Checked slipper chairs: Tom and Julie Murphy found the Candy Land-hued chairs in Ellis’ room at a neighbor’s tag sale. Because they were originally designed to be small fireside seats, they’re perfectly sized for a child’s sanctuary. (Photographer Jeff McNamara, Writer Sarah Latta, Stylist Lili Diallo)
Living Room: 1. Use a neutral chair (or a couple of chairs) if you want a look that'll last a long time. Layer on bold pillows to liven it up. 2.Have a small space? Push two of these armless chairs together to form a loveseat! 3.Try flanking your coffee table with a pair of fun chairs upholstered in a bold pattern.
