual chair with the two pictures over it, and this image stayed in my mind.
Of course, I started paying attention whenever I saw the combination of the chair with the art hanging above. This one is from Philip Gorrivan Design. I love the delicacy of the chair, and the art above widens the tableau created by the chest and mirror.
Another interesting and graphic chair under a piece of art, design by Woodson and Rummerfield, via Girl Meets Glamour.
A narrow chair, under a small piece of artwork, on a very small wall. Most people would not have put anything in this space!
I think this is such a beautiful hall, and framing the door to the dining room are lovely chairs and small contemporary paintings. Design by Katherine Newman and Peter Cebulak, via Design Smack. Photographed by Tony Soluri for Architectural Digest.
One thing all of these scenes have in common is a unique quality to the chair. The chair can truly stand alone as a focal point, and the scene is extended with the artwork above. I doubt this would work nearly as well with a characterless chair.
