I heart Chippendales

Living on in their humor and talent....

It goes without saying that the above two are my all time favorite Chippendales.  Here is my third favorite:
The kind of Chippendale you sit on, rather than the kind that tries to sit on you.
I recently redid this claw-and-ball foot Chippendale for someone.  Unfortunately there are no before pictures, but it was pretty run down.  Some high gloss white paint and vintage flame-stich material transformed the chair into an awesome accent piece for their room. 

Even without the bowtie and shirt-cuffs, intricate carving and details (note claw and ball foot on some) make the classic Chippendale eye candy: 
Traditional Chippendale = he's no Chris Farley, but still good lookin'
Traditional with an twist is more my style.  Contemporary fabric or just paint can turn grandma's heirloom into something edgy, stylish and magical: 
Here's some classic chippendales with lime green fabric, paired with wingbacks
in Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis fabric.  Love the look...image via decorpad.com

See?  Nice to look at, nice to sit on, and no tipping necessary!

I love them too! Funny, before I saw Shaun's chairs I instantly thought of them - so glad you included them! Did you see our new shipment? We just got in some Asian Chips that are painted white - www.shuansmithhome.blogspot.com
